well, it's officially been over a month since some of these pictures were taken
o well, such is life :)
hope you enjoy!
we left for Virginia on December 19
on the way down we got to stop in Michican and see my cousin Isreal, his wife Jessica, and their tribe of 6...#7 is on the way :)
we also got to see Dave's grandma and aunt in Ohio
as well as an old friend of mine and her little beauty in Columbus
Elise and Brighton are just a couple of months apart
i was so glad i finally got to meet her!
Christmas Eve was spend at my Granddaddy and Grammy's house.
She always has quite a spread!
This year we were only missing Autumn who was in Poland.
Dave was the proud owner of 2 lobsters from the grandkids gift exchange...but he didn't keep them long! they were a hot item :)
the grands and one great grand :)
we spent Christmas Day up at Dave's parents cabin
i forgot my camera :(
but thankfully Sandra had hers, so the following pictures are compliments of her
now, what better thing to do back at a cabin in the woods, than some skeet shooting?
Trent had gotten a shotgun for Christmas and brought it down w/ him
so after breakfast, reading the Christmas story, and opening gifts, we all took our turn shooting skeet :)
my family had their Christmas the day after Christmas
Brighton always enjoys looking at the fish
she was pretty fascinated w/ the gift that Granddad and Mummsy got her from Timeless Toys
she played w/ those balls most of the day :)
Uncle Christian trying to be as cool as his little niece ;)
Also, Brighton hit a milestone while we were home...her 1 year bday!
o how we love this little munchkin!
we are so thankful for the year God has given us w/ her
and here are a few more snapshots of the rest of our time in VA:
making baskets one day
28 hrs. on the road will do this to a baby...eventually...at least that's what you pray! ;)
parting shot :)
