christmas village

Graham and I headed home Thursday morning so I could attend Christmas Village with my mom and sister. If you've read my blog for a while you know that is a special day for me and I haven't missed it the past 7 years.  And I was very thankful it worked out where I could go this year.

I decided to take Graham since he still flys for free.  And Sawyer and Keith had a boys weekend at home. 

Gra did awesome flying  both ways.  And took a good stroller nap during our lay over in Dallas.

Friday morning all ready to go.  We make matching shirts every year.  Just part of our tradition.  We did miss Sarah this year.

Another part of our tradition is meeting my cute Granddad for breakfast.  I'm so thankful we were able to visit with him for a bit.

We had a great, laughing and getting lots of creative ideas.
My Dad and Kathy kept Graham for me and he was able to visit with some great grandparents too. 

And Saturday morning we stopped by to visit Whit and her boys and see their beautiful new house.  It was so nice sipping coffee and just hanging out catching up with her while the boys played.  I was so sad Sawyer wasn't there to play with his buddy Fearing.  But hopefully we'll see them again very soon!

Graham and Finn

And that afternoon I got to visit my sweet friend and new mommy, Amanda, and love on little Hollis.  Amanda looks great and her and Mitch are such precious parents.  I'm so happy for them.  And Hollis is so precious and snugly.  Man, I was in heaven holding that baby girl!

And topped off the trip with a yummy meal with my mom and Bob and the Bolands.

We left really early Sunday morning to head back home. 
 It was nice to get back to the other half of my boys.
