Williams Christmas 2011

Thursday evening we arrived in Rogers and had a nice family dinner.  Then Jolene, Ryan, Jonathan, Andrew and I all went to see Sherlock Holmes.  Andrew and I loved it!!

Friday morning I headed over to Jolene and Ryan's to help get started on our Christmas Eve dinner. 
I guess I should also say we did everything a day earlier since Christmas fell on a Sunday. The plan was so we could still go to church without having the issue of some little girls not wanting to leave their newly opened presents.
The girls had a blast playing/painting beforehand.

The many faces of Hadley Marie.

Some of the cooks for the day.  =)

Fried turkey, Roasted Duck, Cranberry Chutney, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Vegetable Tarte Tatin

Aww... getting to enjoy it!

After dinner we all played games.  Hadley was sitting at the little table observing then the next minute she was passed out.  Too cute!

Everyone enjoyed games.

 Our little family.

Getting ready for our Christmas Eve tradition: Pap-pa reading Twas the Night Before Christmas, drinking glass bottle coke and enjoying some Christmas cookies.

In the zone.

HoHo left Audrey quite the loot!

"Christmas" morning Jolene made chocolate raspberry filling Ebelskivers.

Enjoying a cup of jo in a HoHo mug. Let the festivities begin!

(Which didn't come off till bedtime.)

Jonathan got me some AWESOME gloves that I can wear AND still use my iphone.  And Grandma and Pap-pa got us another great game.

Jonathan's gifts all went together for his big gift.
*Bow, Arrows,  & Finger Thingy*
(Funny enough we got him the "finger thingy" and I don't even know what it's called.)

Last but not least mom got an unexpected gift from HoHo. 
Some new Tony Lamas.

The girls rockin' their new boots.

The girls racked up.

The rest of us didn't do too bad either.

Another GREAT Christmas down!!  

Sunday we enjoyed an amazing church service and then lunch with the family.  We also did some redecorating at Mimi and Pap-pa's but that's another post, ha.  =)

Before leaving on Monday we checked out the post Christmas sales and then met up with our friends Kristin and Mike, or as Hadley would call them Uncle Mike and Aunt Kristin.  She got yet another awesome gift and was eager to try each nail polish and gloss out before putting them back into the baggy they came with. 

We had a wonderful time with both of our families but are definitely glad to be back home.  We have already taken down all of our Christmas decor and I have started a list of DIY projects around the house.

Thanks for checkin' in!!
