Christmas in Mississippi, Round Three

After a well rested night at the Mr's parent's house, we loaded up and headed south about twenty miles to my parent's house for Christmas, round three. My parents were with us at our home Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but we just celebrated with AC and decided to have the big family Christmas on the 27th.

My brother and his wife drove over from Jackson to be with us that afternoon and night. AC loves loving on her Uncle B and Aunt Mar Mar.

Mom fixed a traditional (to us) Christmas meal of turkey and dressing, with all the fixin's. And after we were finished eating, it was time for the gift giving.

The Mr videoed while I had the DLSR. So we put AC in the floor with her Aunt Mar Mar and Uncle B, and her Ganny. We haven't reviewed the video yet, but the Mr said he got some great rear end views from just about everyone in the family. Ha!


Oh, and don't worry... MB was waiting patiently, just like AC, for her presents, too!


 AC had lots of people helping her open her presents. Maybe next year she can tear into them all by herself!



The next morning we all got up and had pancakes, yes, even AC had a bite or two. Dad left shortly after to head to church to teach his Sunday School class, and the rest of us got ready for big church. (And yes, I'm in my middle thirties, but I still call it big church!)

Of course, we had to take some pictures before we left!


We still have one more Christmas to attend this weekend, the Henson family Christmas. Until last year, we always celebrated on Christmas Day with papaw, but with his passing, we missed last year and decided to push it back later this year. So, I'll have an update on it next week!
