Christmas in Charlotte Continued

Unfortunately I can't share the big ole' group photo of all the girlie's in their monogrammed sweatshirts, but this one of Ave is too sweet not to share: 
 She gives me a run for my money on the daily, but this grin...oh this grin  - it can light the darkness! 
 The above two pictures were taken in Mom's new backyard. Since Angel and Catina aren't here very often, Mom and Jim invited everyone over for a tour of their new place. After we heard the design plans for the remodel and everyone got  a walk through, we went for Mexican and then some of us headed to the park. 
 These two are such pals - they stuck to each other like glue at the park. 

 The next day, Catina and Angel and their families headed home. Before the kids got dressed that morning I wanted to snap a picture of the girls in their booties my Mom knitted for them. How cute are these? Love them and all the love put into making them. 

 Play time with cousins is the best! 
 You can take the Mom out of the "stay at home" position, but you can't take the stay at home mom skills out of the Mom. Catina came prepared with crafty stuff! You know Kennedy was ALL ABOUT a craft! 
 How presh is that little snowman?
 After my family left, my other family came in - the Taylor's. On the eve of their arrival the kids opened a few things. 
 Avery got a little electric ride on toy (above) that she loves and Grey was way more into opening presents than I anticipated: 

 The next morning there were lots more presents to open because Nana and Pawpaw excel at spoiling their grand babies ;). 

 The girls were OVER THE TOP about getting the movie Spirit for Christmas. We've watched it a mere 999 times since opening it. Seriously!
 Grey's toys mostly rolled, lit up, made music, and or had a device for banging. His expressions in these photos speak for how he felt about it. 
 The love for Minnie continues. 
 and pet shops...they never get old: 
 The Rainbow Loom - in the early days I had a love/hate with this thing. Listen y'all - the diagram might as well have been in Greek. Praise be that there are YouTube videos to show you how to make these blasted bracelets or we would still be at square one. I can confidently say we've moved on to some advance designs but it takes time, you tube and complete silence...that's all...not intense at all. Ha! 
I just might be able to wrap up Christmas in the next post: gasp!
