Christmas Part 3: All About the Grandparents

We had a great time on our trip to Mississippi this year to see my family.  We spent some time with my mom...

Here is Mimi & Gracie talking!

Will & Corey loved their new matching AU shirts!

Gracie loved her new bags, stroller & baby she got from Great Grandma Shirley & Mimi.

The big hit was the puppy Gracie got.  You walk it with a leash, it barks, you brush it's hair, etc.  BTW-this is as close to getting a puppy as I want to get for a long time, maybe ever!  

Will loved his new space rocket!  It makes lots of cool sounds and does a lot of neat tricks.

Will & I being reindeer!

Will & Corey with their favorite things... baseball & a guitar (neither of these were gifts but the picture was too cute to pass up sharing).

Gracie enjoyed sitting with her Great Grandpa Willie Joe.  They were pretty cute snuggling, chatting & watching TV.

Then we moved on to my dad's for a little Christmas fun:

Gracie loved her new pink tent that Uncle Jason & Grandpa Penny put together for her.

The Baby Alive is still a favorite around our house.  I'm thinking this is good training for them before the baby comes.

Carolyn & Gracie share a love of Tinkerbell!

And of course, Will was super excited about all of the sports stuff he got.  The Touchdown sign for his room and the Falcon's uniform were so cool!

"Look at me, mom, I'm a Falcon Football player!"  Yes, we are more than Auburn fans these days.

After our trip to Mississippi, we also enjoyed celebrating Christmas with Corey's parents:

Here is a sweet picture of the kids.

And here are a few of the silly ones we got:

They have such a good time playing together.
We also got pictures with Nana & Papaw and the four of us.

Gracie loved her new doll that her Nana made for her.  She came with her own wardrobe and a baby crib built by Papaw.

Will loved the baseball stuff he got and his Cam Newton jersey.

He also loves his new CD player.  He has a CD of the music that Corey recorded for him that he loves to listen to at bedtime.  It takes him so long to fall asleep at night that we thought this might help him settle down a little faster.  It seems to be working!  : ) 

Okay, time for an M&M break with dad.  Have I mentioned that my kids LOVE M&M's!

And, if you haven't already guessed my kids have got a basement full of toys!  Who needs Santa when you have grandparents.  They are blessed...
