We kicked off our festivities with the SWAT team party on Saturday night. We had a blast but stayed out way past our bedtime. Especially since I still hadn't packed us for our four day trek across Texas. So Sunday morning we put it into high gear, and made it to Weatherford just in time for the Cowboys kickoff. - And that's all I'm gonna say about that game because I want to keep this cheerful. - Sunday was Riebe Christmas and it was so great to see all of my family that we don't get to see often enough.
Money, Money, Money
Monday was spent playing with Santa's littlest helper and stuffing our faces with more sugar. No complaints here! Monday evening we went to the Christmas Eve service at my parents church. The sugar plum got passed around all over the place and met a lot of sweet people who had only seen her on Facebook. Then we headed back to my parents house for our family Christmas.
Reading the Christmas story
Now, I know most children get spoiled on Christmas, especially when they are the first born grandchild, but not every kid has a grandmother with a shopping addiction. My kid banked this year.
Wouldn't they look cute in these outfits though?
Plus the gift from her Aunt Aarin that had five different outfits in it! Addy-girl is stocked up for a while! We all went to sleep and waited for Santa to sneak in through the chimney, but were awaken by one crazy thunder, lightening, and hail storm. I bet you all heard the same stuff at your house, but it was soooo loud! Anyways we woke up Tuesday morning and opened a few more gifts from Santa, our stockings, and some Chanel from my daddy. Woohoo! Good job pops! We ate our breakfast and then packed up our things and headed west for Christmas number four in Abilene!
Rudolph showed up!
We had a delicious lunch at Ryan's aunt and uncle's and watched the kiddies open their gifts.
We had so much fun with each set of families and we are so blessed to have so many people to celebrate Jesus' birthday with. I always thank God for sending His son to die for me, but sometimes forget that He was born for us too. I sounds cliche, but I do hope that everyone remembers the true reason for this season! Merry Christmas and happy New Year!
