Its been a week full of fun activities! The kids are out of school, so it has been busy around here!
This is just to highlight some of our adventures. (Click on image to see larger picture)
We started off at Pawpaw and Nana's house. We enjoyed all of our family.
We then celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve. We all opened lots of presents!
We spent Christmas morning at our home. The kids went through their stockings from "Santa" and opened their gifts from us. The theme for the girls were Littlest Pet Shop- I think we own everything "Pet Shop" now!
And Dylan got a new tractor! But this tractor isnt new, it was Joel's when he was a little boy. Our daddy restored it- isnt it amazing? This tractor is solid medal and will last many more centuries to come!
Taylor enjoying his new sippycups and toys in the trailor of the tractor. He also got a walker to help him walk- yes he is now a crawler! That is a post in itself!
We also visited our Granny's family. It was fun to see the extended family. (forgot to take the camera for photos)
We spent the rest of the week baking with mom's new mixer, having manicures and pedicures with our new polishes, and playing with all our new toys. Daddy got to stay home too. It was nice.
This last Friday we spent the evening with Granny and Granpa and all our cousins and aunts and uncles. We had a special Christmas! We couldn't believe it, but Uncle Matthew showed up as a surprise!! We love our Uncle Matt (Taylor is named after him- Matthew Taylor) The girls were estatic to get their new Bibles.
This is what our dad looked like most of the week. Carrying packages and presents!
Finally, on Saturday, we had the "Strickland Family Christmas". Lots of folks resembling the Strickland clan came. We had a great time, Papa and Granny have lots of space for the kids to run and play. Taylor and Jackson also got to play together, it was cuuute!
We are so blessed to be able to have spent our Christmas with so much family! It was a rich week! We hope your Christmas was just as rich!
