Christmas Pictures

We hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Ours was busy as usual! Tammy's dad come into town Saturday night, we went to church Sunday morning, ER visit for Ian Sunday afternoon for an ear infection, Joe's parents Sunday night, opened gifts Christmas morning, cooked breakfast for 14 at our house, and then Joe's grandmas for Christmas dinner! Whew...I'm tired just writing it all out! It was a great time seeing family and catching up with relatives we had not seen in quite a while. Tammy's dad left today to go back to the great state of Texas to rest!
Ian had a very Thomas Christmas! He recieved Thomas puzzles, trains, a tent, towel, sweatshirt, and aqua doodle! And there were a few books, dvds, and "Cars" items as well!
Abbie Grace recieved a kitty cat towel, books, The Little Mermaid, magic cube, tabbie, and baby dolls.
Tammy has to go back to work tomorrow so the kids go back to daycare after 2 weeks off...those ladies are going to wonder what happened to the Becker kids! AG has not been sat down for 2 weeks!

Busy Busy Busy

Wow...have we been busy! I'm sure you all have been too though! Ian, Abbie Grace, and Tammy just got back from SC. We went down for Michael's graduation from Winthrop (YAY!), then to Charleston, and then to Florence. Grammy spoiled the kids like only grandma's can! And Ian's uncles played with him and gave him lots of their cars that they played with as little boys. He loved it! We had the big family Christmas party at Tammy's aunts. It was so great to see all of the family that we don't get to see living away from SC. Then on Wednesday we went to Florence to see Angela (Tammy's best friend from college). Her little girl, Katie, and Ian had a ball playing together. Then we had to get back in the car for the drive home...ugh! What should have been a 5.5 hour trip took 7.5 hours:) We stopped at a rest stop about 45 minutes from home for Abbie Grace to eat and watched the traffic come to a standstill! Oh well...we love DC traffic! We are glad to be home. Ian paced in the garage waiting for Joe to arrive and was so excited to see him.

Both kids slept in this morning. In fact, AG is still sleeping at 8:30! She and Ian both slept with me the whole week we were gone so it will take some adjusting for her. Ian was glad to have the whole bed back to himself and was sleeping sideways when I went and checked on him this morning. Whew...I may need to go to the chiropractor after sleeping with him for a week!

We wish you all a Merry Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour!
