Christmas: part 3

Now.. on to Dallas. We had a great time with family & we were finally able to catch up with a few friends that I hadn't seen since our wedding. We wish we could have stayed longer to see even more. But it was still incredibly nice to be home. We went back & forth between all of our families houses doing gift exchange after gift exchange after gift exchange... and eating more than we could fit in our belly. It was so fun finally getting to have Freeland with me during the holidays and on Christmas morning. Our first Christmas as a "family" was very memorable for us. First we spent the afternoon on Christmas Eve with my mom & family. Its crazy how large the family is starting to get with all the new additions! But we love having lots & lots of people. These are a few pictures from Christmas Eve and Christmas day. We broke it up into 2 this year.. which worked out nice:

Freeland was added to the stockings this year.. that way Santa knew to leave him stuff also.

The whole family all together (minus Allie, Bethany, Kristen, Steven)
