Hollyn's First Christmas

Quick Christmas Summary:

We had Christmas with my family the weekend before so that Greg & Jana could be with us. We had a lot of fun and added a sentimental element this year. Everyone was given a little Christmas box and we wrote a note to each person telling that person why we were thankful for him or her. Everyone got to take home a box full of warm fuzzies.

We went to the Christmas Eve service at our church and then to Scott's for his family Christmas. That night Scott and I got everything ready for Santa! That was a lot of fun to be on the other side of it!

On Christmas Day we ate lunch with my family and then visited Scott's Grandparents, aunt & uncle. We love going to the movie on Christmas night so we went to our second movie in the past 9 months!

Saturday we traveled to Dobbin, TX for the Mattern family Christmas. (I can't really tell you how to get there) Hollyn's first road trip! The way down was actually really good. Hollyn was a trooper while meeting about 20 new adults and 6 kids! She was very vocal and let lots of strangers hold her. However the ride home was not so thrilling. She screamed for oh, about and hour and a half! Screamed, people.
Sunday we had Scott's extended family Christmas and she meet lots of new faces.
Overall it was a great Christmas week and I praise God for sending our Savior!
I enjoyed adding Hollyn's stocking to the decorations this year!
