Then it was time to say good-bye to Gammy and take a nap. I'm so glad that she was able to join us for Christmas! The kids don't get to see her nearly often enough! It was fun for us all!
After nap, we were actually able to go outside and play for awhile! The weather was sunny and not too cold! The kids had a blast! The weather here the last couple months has either been bitterly cold or raining, so we haven't been outside much. This was a special Christmas treat! And we took a ton of pictures! Have I mentioned Momma and Daddy got a new camera for Christmas? Woohoo! It rocks! Thank you Bud and KayKay! We love our present!
Zachary, having a swingin' time!

HOW ADORABLE is this pic of Jonathan and Zachary? So sweet!
The best of our attempts to get a pic of all four on the slide--the weight was just too much for little Jonathan to hold back! Still pretty cute, I must say!
Daddy and the kiddos!
Mom gets a turn too!
After a rest on the big swing, the kids decided it was time to run, and they started playing the most hilarious game with each other! Here's how you play:
Step 1: Play peek-a-boo with your sibling around a tree. Make sure you're having enough fun that all siblings will want to come and join you!
Step 2: Once all siblings have gathered at said tree, someone shouts, "Look! Another tree!" and points at another nearby tree, as if it just grew up out of nowhere and no one has ever seen it before!
Step 3: Everyone runs to the new tree shouting, "A tree! A tree!" and gazes upon it with amazement.
Step 4: Someone looks back at the original tree and shouts, "Look! Another tree!" and everyone runs back to the first tree. Then the game begins all over again.
I swear they ran back and forth between the two trees for the longest time and each time they screamed as if they had never seen that tree before in their lives and it was the most amazing thing imaginable! It was so bizarre, yet so entertaining, to watch!
Well, this ends Christmas day, but the festivities are far from over! Stay tuned for more!
