Christmas with the Cartees

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

Gabe 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 
playing with his new cars!

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...

and Pop.

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!)
