The holidays aren't over!

As most of you know I was away for the holidays and we just got back today. Oh boy, I had tons of mail and presents that were sent from the family here in town. We had a whole other "Christmas Day" today! My grandmother even sent over leftover turkey and all the sides, including dessert. We have such a great family, thanks so much guys. We were only able to buy one gift for our girls and they were so thankful for the other gifts they received from friends and family. I even got some from some HEORES from Here are some photos for ya'll to enjoy.
