Slaughter Christmas 2009, in the books...

So many Christmas pictures. I considered breaking up the posts so I could do a few pictures here and a few there. But then decided I should just cull them down (which was so hard) and put them all in one big post. We travelled to Grandpa's on December 22nd and stayed until Christmas Eve. We have a new camera that I haven't really learned to use yet. Matt took the kids out on a very informal photo shoot on Grandpa's farm. (In case you're wondering, yes, Jeb is almost always in this hat. It is a must have for him.)

Pretty Estella

Belle and Jeb walking beside old chicken house.

Love these of Belle...

Little farm girl.

Drusy in the hay shed.

Jeb loves stealing Grandpa's cane.

Pawpaw with my and my little brother's little ones.

We came home Christmas Eve, and during the night, this happened!!

We got the idea of a wrapping paper 'break-through' from our friend Jill. SO fun. Except Belle wiped out, and Dru kept right on going.

Estella in her new wig (that she's been BEGGING for). And for the rest of the day, we confused her with her sister.

After opening gifts from Santa at home, we drove (very slowly and carefully in the snow) to Gigi and G-Pops' house. Here are Lynlee, Belle, and Belle.... I mean, Dru, in front of Gigi's tree.

A very early morning baby.

After opening presents, the boys took the little ones sledding! Lynlee, E Dru, and Jeb. It was all fun and games until they crashed.

And here's a great one of Estella wiping out. Poor thing.

What a wonderful daddy.

Pretty pretty Belle in the snow.

Uncle Pat and Ms. Lynlee.

It really was a wonderful Slaughter Christmas. Thank you, Lord for all the undeserved blessings you have given to me. I really do stand amazed. And thank you for a happy, beautiful Christmas.
