Christmas #1

This year we had Brian's family visiting the weekend before Christmas and we decided to have our Christmas with them that weekend. It was nice to break things up and not try and cram so much into one or two days.

Brian's parent came into town on Friday so they could keep Mason while Brian and I went to the University of Tennessee vs. UNC Charlotte game in Charlotte. We met some of Brian's friends there and we had a blast even though UT lost.

 The Edwards Family, Brian and Billy.. UT friends.

Saturday evening we hosted a dinner for them followed by our gift exchanged. Like always, Brian's parents were very generous to us and we can not thank them enough. They got me the whole Willow Tree Nativity set, a Pandora charm, the le creuset pans I wanted and a few other wonderful gifts. Brian received a new Band saw, clothes and a bunch of other nice gifts. Traci and Robert gifted Mason 704 baby wipes, burp cloths and a superman sleeper. Unfortunately Robert wasn't able to make it so Traci read him the gifts over the phone. We missed you Robert.

 Doris always has the neatest packing ideas for our gifts. Last year it was baskets, this year it was cute bags.

 We had a wonderful Christmas with Brian's family and can't wait to see them again. And that was Christmas #1!
