We spent Christmas Eve in Plano and McKinney with the Halls. We visited sweet Mema in the morning. Here is Anna giving her a new picture collage of our family.
It doesn't take long before we take over Mema's house.
Four generations of Halls.
Mike, Kim and the kids came back to our house for the afternoon and then we went to the Christmas Eve service at church.
After church, I got to host our first holiday dinner in our house. I loved every minute of preparing and having everyone at our house for this special time together. The little boys got to sit at the adult table.
The girls sat at the kids table in the hallway:).
I think this pic is funny, but typical. Spode Christmas china pitcher with a booster seat in the background.
chocolate pie for dessert, missing a bite.
The cousins opened presents from each other and from Papa. Anna's favorite was this horseback riding Barbie from Papa. (This was the Christmas of Barbie for this girl! All she asked for!)
After everyone left, we got our cookies that the kids had made ready for Santa!!
Don't forget the reindeer food!
It was wonderful spending more time with the Halls and being at home for Christmas.
