Alabama Adventures: Christmas Edition

Last week we drove to Alabama to visit with my family for Christmas. It was a lovely few days – plenty to do, lots of great meals, a few visits squeezed in with family and friends, and enough time to actually relax (the hot tub helps!).

You know what’s coming… photos galore!

…Christmas Eve and Christmas Day…

The stockings were hung…

The Christmas story was read aloud (with good ole Bieber crooning in the background)…

The breakfast table was full… (and so were our bellies)

The dog was decked in antlers (and so were we)…

It was a fun day of family, food, and presents!

The rug did not make this puzzle any easier to put together… but the look on that cat’s face spurred us on to finish that afternoon.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

The helicopters can take pictures and video… the video of getting stuck on the roof was pretty funny, including my brother’s hands getting it out of the gutter!

We caught a matinee of Into the Woods (so good!) and ended the night with another great dinner. Clyde was pooped!

…Sunday…

Our adventures in Alabama were over too soon… I’m not ready for the holidays (and 2014) to be over yet! Today is hubby’s birthday, but it’s also the last day at work for the week (woohoo for two-day work weeks!) so it’s not all bleak. Not at all!
