Christmas 2009 and Tucker's Baptism

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. We spent Christmas with Adam's family and then just celebrated with my family this past weekend. We ended up leaving the Monday before Christmas due to the snow and ice storm that was to come on Tuesday. I was thankful that we were able to leave town before the nasty weather came. We stayed at Adam's parent's house for a whole week. On the Sunday after Christmas (the 27th) we were blessed to have Tucker baptized.

Instead of me rambling on what we did, here are pictures that capture most of what our Christmas holiday looked like.

The kids with their string in hand. A tradition started by Adam's family when they were little boys. They each have their own color of string and they have to follow it from the Christmas tree (where it's tied on to) to wherever their gift is located. Let me tell you, it's quite the maze on Christmas morning.

Sorry about the eyes, but this captures just how excited Thatch was to get a broom just his size.

All of the cousins have worn this same Baptism outfit and each time one is baptized we have their names added to the pant leg. Lilly's the only girl so she's the only one who's got to wear the beautiful long dress that goes over this romper outfit.
