Petty Family Christmas

I'm finally finishing up putting Christmas pictures on here! At least I got it done before Easter! We celebrated Christmas with the Petty family the week after Christmas when Brian's sister Kimberly and her family were in town. We had a big dinner and opened presents. It was lots of fun. It's always an adventure when we get together. Imagine 10 adults, an 8 year old, a six year old, FOUR 3 year olds, two 1 year olds and one 6 month old! Yup, that's the truth. We are a fertile bunch. It is so great to all be together though, and bless Brian's mom for allowing us to all be in her house at one time! Here are some pictures of the fun.

Christmas Morning

Okay, so this post is a little late, but better late than never! These are some pictures from Christmas morning at our house. This is a special time for us. It is the only time over Christmas that it is just the 4 of us. We love being with both of our families, but it is sweet to have this litte time just with the kids. We opened gifts from Santa and ate breakfast together. Then after the kids played for a few hours we went to Kendria and Bryce's house for lunch. The kids had so much fun opening their gifts from Santa. They were so excited this year. I loved seeing the looks on their faces. We're so thankful for our 2 precious children and that we were able to have such a great Christmas together.

Christmas Eve at Mom and Dad's

On Christmas Eve we always have a big dinner and open gifts with my family. It is definitely a highlight of my year. We had a great time this year. The kids are at such fun ages, and really make it so fun. As usual Mom made an AMAZING meal with everyones' favorites! Here are some pics from the night. Unfortunately, in my focus on the kiddos, I didn't get pics of all the grown ups, but Mom, Dad, Aunt Karen, and my NaNa were all there with us!
Ansley was excited about her new pony!
