We decided to celebrate Christmas with Tracie's family on New Year's Eve. The kids were excited because it meant they got to open more presents. Enjoy the pictures.

Nana sat at the little kids table so that they would sit there with her and save room at the big table for the adults. This is what happened...

All of the kids were at the big table and Nana ate alone at the little table!

Kolten kept trying to put the horn in his mouth and Kerrie kept taking it out. It was a battle!

Believe it or not, all of the kids were up at midnight! Karlie and Kolten had been sleeping. Karlie got up to eat and Kolten was getting ready to leave. Kaden and Cooper didn't go to sleep until they got home! It was a very low key New Year's Eve, but it was nice to hang out with my family! I love yall! Thanks for all of the great Christmas presents!

Love,
Kyle, Shanda and Karlie

Aunt Trac's Cheer Nationals

Tracie's Varsity Cheerleaders won state back in November for the Game day Division and went to Nationals. Mom, Aunt Mary and I took Karlie to see Aunt Trac and the cheerleaders compete. One of Tracie's cheerleaders and her mom bought Karlie this cute bow and I made the onesie. Thanks Amy and Hailie for the cute bow!

Tracie's girls finished 3rd for the day in the Performance Division and 8th for the day in the Game Day. They did an awesome job and are extremely talented girls! I look forward to seeing what each of them go on to do in the future. Congratulations girls!

Love,
Shanda and Karlie

Christmas Day

Christmas day was a little different this year. We always spend Christmas day with my family, this year Tracie's whole family got a stomach virus and weren't able to join us. There were lots of tears shed, but we made the best of it.

Christmas morning Mom and Dad came over and watched Kyle and I open Karlie's presents. It's kind of funny, I wrapped every present and then turned around and unwrapped it!

After we opened presents at our house we went to Tracie and Bryan's to deliver Bryan's Christmas present. We stayed outside because we did not want to get the virus they had.

This was given to Bryan by his grandfather years ago. Tracie and Dad have been working to get it restored the last few years. What do you think?

Bryan really liked it and so did the boys.

After that we went to Nana and Papa's to join the rest of the family to open presents.

We had a very quiet Christmas this year, but a very good one.
