Christmas: Part II (Family Time)

This year, we traveled to see our families the weekend before Christmas. We were excited to see some people whom we hadn't see in a while. The kids loved being at Grandma Susie's (Mike's grandmother) and getting to see all of the animals and getting to play with some of their cousins.

Clay got to open one of his gifts from Nana and Papa early and he was in love! His new Police Station/Fire Station is so neat and perfect for him. He played and played with it.

We got to do fireworks for the first time with the kids. Clay had a great time with the sparklers but when the big fireworks came out, both kids were done pretty quickly. Oh well, sparklers are fun, too.

Some of their other cousins came out for dinner one night and Clay had a blast. He loves to play with these girls and they are so good to him.

On the last night that we were there we got to see Mike's brother Garrett and his wife, Jamie. Carolina had never met her uncle so it was an exciting time! Here she is getting ready for the big meeting (looking totally adorable, I might add):

Uncle Garrett and Aunt Jamie played hard with the kids and a good time was had by all!

We got to visit with a lot of Mike's family while we were in San Antonio and also have lunch with my dad. Sadly, I didn't take enough pics of the kids with all of their grandparents but needless to say, everyone enjoyed themselves!

We were so glad to get to visit with family and celebrate the season with them. After lots of good food, good visiting and good fun it was time to head home for Christmas!

I don't know how Clay could be any busier or Carolina any more adorable! I believe a good time was had by all!
