A little more Christmas FUN!

 On Sunday night, Shane's sister and her family came over to celebrate Christmas with us. We usually get together on Christmas day, but because they had other obligations, we had to wait until Sunday to celebrate.
 Sophie absolutely ADORES her cousin, Makayla, and they always have so much fun together!!
They are just two peas in a pod!
It won't be long before my sweet niece, Kaitlyn (who turns ONE next week) will be joining in on all their girly mischief fun too!
We all enjoyed brownies and ice cream sundaes for dessert and then had fun exchanging gifts.
Sallie gave Hudson a super hero craft kit, and before long we had a house full of little super hero's running around!
Monday morning, we took our crew to the YMCA pool to swim. 
My kids LOVE the water and a winter swim is always a welcomed treat!!
And speaking of treats...a quick stop by Dunkin' Donut on the way to the pool was a fun way to start our day.
 The kids had an absolute BLAST splashing, jumping, swimming, and diving at the pool! 
They would have stayed ALL day long if they could, but we had special dinner plans with our wonderful friend, Charlotte.
Since Charlotte is home from college on Christmas break, we are trying to soak up as much time with her as we can.
We all went out to dinner at the Olive Garden and then came back to our house to exchange Christmas gifts.
Charlotte blessed the kids with some AWESOME Clemson memorabilia. 
She is definitely turning them into die hard fans;) 
Now whenever my kids see the colors orange or purple...they immediately think...CLEMSON!
I LOVE it!
