Meme and PawPaw bought all the grandboys, well except for Eli because he is a little too small, an electric scooter for Christmas. So much fun! It's great to watch 6 of them ride around our neighborhood on them! Like a motorcycle pack!

What did Santa leave Sam?

I think Santa has lost his mind bringing a drum set!

Nashville Christmas Vacation

Each year, for as long as I can remember, I have taken a trip to Nashville around Christmas. Of course, I think Nashville is great anytime of the year, but there is no time better than the holiday season, for sure. We always stay at the Opryland Hotel, and since the flood devastated the hotel this past spring, we were not sure we would be able to take our annual trek. Thank goodness, the hotel renovated and reopened in November, just in time for our getaway. The boys had such an awesome time, as there are all sorts of activities and things to do geared just for them! Even better, Nashville had gotten a big snow the Sunday before we arrived on Monday, so we got to play in the snow as well! The next few posts are about our great time we had! Can't wait for next year!

Can they get any sweeter!?

It amazes me how much he has grown...too fast.

Eli and the conductor of the train that they rode about 10 times!

The boys were tickled over the icicles!
