Christmas Eve at Granna and PawPaws

On Christmas Eve, we went to my Parent's house in Berry for lunch and presents.   The girls had a blast opening up the presents. They got lots of things but some of the favorites were Anna Riley's cash register she has been wanting,  the doll cradle for both of them, and the Swimming Little Mermaid doll and her guitar.  Ava Kate loved her counting phone and grocery scanner,  and her musical instruments.  They also got the movie Cinderella which made Mommy really happy! :)

AR has to ride the 4wheeler and golfcart if we are in Berry!

The girls' had so much fun opening their presnets. Anna Riley
got her cash register she wanted so bad! 
After the girls had naps, we got ready to we could head straight to the Christmas Eve service at our church in Tuscaloosa.  That is always my favorite service for so many reasons.  It brings tears to my eyes each year.

Earnest Christmas

We always have our extended Earnest family Christmas on the Saturday before Christmas.  My cousin Janet hosted it at her house in Samantha.  We have manly appetizers and desserts (my two favorites!!)  It is always so great to see my cousins and their kids.  Anna Riley had so much fun she did not want to leave. 

Granna and some of the kids playing a game.

This was the hot spot for the kids!  They all piled on the
bed and took turns playing the Wii!
