November 30 – Colleyville Christmas Tree Lighting
December 8 – Ward Christmas breakfast.
December 20 – opening a couple presents before we drove to Utah. The gifts included a new portable DVD player, headphones, and a bunch of DVDs — all things they could use on the drive!
December 22 – driving to Utah. We needed gas desperately somewhere in the middle of New Mexico and the only place to stop was this little, old gas station along Route 66. DJ literally went inside and asked if the pumps work because he hadn’t seen such old pumps since he was a kid! They sure worked, rotary dials and all! You just pump your gas, then go in and pay.
December 23 – family Christmas “Eve” party. For some reason, the only photos I have from that gathering are blurry.
December 24 – it snowed on Christmas Eve so Raine, Carter, Bella, and Tessa played in it.
