Christmas Part 2

After visiting with my grandmothers (the kiddos great-grandmothers) it was time for the kids to visit with their grandparents. 

On Christmas eve we have Christmas with my dad, step-mom, and my 2 younger brothers.  The kids always love going to visit them.  Below are some pictures from our visit:
Madi with her gift...she is actually playing with this right now as I am blogging.
Jack loves his newest blaster.

The kids with 2 of my 3 brothers Chase and Kevin.  We sure did miss Uncle Jeremy being there.
The kiddos with granddaddy (my dad)

Me with my "step-mom"  We always joke that calling her "step-mom" sounds so evil. 

Me with my dad

After we left my dads, the kids went home to find gifts from Uncle Jeremy.
Thank you Uncle Jeremy for our gifts!

We usually do presents with my in-laws on Christmas night, BUT for the first time in over 100 yrs (I think) We had a white Christmas!  We had around 2 inches of snow on the ground at our house and roads were closing so we could not leave.  Now I know you readers who are much further north than us are probably chuckling that 2 inches of snow would close roads, but it did.  We are not equipped for such weather in the south.  Seriously, one mention of the "s" word and everyone runs to the store for milk and bread and the weather man stays on's quiet funny =)  The snow was so beautiful (check blog tomorrow for part 3 for pics of snow) But true to Bama weather, we will have temps close to upper 60s by end of week...gotta love it.   So anyway, since we could not go on Christmas night, we postponed the dinner a couple nights.   Below are a few pics of that:
The kids waiting by the tree waiting to get into the gifts.

My little sweeties!

Madi showing off her newest dolls.

Jack was excited to get more figures!

The kids also got rollar skates!!!  They L-O-V-E-D them!! 

Both kids skated all over my in-laws house...they had so much fun!  we spent the entire afternoon yesterday outside so they could skate.  They really enjoy this!

Madi helping Granna cook dinner.  She loves to help in the kitchen.

The kids and Pops.  Pops always gives Jason and Jack a pocket knife every year at Christmas.  This is Jason's pocket knife.  The Bama Nat'l championship knife.  He is going to be so excited.  Hopefully Auburn will have the Nat'l Championship pocket knife next year ;)  WAR EAGLE! 

Tomorrow, I will post the pictures from our Christmas morning.  I decided to break this up in 3 parts so it would not be such an overload of pictures =)

The kids look so happy with all the new toys. I'm glad you had such a great Christmas, no thanks to the weather. Can't wait for Part 3.
