Catching up....

Yes...Santa did come to see us this year...I am just behind on telling you all about it. Hudson had an amazing first Christmas and we enjoyed our first Christmas with him and our second married Christmas. We started off the festivities celebrating with my moms side of the family at my aunt and uncle's cabin. We always enjoy Christmas with all the cousins (we missed the ones that live too far away to come). We usually have a big meal and then play some "dirty Santa" which you can imagine can get pretty dirty especially with the men in the family. They usually plot together to get what they all want and then trade and it gets to be pretty amusing. This year the hot item was some sort of hand drill and reed diffusers. We had lots of fun and enjoyed getting to spend time with all the "Nashville" Family. Here is a picture of Hudson opening his present from GiGi at family Christmas.

Next, we headed to Missouri and spend the first half of the week with Todds family. We enjoyed getting to see friends and spend time with Granmomma and Grandaddy Lewis and Byron and Jennifer. We enjoyed some last minute shopping and took Hudson to visit Santa and of course lots of Todds moms wonderful cooking. I also got to visit with all my Castlio girls for lunch on Tuesday so that was a nice ending to our visit. We did Christmas with them on Tuesday night before leaving on Wednesday.

Hudson with his new Glow Worm. He really loves to look at it.

Baby presents for Jennifer and Byron:) You guessed it...there is going to be another Lewis baby in the family Next Christmas. She is due the middle of July and we are so so excited for them. Todds parents are beside themselves now that they are going to have a second grandchild. God has truly blessed us and we are so thankful.

Hudson was so sweet sleeping in front of all the presents and the tree.
