Christmas Catch up

Well the Griswold Family Christmas has come to its conclusion!!
We spent 5 days in SSI with a house FULL. And when I say full I mean FULL! We had anywhere from 6-20 people in and out at all times.. and this also included an 11 month old and 3 dogs.

Here's a rundown... we left our house around lunchtime on Christmas to head down and made it there by dinnertime. Around 8 we started getting texts from everyone that our hometown was getting a White Christmas! First time in over a 100 years and we MISSED IT! But our 5 day shindig made up for it.. it will probably be one of the most memorable Christmases ever!
We joked that the only thing missing was the camper in the driveway.

We took a family portrait while we were all together!
Our Aunt Karla, Me, & Mal
Daddy and Me
(check out the new vest ;) I'm pumped about it!)

All the girls before dinner the last night:
Mal, Karla, Mama, Mama Jeri, Me
Our girls: Mal, Mama, Mama Jeri, Me
Me and Baby Cooper!! My new cousin!!
This was our first time getting to see them because my Uncle lives out in Colorado and they never get to come home! Cooper is a BUSY little boy.. and into everything! But ALWAYS with a smile on his face.. I don't think we've ever seen such a happy little baby!
The day before we left we went around Brunswick to take some pictures.. if you've noticed the new header it was taken on this beautiful house's porch:
My grandmother's friend owns this house.. and I basically want to move into it TOMORROW. It's gorgeous.. if you're interested it's for sale. I can hook you up! (As long as you sell it to me when I finish Pharmacy school.. and occasionally invite me over to bask in it's beauty)

And last, but not least, I would like to wish my grandpa Dewey a Happy Happy Birthday today!!!
I love you D!!

P.S. I can't wait to get caught back up on blogger reading everyone's posts!! I've missed keeping up with everyone! :)
