Our Week Long Christmas Extravaganza!!!

I haven't blogged in a while. I think I am recovering from our trip! Just kidding!
We had a wonderful week of celebrating with family and friends. On Christmas eve, we went to our church for a service. Afterwards Josh took us to the Jackson Fair Grounds to see the Christmas light display. We all loved it. When we got home, we realized the roads were too icy to go down to Ohio that night, as we had originally planned, so we decided to do our family Christmas that night. We all opened presents and the girls went to bed, while we finished loading up for our trip to Van Wert.
We arrived Christmas morning at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We saved the girls Christmas stockings for down there on Christmas morning. After a few days with Josh's side of the family, we drove to Indy to be with my side of the family at my sister and brother-in-laws new house! It was a great time.
After a couple days there we left and went back to Van Wert, OH to see the rest of Josh's family, and finally made it back New Year's Eve just in time to ring in the New year with the Troyers and the Lokers. We had a great time!
I didn't take that many pictures. What a surprise, as usually that's all I do! Here are a few though:

Two peas in a pod as well! :)

Our niece Cora is going to be a good Mommy some day. She loved taking care of the littler ones. :)
