christmas 2011 take 2

the second part of our Christmas, we spent in groom with rhett's family. it started with a trip to the dr. for beckham that resulted in a postitive strep test. so, we got on antibiotics, got some for court (since he always catches it) and headed to groom. we got to spend a whole week in groom playing with cousins, playing in the snow, building a HUGE snowman, celebrating the birth of jesus, opening new toys, cooking, baking, watching movies, snuggling, playing some more, eating lots of yummy food, etc. this was the first time since we've had kids that we were able to spend christmas in groom with the whole family! fun!!

sat - nancy's side of the family came over for food, fun, and presents! i think we had over 30 people there!
hadley & court both had reindeer food for santa's reindeer. they decided that the wagon would be the perfect place to put it!

oh - and we brought this little christmas present home with us.....
a gentle giant - we think dodger is a bloodhound or coonhound - a little over a year old, with no home. so we gave him one - just couldn't turn this sweet little face away.... :)
