houston christmas

This year was Houston's turn for Christmas.  We arrived Sat. just in time for
the Happy Birthday Jesus party.  It was complete with a play, lunch and party favors.

Emerson as "Mary"

That evening, the kids opened up cousin gifts and stockings from Mimi and Papa.
The adults have a white elephant gift exchange.  It's always fun.

Just ONE of Mimi's beautiful trees. 
She starts decorating for Christmas on Oct. 31st.

On Christmas Eve, we went to church and then came home to 
prepare for the 19th annual Christmas Eve Bain party!!
Between 75-100 people come to this party every year.
It is so fun to see everyone there and catch up.

Liz - Bo's sister has been through a lot this year.  
She is an amazing person.  Truly.

Mimi and Ally

Hunter and "Yea Yea"- Lacy is Bo's oldest sister.

Christmas morning came EARLY after the party,
clean up and set up for the kids.
Hunter was the only one that slept in!
Some of his loot.

The girls waiting to come down the stairs.

Abby was excited to get McKenna.  
It's what she asked Santa for!

Ally is a NUT.  Love this girl.

Anna Jane is just precious.  Abby adores her
and fell right to sleep with her on Christmas Day.

Abby and her dolls.  Happy girl.

Merry Christmas!  These are just a few of the many pictures from a fun weekend in
Houston.  The kids loved having the cousins to play with and the two big parties
that Mimi threw were incredible.  So blessed to celebrate the birth of our Savior again this year.
