This year for Christmas we went to Texas. It was really cool because it was the first time everyone (all the siblings and their spouses, and their babies) have been together. It was tons of fun! To sum up the vacation in one sentence; We played games and ate and played games and ate and played games and slept, then repeat (for 2 weeks). Since a picture says a thousand words, I'll let them do the rest of the talking.

On our way down to Texas we routed our plane through Arizona so Grandma could see her great grandson.


Once arriving in Texas, Nana couldn't let her newest little grand baby out of her sight. They bonded on the couch like this many times.


Needless to say, Emperor Knightley was one spoiled kid for his first Christmas.


Ashton is either genuinely concerned for his younger cousin, or he just wants his bottle.


The tree was a massive 11ft foot tall behemoth!


Knightley's 1st Christmas, so cute.


Christmas Eve dinner. Mmm boy!


For Christmas Eve we all play Christmas songs on our instruments. This is the first time ALL of us are playing together. David-Clarinet, Jeffrey-Alto Sax, Trevin-Trumpet, Ashley-French Horn, Cody-Trombone, Chanelle-Flute.


Christmas Day! Stocking goodies are on the table.


Knightley's blessing day at church.


His cute blessing outfit. This is the same outfit I was blessed in.

Knightley is getting bigger! Here is a short clip of our little knightley!
