Christmas in Oklahoma: Part 1

We left the day after Christmas and drove about 11 hours to Edmond and stayed with our great friends, the Carpenters. The next morning we drove on to Mooreland and had Christmas at Brent's parents'.

The kids were so excited to see everyone- and to get more presents.

Thad had to try out Hollace's Paper Jam guitar.
Hollace getting a little help fixing Julie's hair in her new salon chair.

Grammy and Papa got more help than they needed opening presents.

Just when we thought all the presents were opened, more would turn up. So many presents!

Rhett giving Gunnar some DS pointers.

This was a little wrestling game that Rhett got, but everyone had fun with this one. Thad and Uncle Scott are going at it here.

We failed to get a picture of everyone together, or even one of the 4 cousins together! I really need to do better about this.

Grammy Terri did a replay of her famous Christmas morning brunch, so we could enjoy it too. It was a great time with lots of great family and food. We are blessed to be a part of this family!

Wow...11 hours in a car with 3 kids and a husband!! I don't think I could do it! I love Thad's face in the picture where he is holding the guitar!
