What a wonderful week we had at the Christmas House in Savannah! Everyone was there and we even got a special visit from Aunt LeAnn, Uncle Barry and Parky. Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark weren’t able to stay the whole week but we certainly enjoyed the time we did get with them. Granny, Poppy, Uncle Michael and GAMA were there the whole week and it sure was fun. We went to a hotel to see a big gingerbread house which was fun, played at the park and even took a day trip to Tybee Island to see a lighthouse. The lighthouse was 178 stairs to the top and Garet and Kitt climbed all on their own. Mommy wore Ryan as they climbed and Daddy helped make sure no one fell. It was really neat to see the ocean from way high up. Then it was Christmas Day! Ryan, of course, had no idea what all was going on but she still seemed to enjoy it. As for the rest of the week, Ryan seemed to be a little under the weather but she is doing much better now that we’re home. Kitt and Garet had so much fun opening presents and playing with their new toys, but the best part was spending time with those we all love. When Mommy asked us what our favorite part of the Christmas House was, Kitt responded, “Granny and Poppy.” We all agree that the best part was spending time and having fun with our family. There was lots of delicious food and plenty of fun. One night we rode a trolley to see lights–the trolley was fun, but we really enjoyed our snacks at the fire pit that night. Kitt ate her marshmallow raw but enoyed popcorn for the first time. Garet, on the other hand, really enjoyed her first s’more! Kitt and Garet did great in their big girl beds and didn’t want to sleep in their cribs when we got home. No worries, though, Daddy and Poppy converted the cribs to toddler beds and Ryan is much happier now that she is back in her bed. We are excited to have Granny and Poppy stay at our house for a few more days to bring in the new year! That is about all from her for now. We are hoping all of you had a wonderful holiday season with those you love most as well!
Great picture of the whole family as well as the others. Wish we could have seen everyone! Aunt Bonnie
What a fun-filled week we had girls. Your mommy and daddy found a great Christmas house for 2012 – so much to see and do in Savannah. It is always especially special to spend time with all our relatives and to share presents with the ones we love. I’m praying that God will keep you healthy and happy in 2013. Love you lots, Granny
Looked like a wonderful gathering, what great memories being made! Love all the photos. Happy new Year Jackie
