We got to Spartanburg on the Saturday before Christmas and got to spend the night with the Pangles too so we let the boys exchange gifts and gave joint gifts to Jan and Larry. It was fun to see them opening presents. This year they were really excited.
The next day we went to the Duplers house and Dad, Diane and Gregory were in town and we all exchanged gifts and decorated cookies and had a wonderful meal that Allison cooked for us. The boys were so excited I think they asked if they could open gifts maybe 20 times!
The next day Martha Jane and Jay arrived and John Lawrence was Martha Jane's Shadow. He made her do lots of kid things. I think she almost knows what it feels like to have a kid!!! Mac wanted Larry or Mason the entire time so I got a really nice break!!! This was Christmas Eve day so we relaxed and laid around.
Christmas was so exciting!!! John Lawrence was completely sure he saw Santa's sleigh. After Martha Jane took him out to look the 4th time they finally saw it. I think maybe even heard the bells. We woke up at 7:00am and it was non stop until that night. Santa came and left presents and John Lawrence's favorite was the Spiderman Scooter.
At lunchtime we were off to Grandma Walker's house. The lunch was the best ever! It was like a Thanksgiving Feast-WONDERFUL! Then at dinnertime we were off to Mammy's house. The kids opened presents and had a ball playing together. We had a good time, but must say that we missed Uncle Steve not being there.
We had a wonderful Christmas and really enjoy celebrating it at Larry and Jan's house in Spartanburg. John Lawrence did not want to leave; however, it was just for 2 days because they were going to watch the boys that weekend. We had guests coming in that we had not seen in a year and it was going to be a kid less weekend! Thanks Larry and Jan!!! We had a great weekend.
