Christmas in Savannah!
This past weekend we celebrated Christmas again, with Kevin's family. It worked out perfect because Kevin's dad got off the boat, Grace was down, and Kevin and the kids were able to go a few days early to really visit. I joined them New Year's day since I had to work late New Year's eve. It was a great weekend. We did things a little differently this year. Instead of making the rounds to everyone's house, everyone came to Da's and Nonna's house on Friday. It made for a much less hectic weekend, but we were still able to see mostly everyone and enjoy the holiday's.
Maddie received a scooter from Nonna and Da and Turner got a motorized car. They were both hits and the kids are really going to have fun once it warms up outside. From the rest of the family, my children received a whole new wardrobe each and money. I was amazed at the clothes they got. I am hoping it stays cold for a while so they can get plenty of wear out of them! We had plenty of good food and appreciate Nonna for all her hard work in the kitchen!
Maddie and Turner enjoyed being able to play with their cousins. Maddie loves them all but she and Brayden are like two peas in a pod. He spent most of the weekend with us, so they had plenty of time to play:) Maddie and Brayden are the same age difference as she and Turner, so I hope that they play just as well together as they get older. We played a lot of Wii, (I got really sore) ate a lot, and just spent time as a family. It was another great Christmas celebration and we always enjoy our time in Savannah. We love you all!!
