For the past three years, James had to work on Christmas, so we had to stay in St. Louis. I guess I could have gone home, but I didn't want to leave him here all alone, so I decided to stay.
Not this year!
We headed to Georgia for a good old fashioned family Christmas, and it was GREAT! Everyone came, and we had so much fun hanging out with the gang.
Miss Belle wore her Christmas pyjamas and spent lots of time playing with her Papa!
She also loved her Uncle Jonathan, who knows a lot about making little girls giggle!

Of course, we made a trip to Mamie's with Tommy and Patty McFarlin...yum!!
Ella loves her cousin, Madeline, who helped a lot with diapers and bottles!
