December Daily-Day 19

Friday's weather was CRAZY. School cancelled. So much snow, I was really worried that we wouldn't be able to attend any of the parties this weekend. But as predicted, it stopped. We figured the roads were good enough to make it to Jason's Mom's for Christmas. And they were fine, until we entered her subdivision. So thankful for 4x4!

Photos of the night: Grandpa Mark helping Teagen. That's Nick looking on. Hes about 2 months younger than Grady.
Just a shot of the craziness...

From my pics you would think that Grandpa liked toys as much as the kids!


Tea showing off some new Pollys.



Amazing! A Petshop she does not already have!




9 Grand kids. Lots of paper. Lots of Presents. Donna and Mark spoiled us all as usual.





Grady's favorite score of the night. Some good soldier gear! We are happy that now there is some dress-up stuff for him that is not Cinderella or high heels.






Jason's Bro Brandon and his wife Laura enjoying their new camp chairs.







I think Mark may have been in the wine before we all arrived! Kidding, kidding, he's just a goof. Love him. It s actually homemade candy that Laura and the kids had made.









Ahhh, yes. My FANTASTIC red velvet cupcakes. Jason was not impressed(apparently doesn't like cream cheese frosting) But they are sooooo good. I am not one to make a cake from scratch, but this was well worth the effort.
We didn't get home until almost midnight, and then up early the next day to head to my Grandpa! Whew!
