Merry Christmas to all Part 1

Merry Chrismas everyone! We had such a wonderful holiday with so many pictures, that I decided I should probably break it up into two parts. We spent this Christmas home in Marietta with special visits from Noni, Granddaddy, Aunt Rachel and Uncle Nelson. The festivities began Christmas Eve by going to our church's candlelight service. This was the first time in a long time that Jackson stayed in the big church with us, so I was a little nervous. He was an angel! He loved to hold the candle and was very excited to blow it out. We then headed to Aunt Kiera and Uncle Brad's house for a deliciuos dinner. We decided that we would let the kids open up a couple of presents from Noni and Granddaddy so that they wouldn't be too overwhelmed with all their gifts Christmas morning. They opened their gifts like pros. It is so funny to remember that the last Christmas we were all together, Jackson was just 1 week old and Mary was only 4 months. Now look at them! This first picture was in front of Kiera's beautiful Christmas tree. Please ignore my husband's facial expression. This was the only good picture of Jackson, so I had to use it!

Noni with all the grandkids. It is not easy to get a picture with everyone looking at the camera!

Aunt Kiera with my beautiful niece Mary and adorable nephew James (or as Jackson likes to call him...Baby James).

Family shot!

Cheese! We have the same photo from last Thanksgiving. It is so fun to look back at similar photos and see how much the kids have changed. The only one missing was Baby James who had already gone to bed for the evening.

My sister Rachel and her boyfriend Nelson. I am so glad you both were able to spend the holidays with us! We loved having you!!

Jackson opening up presents like it was his job!
That is all for Christmas part 1. Stay tuned for part 2 next week! We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year.
