***BEWARE!!! This post is EXTREMELY picture heavy!
We kicked off our Christmas celebration at Steve and Emily's house last night (Thursday). Since they will be traveling to Macon to see E.M.'s family, they invited us over to have dinner at their house and celebrate the holiday a little early.
The entire gang was there and there was not any "down time" during our visit--Carter and Callen kept things pretty stirred up! My favorite thing was that Callen and Carter wanted to see every picture I took. Every time the flash went off, Callen said, "See!" and came running over to see the picture I had just taken with Carter following not far behind.
Uncle Ken sporting Callen's boa
Callen decided that she REALLY liked celery
Callen decided that she REALLY liked Aunt Em's present
(Please notice what Callen is doing)
Carter singing "Rudolph"
Singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider"
Aunt Em and Big Pat watching the little ones
Uncle Steve and Uncle Ken discussing the finer points of cooking pork and the songs from "A Year Without A Santa Claus"
(Uncle Steve has no memory of watching "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," but can sing the "Heat-miser" song from "A Year Without A Santa Claus")
Callen and Aunt Em
Callen telling Daddy that she doesn't know where her beads are
After dinner at the Lovoy's, Bamma and Big Pat got to keep the kiddos, so "Santa's elves" could get some work done at the North Pole. I haven't heard how the sleep over went, yet, but I can't wait to hear what events occurred!
Merry Christmas, y'all!
