Christmas Cheer, Part 2

We had a fantastic Christmas this year. Ryann definitely had more fun this year because she was so much more aware. We enjoyed sharing our Christmas Eve with my parents, brother, and Alan. Alan had never experienced anything Christmas before, so it was neat to look at it through his eyes. Christmas morning, Mark, Ryann, and I had our own Christmas time, where we gave Ryann her stocking, which was filled with Elmo paraphernalia, her current BFF. We then went to the Lambs for a delicious breakfast,presents, and another delicious lunch. After lunch, we made our way down to the Southside for Christmas with the Castleberrys. We enjoyed presents with them,the new addition of Christmas trivia games and puzzles (with prizes)...which got a little heated, and a tasty Mexican dinner. All in all, it was so nice to be with our families....we felt and feel very blessed.

My parents gave Ryann a kitchen...which is far nicer than our kitchen

Ryann's First Official Stocking

Perhaps my favorite Christmas 2008 picture, Mark is very disturbed and disgusted by the sassy, lacy tank top his sister, Sarah, got in her stocking

So Very Tired...

Read got Ryann a Texas Tech "Crabtree" Crab hat, which she did not like wearing...

However, Read didn't mind wearing it

Or Mark
