Christmas with the Simmons'

We had our annual family gathering with my dad's side of the family the day after Christmas. So, we packed up the car and headed down to Roanoke, to Mee Maw and C.O.'s house (which happens to be next door to my parents' house).

Oliver enjoyed his time in Pawpaw's arms. (And lots of other arms as well)

We had a White Elephant gift exchange. Nathaniel opened a knife set (which dad ended up with). And he ended up with lottery tickets (which he stole from ME)!

After the adults did the gift exchange, all the little kids got to open lots of presents.

The rest of the time was spent eating food and enjoying one another.

The Best of Friends

Most of the grandkids and great grandkids.

Ella and Oliver were born 5 days apart. I think they enjoyed each other's company despite the fact that they slept through most of the night.
