We drove up to Memphis this year for Thanksgiving, and we also had an early Christmas celebration while we were there since we wouldn't be seeing the Bellican Family again until after the start of the new year. It was an action-packed weekend, but we sure had fun! It was so nice just to get out of our daily routine. We drove in late Wednesday night, and we got busy with all the Thanksgiving festivities (food!), so we didn't take too many pictures! (oops!)

Saturday morning had our early Christmas celebration--the kids LOVED it!
The two bigger boys received shopping carts from Santa--aren't they adorable?!?
Mandy and I took a twin picture--we're getting better about remembering...Now we just gotta remember to get a sister pic with all 3 of us!
Papa took the boys out for a wagon ride--it was a beautiful day!
Later the bigger boys had fun spinning around in the desk chair.
Yep, Papa is the instigator!
And the really big boys had fun playing video games!
Lucas loved it too--He just didn't get too many opportunities to play without Anthony shouting, "Lucas! No!"
our "Christmas" dinner--always delicious
cannot resist that smile!
And I just had to throw in this short video clip of Lucas jamming out to a little play guitar because I think it is hilarious! I love how he gets his whole body going, just flailing those arms! And then as soon as the music stops, he's crawling away like, "okay, what's next?" So cute!
Thanks for making it a really special time for us, Mom. You always put so much thought into it, and I know these boys just have a ball at your house! Wish we could come over more often--if only it weren't a 7 hour drive..... :(
