Merry Christmas!

 I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was wonderful. Jam packed full, but wonderful! We headed to south GA to see Jordan's grandparents on Friday. It was a long day, but both boys did so well in the car, and everyone enjoyed getting to see them (and meet Colton)! Christmas Eve was pretty laid back. We had to finish a little shopping, and then just hung around until it was time for the Church service (where my sweet child would yell out "No Christmas!" for all to hear and flip out when he wasn't allowed to hold a lit candle. And Colton gave Ashley a nice "welcome home" by throwing up all over her dress and the pew and the floor--fun times!) and dinner out with my family. On the way home, we realized that we had forgotten about cookies for Santa, so slice and bake cookies from Walgreens it was! I'll do better for Santa next year. ;) Once the boys went to bed, we got everything out of the attic and set it out for Christmas morning. I think Jordan and I were more excited than Hampton going to bed that night! Christmas morning was interesting. Hampton is terrified of Santa. He was not thrilled when Jordan went in his room and said that Santa had come. It took a lot of convincing to get him to come out. Poor little monkey! Once he did come out, he was thrilled with his loot and had a blast playing with all his new cars. It was actually hard to get him to open presents b/c he was so distracted by the "big" toys from Santa. After opening presents, we spent the day at my parents' house. Lots of family from both sides came and went, and lots of food was consumed! The next day, we opened more presents at Jordan's parents' house. His brother and wife and 2 kids were in town from Ashville, so we were so happy to get to see them and let the kids play for a bit. Lots of wonderful memories were made this year. Lots of pictures? That's another story. I barely picked up my camera. I am so mad now, but at the time, I was juggling the baby, helping Hampton open presents, visiting with family I hadn't seen in forever, and a million other things. So, alas, I only have a few pictures. And none with the 4 of us. I'll have to make up for it by taking lots and lots of pictures this next year!
