We were happy that the Cartee family
were able to all be together in
Tuscaloosa to celebrate Christmas last week.
As I was downloading the
pictures from the day I
was excited to see we got 1
family picture from
the Christmas season.
I soon remembered taking a family picture
at that same spot 5 years ago!
WOW~ Who would have thought our little
family of 3 would double in 5 short years?!
We had a wonderful day
spending time with family!
Roman always loves going to Reid and Ellis’s
house and having boys and boy toys to play with!
Cooper and Roman
Jared wrestled with Reid for a while.
The girls had a great time playing
with Walker and Reid.
Everyone had their turn holding Lottie!
Deidre and Lottie
Allison and Lottie
We opened up gifts.
The kids(and Gue) pretended
to go to sleep so they
could wake up and open the
gifts like Christmas morning!
Roman didn’t really play along.
The kids waiting to open gifts!
Nixon picked out Reid a boy
LaLa Loopsey just for him!
Nixon reading her new book.
Jared is becoming a pro at getting
toys out of their packaging!
Nixon and Isla LOVE their
dolls Gue and Pop got them!
Lottie and her new blanket!
Roman hasn’t stopped
Isla giving Maw-Maw some lovin’ for her gift!
Maw-Maw bought Lottie her 1st bible.
The girls helped Maw-Maw open her gift.
They also helped Gue…
Pop was so surprised and excited
about his golf gloves from the girls!
(we get him the same gift every year)
It is such a blessing when
everyone is able to get together
at the same time. I am very happy
it worked out even if it was only for the day.
I remembered I had the
picture below of Maw-Maw,
Gue, Jared, and Nixon.
So we tried to recreate it with Lottie!
Hopefully in 2016 we will be able
to recreate these pictures again!
(but not by doubling our family size!)
