The First of Christmas

We are in full swing of Christmas festivities. We spread ours out over a week which works best with the babies so they don't get too overwhelmed with everything. 

Look who came to spend the day with us on Thursday! 

We had big plans to bake gingerbread cookie for Santa in our matching Santa pajamas. 

This will be our last Christmas together before the big move. My sister and her family are moving to Central Asia next year. Our lives are going to be forever changed and I'll miss them so much. Savoring every memory this year. #goodthingshardthings

We had plenty of help in the cinnamon department :)

Wednesday we had an early Christmas with Meme. Meme with all seven of her grandkids. Six girls, one boy. And now it's three girls and one boy for great grandbabies. No doubt it's a girl dominant family but sweet Jack boy is keeping the Harrison name alive.

The only boy Mark's family minus Jake who got called out for work during the gathering.

Georgia, Ada, Jack and Lola with Meme on her 83rd Christmas.

Sweet Georgia and Lola had such a fun night playing together! They are 7 months apart and were so happy together :)

Sweet babies sampling the finished gingerbread cookies. 

Thursday night we had Christmas at Ma and Pa's house. Cowboy Jack received a sheriff's hat and wore it while opening his cowhide wrapped gift from Uncle Jake and Aunt Shanna. All boy!

Sister opening up her new pair of Ugg boots! She was really wanting a pair of these.

Both babies really enjoyed opening gifts this year. We would let them open first and then they could play with their gifts while everyone else opened. You can see Jack's John Deere tractor and Georgia's Barbie camper in the background.

Ma and her grandbabies. She always makes Christmas with them so special. We had gumbo for supper and hot chocolate to sip on while we opened gifts and enjoyed each other's company. I love my family! 

Ma and Pa gifted them more matching Christmas pajamas. I promise they will wear matching Christmas pajamas until they leave for college. 

Merry Christmas, friends! Of course I'm behind on my posting with all the holiday goodness that's going on but I hope to get most everything blogged before we start 2017. It's hard to believe Christmas and 2016 in general has come and gone. It has been a very sweet ending to an awesome year for us.
