Christmas in Marion 2013

We traveled to Marion the day after Christmas to see my family.  Every year, my mom cooks a non-traditional meal and we open gifts.  My uncle and his family weren't able to join us this year, but my 88 year old grandmother was there!

 A Christmas Favorite since I was a child…. yum!!!! Eli kept saying "one more."

 My grandmother (88) is still the life of the party! :)

 A TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE picture of me - but hey - its the only one I have.  Pitiful. 
Nan's grand babies actually posed for a picture this year without tears. Whoa. 

 The year of the Ninja Turtle…. SO MUCH NINJA TURTLE!! :)
 Eli wanted to open every toy and play before moving on to the next present.  

 I found my grandfather's drivers license from the 1950's and framed it with his picture for my grandmother.  When she opened it, she teared up. Its honestly the first time in 33 years I have seen her tear up.  Let's just say - she loved it!

 Kevin gave mom a beautiful Komen Foundation charm for her Pandora bracelet. 
 Daddy and his boys!
 Ashton (16) and Hunter (13)
Eli liked wearing my new scarfs on his head!

We had a fantastic Christmas…complete with Eli being the life of the party after all the presents were open.  He had us all laughing.
