Christmas celebration #1

Saturday we loaded up the car with presents and luggage until we couldn't fit one more thing in it. We had the cargo carrier on top and the cargo hitch on back. We did save room for our two kids and the dog. Poor Kirby had to sit on a blanket on a folded down car seat. She didn't seem to mind even though we were in the car for a total of 6 hours. The boys are great little travelers and enjoyed watching movies to pass the time.

Our first stop was to Nanny and Papa's house for a mini Christmas.

The kids had fun playing on Nanny and Papa's fun hill

Nanny made 4 beautiful quilts to give her 4 grandchildren. We drew numbers to see which one we each would get. I drew a gorgeous quilt hand embroidered with the 48 state flowers. There were only 48 states at the time the pattern was made, so that tells you how old it is. It's very special to us and we will treasure it always.

After the party, we headed on our 5 hour journey to the lake house. We made it safely and we are ready to spend our days playing with family and relaxing!
