Christmas at the Ranch

We spent Christmas eve night and Christmas morning at Forrest's parent's new place. They were determined to get moved in in time and with hard work they were able to get all of their things moved in the day before Christmas Eve. Phew! Cuttin it close! Anyways, we drove in and helped them unpack then that night we all curled up on the couch by the fire, watched a movie, and drank hot chocolate. The cozy night ended with Forrest's parents dancing in the living room to an old was so sweet. I know they really needed that time to relax after all of the moving. Then the next day, we did some more things around the house until Amberly and the fam could make it over around lunch. We had some chili and tamales then went in to the living room to open gifts. Some of the highlights of the gifts were: Forrest's new Aggie boots, his parents new rocking chairs, Amberly & Aaron's new popcorn machine, and the last gift the boys opened, their new John Deer tractor. We spent some time outside watching them ride around on it and take treats out to feed the longhorns. It was so cute watching them act like country boys! Before going to bed, we all sat by the fireplace and Lala (Cheri) read some new books to the boys. Then the adults stayed up and played games.

Overall Forrest and I had a great Christmas. Hope everyone else has enjoyed their holidays as well!
