Holiday Catch Up Time

Whew!  It's been a bit!  I can't believe it was only a week ago that I was at work.  It's been a whirlwind of travel and family and SNOW!!!  Friday was my last day at school with the kiddo's, and we made it a fun day.  Since our party was Thursday and school went so close to Christmas this year, several were out on Friday to travel to see family.  (which is exactly what we did the very next morning)  We hit the ground driving the first day of vacation.  It was Christmas at my Granny's in Piggott, and we stayed the night with Kevin's parents and got to see his Uncle Ricky and spend some time with the nephew, Austin.  I love that kid! 
We crammed a lot of family time into a short amount of time.  Granny always gets all the men in the family the same thing, and it's always really good.  This year they all got Razorback coolers!  Awesome!

We got up the next morning and hit the road again back home so Kevin could do some Christmas Eve cooking for people.  And, next day, BACK on the road!!  This time to Kevin's sisters house for his family's Christmas Eve.  Whew!  And, that's not even the END of the whirlwind, but that's where we stop today.
At Kevin's sisters the past two years, we have made it family game day.  We play for gift card prizes.  This year we played Ants in Your Pants and BS.  BS is fun, but I'm NO good at it.  When I lie, you can see it all over my face! ha!

 Once we got home on Christmas Eve, we had about an hour or so, and then headed out AGAIN for a midnight service at the church.  I love that our church does that, so we don't lose focus of what Christmas is really about.  
After the service, Santa brought the pups new dog beds because they were so good this year!!  They immediately crashed! ha!  Stockings had to wait til morning. :)
