13 Strong - Williams' Christmas 2012

With 13 grandchildren, Nanny Cheree & Papa Bob try to get in as much one-on-one time as possible with each one of them.  This year Hunter enjoyed a yummy lunch at Chic-fil-A and a fun afternoon of shopping at his favorite place:  Wal-Mart  :)  He picked out a 'Cars' beanbag chair and a 'Thomas the Train' t-shirt.  (most likely 2 things mommy wouldn't have picked out for him. lol) But he was thrilled with his choices and had such a fun day with them, and that's all that matters.  :)
I saw an opportunity to spend a couple extra days with my in-laws so me, Hunter, Hudson, Peyton, & Emma rode back to Russellville with them.  It was a nice treat to be able to enjoy some one on one with these guys before the rest of the family joined us that weekend.  
It's crazy that we had to go to Russellville to enjoy any snow this year!
 Some days are just about impossible to get a smile out of him when trying to take a picture, LOL
 Though pretending to sled with baby brother will bring one out   :)
 It was actually a decent sledding hill
 I sure love & enjoy this little man, and having the excuse to act like a kid again!
 Next on the list:
A concert on the dining room table of course
Watching these two cousins enjoy each other is one of my favorite parts of family get togethers
 But it's not just Hunter & Easton that enjoy each other... all 13 share such wonderful bonds.  Peyton is such a little momma and a great help with the babies.
The next day they were back at it again - although with a little less snow...
But enough to scrape up a snowman
Daddy finally got to try it out before it all melted!
Hudson was content snuggling inside with mommy
 What are you all looking at??
Oh just a beautiful little deer grazing through the front yard as the sun was setting...  I hope there is a day when I once again am able to look out my window and watch deer graze through my backyard. 
Where there is family, there is LOVE.
Oh how I love these brothers
Time For Presents!
The kids drew names & the adults played 'Dirty Santa'
I think everyone is happy with their gifts!
 Especially this pretty lady with her surprise tickets to see her man - George Strait - live in concert!
Merry Christmas from the best THIRTEEN I know!
Papa gave Hunter a Penny Jar to take home & collect pennies in... he was just a little excited over it.  :)

When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 
Matthew 2:10-11
