Christmas in Ohio

 We spent the weekend before Christmas in Ohio. Checking out Bluffton where will we be moving in 3 short weeks, and having our annual family Christmas at Aunt Krista's house.

The littlest cousins.
Who would barely sit still for a picture. 
Tess helped get dinner ready

They all played a little
And then it was present time

It was way too exciting for some.
The Lumberjack, er, Bobby is his new hand knit hat.
Big Trav opening his almost sold out tickets to see Jerry Seinfeld
 And the little girls checking out the music video for Frozen
Followed by singing
 And dancing, of course.
Ready to be closer to home so these visits won't be such a trek.

The Stockings Were Hung

My lovely new mantel

When we bought the house, we were mantel-less

But thanks to my husband's mad carpentry skills

And the removal of the gas logs
We now have a wood burning fireplace

With a mantel that looked like this in October

But is now dressed up for Christmas
