Family Christmas

After getting home from visiting MeMaw and celebrating Christmas, we were ready to go ahead and start opening gifts. We've opened gifts on Christmas Eve for the past several years. But this time it was Dec. 23rd and it was a little sooner than we expected. But since we knew the family was together and Jared was off work, we decided to go ahead and open the gifts a day sooner than usual. I'm glad we did because this gave us more time to relax and spend together the next day and that's what is really important! I don't really have much other than pictures. So, enjoy watching our Christmas gift time unfold through pictures. :)

This was the most memorable gift of the night. Clint & Kristen framed 4 photos together for my parents. It started with their wedding and then had a photo of Jared & Angela's, Mine & Hubs, and Clint & Kristen's weddings all in the frame. It was very sweet and we all enjoyed looking back at the pictures and talking about all of our memories and how things had changed. IMG_9006

The boys got big tubs full of grilling tools and such. They were like little kids opening their tubs.

One of the gifts in the tub was a wire string that is used for kabobs. My parents made them guess what it was used for. Their answers were hilarious! Tent stake, level, etc. etc.!!

The girls got money to go shopping with on new year's day. This is when we buy all of our shoes and purses and a few clothes!

We laughed and laughed when we opened a note with some cash that read "Shop Till You Drop!" This has become our coined phrase when we are together. ;) ;) ;)
