Christmas Weekend

We spent Christmas Eve Eve with my side of the family. We opened gifts, went to eat at Lytle Land & Cattle, and saw the latest Star Wars movie. 

Will started running a fever on Christmas Eve, so Reese & I went to Betlway's candelight service and left the boys at home. 

We spent Christmas Eve & Day at the Morgan's home. We ate lots of yummy food, played Code Names, and watched a ton of football. 
Will's favorite gift was this Star Wars Lego set

Reese's favorite gift was a Barbie Dream House

It took him only 3 days to put this thing together.
