We went to visit my family in Arkansas the weekend before Christmas. We had a very busy weekend with my grandparent's Christmas party on Saturday. Santa made a visit and brought a large bag full of gifts. The kids loved visiting with him, except for Tate! Later that night we celebrated my nephew's 10th birthday party at a pizza restuarant in Cabot then off to the bowling alley where we all enjoyed bowling. Even Tate rolled a ball or 2 down the lane. On Sunday, we had my parent's Christmas party with my brother and his family and my sister and her family. We had a great time with boxes and paper flying all over the room. On Monday, Brent and I went to nice restaurant in North Little Rock to eat dinner with my brother James and his wife Shannon and my sister Mindy and her husband Jeremy for our Christmas. We got up nice and early and made our way back to Tuscaloosa on Saturday. I am still exhausted from that trip.
