Holidays with Family

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! We did. On Christmas Eve, we went to Jeff City to visit Grandma and Grandpa Sonny. We spent the afternoon there, had fondue for dinner, and then went to church. The kids did very well and we got to stay for the whole service. Grandma and Grandpa were singing with the choir, so it was extra nice to be there.

On Christmas morning, Lainey got us up around 7:30, but we had to go in and wake up Hayden! Hayden enjoyed opening his presents, but Lainey had no interest (other than maybe eating paper.) We played with new toys, had breakfast and just lazed about until that afternoon. We stopped by Great Grandma Campbell's to visit.
Then, Rick, Leslie and Jackson had invited us (along with Grandma and Grandpa Winn and several others) over for dinner. Steak and crab legs!! Yum! The kids had fun opening presents.

Doug's brother, sister-in-law and nephew came in from Indiana right before the New Year. It's always great to see them. I hope that soon we'll be able to go visit them in Indiana! Hayden and Nolan may be 1 1/2 years apart in age, but they play very well together.
Martin, Paige, Doug and I got to go to the Outlet Mall at the Lake one morning (Lainey went with us too.) It was a lot of fun and I hope we're able to do it again sometime!
Nolan and Hayden stayed in JC with Grandma and Grandpa. I think everyone had a lot of fun (although, I'm sure Grandma and Grandpa slept VERY well that night!)

Uncle Darrel, Aunt Meg and Micah were also in town. We all had a very nice dinner at Heisinger in the activity room. Jan and Gary brought BBQ from a little place in the parking lot of Lowe's. It was wonderful!

Love, Jenn
