King Family Christmas


We had our King family Christmas in Fairfield this year.  God bless our family for putting up with the half of us that were recovering from being sick!  I was suppose to have brought rolls and dessert.  Keith went to Sam's one day while I was sick and bought some Sister Schubert rolls and I had a cheesecake in the freezer that we brought.  I held up my end of the bargain, though I would have preferred to have brought some homemade goodies the energy just wasn't there.  :)  Thankfully the family didn't seem to mind at all! 

After a yummy lunch, we let the kids open all their gifts before doing our white elephant exchange.  Carli and Ava had a lot of fun playing with Logan, Jake, Allison and Weston.  I think that was the highlight of their day.

There were a lot of awesome gifts this year at the white elephant exchange.  We had a lot of gifts get frozen really quickly!  Some of my favorites were a blue jean quilt from Grandma, a sign with Pawpaw's prayer on it, and the every infamous Duck Dynasty video.
 
Here is a picture of my beautiful Grandma on Christmas day.
 

One pretty cool thing is that about 4 pm we noticed that people started posting that it was snowing in DFW and then eventually in Tyler!  Who would have thought we would have gotten a white Christmas?!  We decided to head home before it got too late and the roads got bad.  We got home in time for the girls to see the snow before begging to go to bed!  Exhaustion brought on by a blessed day full of family!
