5 Christmases :)

We started out our Christmas on Tuesday night with Nathan's mom's side of the family up at Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, MO....for those of you who haven't been, you MUST go! Its beautiful! We had so much fun even though we only got to go for 2 days! Kenny and Glinda were kind enough to invite Glinda's ENTIRE side of the family up for 3 days/2 nights at Big Cedar. They have a time share up there and thought it would be nice to do something a little different this year. It was amazing! I can't wait to go back! I have to say I do have great in-laws!

The deer they used for the kiddos stockings! They forgot the real stockings so everyone walked away with a new pair of socks! LOL! :)

Before we went home we decided to run up to Springfield and go to PFI....its a store similar to Cavender's and Nathan LOVES it! They don't have one around here so we have to make special trips.

We then headed to.....dun-da-da-da....BASS PRO!!! This is Nate's all time favorite store and the closest one is Tulsa....he loves it! He was a happy boy!

Alligator in Bass Pro....UGH

As you walk in the door..
On Christmas Eve night, we headed over to K & G's to have Christmas with them as just our small family. It was really fun! I got a lot of fun stuff (including the rest of my Gail Pitman dishes) from them. They are good in-laws and spoil us kids WAAAYYYY too much!
