I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Today we travelled to Marion to begin our visit with family. Tonight we celebrated Christmas with my family at my sister's house. We enjoyed a yummy fajita dinner with the best salsa ever (thanks to Brad). Afterwards, we went to a short service at my parents church and then returned to my sister's. We started out singing some songs, including 12 Days of Christmas - everyone had a day. This was very much out of the norm for my family, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. And then we opened presents. Nathan's favorite present was an Air Hog Helicopter from his Mimi and Papa (aka Chicken Leg) and Natalie received a Nintendo DS game. She doesn't have the game system yet - she is saving her money and should be able to buy it soon. Tim and I both were blessed with some wonderful gifts. Tim got dress socks, cologne, Razorback coasters and a new travel bag. I got a crock-pot with a timer, some soft pajamas and bath gel. We had a nice visit with everyone and enjoyed meeting my niece's boyfriend, a sweet guy! So, tomorrow is Christmas Day and we will spend it with Tim's parents and his brother's family.
