A Texas Christmas!

I hope you and yours had a fabulous Christmas. We sure did! We buck tradition and open gifts on Christmas Eve with my side of the family. It's always funny when people start opening gifts and there is a theme. Take Christmas 4 years ago as an example....mom and dad gave me Rookie. I was shocked and so excited! I'm pretty sure I even cried....I know, I'm pathetic. I had to get Rookie first because all of my other gifts pertained to that gift. Dog collar from Taylor, dog bowl from Kristen, etc, etc. This year, I watched as each person opened their gifts and instead of a theme for each person, I decided we had a "general" theme for Christmas, and that was total and complete "Texas Christmas". I'm sure the thought of how all of these gifts would come together never entered my parent's minds, but we literally laughed with each new Texas treasure. Yee-haw!

To start things off, Dad and Taylor both got knives. I know you're heartbroken that there is no picture....

Brother got a guitar...

Kristen got boots...

Dad got a rifle...

Taylor got a .22LR...

Nana and Papa got Longhorn stockings...

And a partridge in a pear tree... Santa showed up for the party!

Jake, guarding the goods...

Christmas 2008!
