Merry Christmas with our first visitors!

On New Year's Eve my parents and my Mam-maw came up for a quick visit.  It was so fun looking forward to them coming and planning on celebrating Christmas with them then.  It was also good for us to have a deadline of when some things had to be done on the house.  When they drove up the drive way there was lots of jumping up and down, excited kiddos!  (and maybe adults, too!)
 After showing them around and eating dinner together, we decided to have a bonfire.  We roasted yummy marshmallows, had a great Bible challenge from Joshua, and sang some songs.  So much fun!

 Then, it was time to exchange gifts.  Can you tell Silas is developing his new smile for the camera?  I love it!

 Micah was pretty excited about his life size teddy bear from Grandma and Grandpa!

 The next morning Mam-maw gave the gifts she bought for her great grandchildren.  They loved everything!

 4 generations

 Then, my Dad started putting together gifts so we could all play outside.

 The little ones loved their scooters!

 We had fun spotting deer in the yard, then checking out their prints.

So, quickly their visit was over, but we loved every minute and are already planning their return!!

As tradition holds, Mom had a special message for us to find after she left.  Miss you guys already!!
