While we were in Florida we had Christmas at Memaw and Mister's house. The kids were so amazed at all the presents under the tree that they wanted to open them the night we got there, but I put a stop to that. I told them that it was too late, and I was too tired. So, we made plans to have Christmas the next night when Aunt Manna could come over too. So after crab legs, shrimp alfredo, salad, and Red Lobster biscuits for supper, we finally headed to the living room for the kids to do Christmas.
They had gifts from Memaw and Mister, all of their aunts and uncles, and a few from the bigger Varnum get together from great aunts. The highlight of the night for Ruth was her Belle dress from Aunt Joan. Britt's favorite gift was his Hess helicopter from Memaw and Mister. That thing has flown all over the house. The kids have a ton of fun playing with their cousins and with all the new toys. It's been a good two weeks.
