We had a fantastic Christmas this year! I already posted the Harrison Christmas that we celebrated on the 22nd...but, we also celebrated the Joyner family Christmas on the 23rd and then, the much awaited Flying H Trailer Park Christmas in East Texas.
Kinley was also totally overwhelmed with the number of presents from my mom's side of family Christmas...among her favs were Ni Hao, Ki-Lan DVD's from Mom and Dad, a Kai-Lan doll from Matt, and a Harvard Sweatshirt from Bart & Olivia. Also, Aunt Jan gave Kinley a book with a fantastic poem she wrote which told her how much she loved her and how she will give her a book for all her Christmases to come! So sweet and thoughtful!
I love this face!
The traditional stairstep pic...it was a tough race between Danny, Bryan and Ben this year...but, Kinley was for sure the shortest....yea for Olivia!
Scott's fantastic WT hair...that happens to be mine :-) looks awesome with the Santa hat!
On the 24th, the morning after Joyner family Christmas, we left with our trailers to the trailer park Christmas!
We set up a camp of 4 trailers in a circle with fantastic Christmas welcome signs outside each trailer. The boys also went out in Inie & Bull's yard and cut down a pine tree for a Christmas tree in the middle which the boys decorated with tinsel and white lights!
Kinley's set-up in our trailer!
David carved this fantastic sign for Bull out of a tree off his ranch over the course of about 10 months! The perfect entrance to our trailer park!
Bull's face when he saw the sign...I love this pic!
Christmas Eve all the family went to Christmas Eve service at Dekalb United Methodist Church...we basically took up the whole right side of the church and Inie and Bull heard about it for days. We worked hard months in advance for the babies to have exactly the same matching outfits for church and they looked adorable!
The girls in church!
We tried as hard as we could to get a good pic of all the babies after church...here is the best we got. They did well for a while until one started crying and one by one...the all started :-)
The lineup of babies in age order: Aubrey (16 months), Kinley (9 months), Winlon (7 months), and Luke (4 months).
Christmas day we opened our stockings in Mom & Dad's trailer...never thought I would say that!
Pretty blue eyes!
Then we all put on our shirts for Christmas day!
Boys in green...girls in red!
Christmas lunch was good for everyone!
Look how big Luke is!
A tradition of ours that we do every holiday is sit in a big circle and basically tell each other what we are thankful for and what we loved during the last year...it is a big excuse for us to all sit around and cry a lot. Maybe weird for some but, normal for us. Bull starts it off and we cry the whole time!
After lunch it was time for family pics outside with our fantastic trailer park as a background!
It was really bright...so, the boys are squinting.
All the grandkids and great-grandkids with Inie & Bull
Bull wanted a pic with all the 'red shirts'...
...so Inie got a pic with all the green shirts!
Overall, it was a wonderful Christmas! Kinley was so loved on and we are so thankful for the amazing family that we have!
