Ok, so I'm a little behind - alright - a lot behind! I've got lots of catching up to do on our blog but here's a start!
We celebrated Christmas with Laura's family the Saturday before Christmas up at Grammy & Papa's house in Dahlonega. It was a fun, special time together. Part of the fun was the kids decorating gingerbread houses.Grammy said she'd put the houses out for the deer to eat. Hopefully they didn't get sick from all the sugar!!! They were VERY WELL decorated gingerbread houses (that is, total area covered with some form of sugar - frosting, sugar, candies, etc).
Rachel taking it all in.

Heidi and her pile of presents.
Emma and Heidi enjoyed the opportunity to help open Rachel's presents. She got lots of diapers.
Rachel did get a few new toys - not just diapers. :-)

Rachel with Aunt Michele.
We went to the family Christmas Eve service at church. Which is code for lots of kids and it's ok if they aren't quiet. It's very much geared to the children which is neat. Emma's choir sang a couple songs, but I didn't get any good pictures.
Heidi and Emma always enjoy their time with Grammy & Papa! Here's Heidi lovin' on Grammy.
This was actually taken a couple weeks before Christmas, but one day when I picked up Heidi from preschool, all of them were dressed as little Rudolphs - complete with antlers and red noses. Here she is with her Rudolph.
Stay tuned for the next post. This was only the beginning of Christmas!
