Christmas

Finally, right?  Our chaotic December led up to our best Christmas ever.  We took an extra special trip to Pennsylvania and Delaware to be with the Hornes and the Sookhoos for Christmas.  We are so lucky that my sister, Kate, and her family live so close to Eric's parents so we can see them all at once.  Meg flew out with us to be with Kate and Steve for Christmas, so we even had a true "Shaver" with us.

Christmas morning we went over to Eric's sister's house since Santa had made his delivery there ;)  Really, we all just wanted to see brand new baby Kennedy, who was born just a couple days before Christmas!  It was lots of fun to have the cousins together.

After present opening we went back to Nan and Pop's house where the Sookhoos and Meg joined us for Christmas dinner.  It was so fun to share the time with so much family.

Shaver girls!

Aside from Disney on Ice, the rest of our trip was full of your basic, everyday shenanigans:

Cupcakes for breakfast (and in your eye)

Fires in the backyard

Surfing the 'net

We had a great trip and can't believe how fast it came and went!  Thanks to the Hornes, Moyers, and Sookhoos for being amazing hosts and making us feel right at home.
