3 French Hens...

Christmas has "OFFICIALLY" begun at the Mashburn home and I couldn't be any happier about it! Today is the day of "3 French Hens" (see below) and we have been blessed to have our house FULL of family (we love it!)
Last night we went over to my parents house (they live less than 5 miles from us) to open up our Christmas gifts. We usually do this on Christmas Eve, but my parents left today for Christmas in Kentucky (my grandmother has everyone over to here house and my parents are probably getting there as we read this together).
Here is a picture of me and my "little" sister...she's taller than me, does that count as a "little" sister? (We call her started when we were in High School together and never went away...kind of works for her!)
Here are my boys (Bailey and Nick) in front of Grammy's Christmas tree...little do they know we have another 5 gifts from Grammy hidden under our tree as well. HeeHee!
Here is the BEST gift my parents gave me...well, it is one of the biggest and best gifts they could give ME!!! It is a Keurig B-70 and it is sweet!!! I can't wait to open that bad boy up and start brewing. (We used to have one of these at the church I once worked at and it was the hit of the office...pretty cool machine!)

Today was just as cool with having my in-loves staying here with us and their English Bull Dog (check out my mother-in-love's web page at Views From the Back Porch). My brother in law and his family (Amy, Cory, Carly, & Cole) came over tonight (they are visiting from Alabama and stopped over on their way from Sanibel) to open gifts, have dinner, and play games (we are fierce competitors!). My sister-in-law and her family (Pat & Katie) are going to be here any minute from Alabama as is a great day!!!!

Praying you are all having an amazing Christmas season...
