Christmas in North Carolina

We enjoyed our trip to North Carolina for Christmas SO much! We stayed with Angie and Joel and Davis for a week. Chet's grandmother, "G-G" and parents, "Grandma and Grandpa" and Joel's mom, "Dee-Dee" were all there for the festive holiday, as well. We had a wonderful time opening gifts, visiting, cooking, sewing, camping, and most of all, watching the boys play together.



Davis and Stone played very well together. They even shared well, much to our surprise! It was lots of fun to watch them interact and to see the differences in them. They played with trains, keyboards, and jumped off of steps, but their favorite moments were watching Bob the Builder and Thomas the Train on tv.


Stone had never met his great-grandma "G-G", so it was really neat to see him interact with her and to see her get to know him. They played together a lot and I know they both enjoyed every minute! G-G's favorite thing, I think, was clapping for Stone when he would clap for himself as if to encourage everyone to join in. She humored him with praise every day!

It would be bad if i didn't mention the camping trip! Angie and I chose to stay back at the house with the little boys and grandparents while the big boys went adventuring into the NC mountains as they love to do! Since I've never been, I have no idea what goes on in the woods with those guys, but I'm sure I'd rather not know! Chet and Joel enjoyed two days of nature while we were there and I was happy inside the Parker's warm home!


Because I am a little behind the times and do not have a digital camera, I had to use pictures from Angie and Joel. Once I get my film developed and scan in an image or two, I'll share Christmas with the Trussells! I hope you all had a great Christmas with your families this year.

How great that Davis & Stone are so close in age. I'm sure you wish you were closer geographically! Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas. Seeing family is always so much fun!
