Dec. 23 - We spent the evening at the Martins so we could all celebrate together! Mere & DP came in from Charleston & we enjoyed dinner, hangin' out & presents!

Dec. 24 - Christmas Eve we spent lunch at Honey's house with my dad's side of the family. Lemme just say - it's pure, blissful chaos.

Christmas Eve was a little different for us this year. Mike's family spends the day in Columbia & mine used to spend the evening with my mom's side, but with my great-grandmother now in a nursing home we re-jiggered our Christmas activities with them. Since my dad's side celebrates (again) at Honey's we just stayed there for most of the day - with a short family intermission for the Christmas Eve service at Grace...which was A-ma-zing.
an evening stroll .. well, walk for me - scooter ride for Carson & Mike
