We started our Christmas celebration on Christmas Eve with lunch at Randy's parents house. We had our "traditional" shrimp and crab legs and it was as delicious as always. There was a house full with all the kids and their kids there that day.
Later that same evening we went next door to Randy's Mamaw's house for her annual Christmas gathering. There we continued to stuff our faces with more yummy food. After all who can pass on homemade chicken n dumplins. :) After dinner we always gather round for our "Dirty Santa" gift exchange. Always lots of fun!!
We spent Christmas Day at my sister's house with all of my family. We again ate to much and opened more gifts. My sister and brother had a turkey cook off. Brad fried his turkey and Michaela baked hers. Michaela won!! However, I must give Brad his props. His was pretty tasty also.
Gavin seemed to enjoy his time on the swing with his cousin Hannah the most. When they weren't playing she was laying down with him putting him to sleep. She was an awesome help to me and great babysitter. To bad for me that she lives so far away.
Finally, on the 26th we had our Christmas lunch with Randy's Granny. She served us her usual meal of gumbo and fried fish. We enjoyed once again. I didn't manage to get any pictures this day due to our car being pack and ready to travel back to Laredo. The camera was somewhere lost in the trunk. So here is the one photo I managed to capture Christmas day with Granny.
