Christmas in Dallas

We had a wonderful Christmas spending time with my family in Dallas. I just love this crazy crew so much!! It's always such torture to leave!! Here are LOTS of pics from our time together...

We enjoyed an awesome Christmas Eve service at Watermark, then went back to Cookie and Papo's for our traditional Fajita dinner:

The overflow of gifts under the tree!!

All the grandkids got to open their gifts from Grandmama and Grandaddy on Christmas Eve. Lyla and Annie got these great interactive books that were a huge hit!!

Just your typical Christmas Eve nap with your brother-in-law:

Sweet Grandmama and Grandaddy. We loved getting to spend lots of time with them:

Christmas morning, Olivia brought over her new drum kit that Santa brought her and it was a huge hit among all the girl cousins...Rockstars:

If you have ever eaten a meal with John David, then you know that this huge container of pepper will be gone in one week:

After Christmas, Lyla and Lowen finally got to meet!! Such a treat seeing my dear friend!! :)
