The Holidays have come and gone....

Where does the time go?? I need a vacation from my vacation because we were on the go nearly the entire time we were off!! The time flew by and I feel sooo behind, but we had a wonderful time visiting with family and friends. Now we're on our second week back at work and it's "grindstone" as usual. Anyway... the highlights:
Christmas Eve we decided to run down to Grandma and Grandpa's for a little target practice. (What else do you do on Christmas Eve in Mississippi??? Ha!) This was a first time for both Chelsey and least with a pistol. Chelsey was pretty good at it...I didn't like it at all. I'd much rather shoot a rifle.
Christmas morning found Chelsey having an "only child" Christmas because Natalie and Trevor spent the holiday with their mother in LA. It was a quiet Christmas morning compared to years past when we usually had 5 or 6 kids together. Who knows what next year will bring.New Years Eve was spent getting reacquainted with our grandgirls, Alivia, Audrey and Lilly. They wore Grandpa out with the tickling and "chase me, Grandpa". Lilly didn't want to have much to do with Grandpa but loved Aunt Chelsey. It was wonderful to spend time with them and to visit with Hannah. Thanks, Hannah for meeting up with us!!We also got a chance to visit with Utah family over the break. It's always great to go back HOME!! Loved the Prime Rib,'re the best!! Can't wait for the new little one...Emily and Jake...congrats! Ella, you're a doll baby!! As always, thanks Aunt Judy for letting us settle in for a bit...miss you!!
