Christmas Day With The Fam

My mom has an addiction.  To what you say?  Large plastic cups.  She has one that she got from the hospital when Bethany was born, that she will fill with ice and tea and haul around everywhere.  (Yes the cup is almost 20 years old, and yes the picture is coming off the front)  I don't even think that the hospital still has that same name.  When I saw that cup in TSC, I couldn't resist.  Do ya'll think it is big enough?
We got Bethany a GPS.  Poor child got Mom's sense of direction.  Right before Christmas she called us and asked us how to get to church from Concord Mills.  Landon got off of the phone and said, "That is IT.  I am buying Bethany a GPS.  Good lord I can't have her getting lost in Boone next year!"  
Here we have a shot of the buddies doing what they do best.... comparing their gifts from Shaun and Brandy.   They love playing with Cars minis, the new town stops and of course the Banshees.  (yes Santa brought two Banshee's, he knew we couldn't stand the fighting over one)
I would like to point out Graham.  Mister quiet until he opened our gift.  He was so excited, I didn't have the camera ready.  We gave him Nerf Armor for his DS Lite.  He opened it and yelled out," YEEEESSSS! "  And smacked his fist on the floor to emphasize his happiness.  It was SO FUNNY, and so Shaun, lol.
