Christmas 2013 with the Riddles!

I can't lie, I'm sad Christmas is over.  All of my siblings (except for Aaron & Stacy) were able to come to Greensboro for a good chunk of the break and Aaron's siblings all live pretty close to us.  Aaron was able to take 2 weeks off work since December is the slowest time for the youth group so it was FABULOUS getting to spend so much time soaking in the family time! Have I mentioned that I love time with family?!  :)  Here are some of the pictures from our break... 
4 stockings this year...  :)
We debated whether or not Davis would demolish a real Christmas tree...
we ended up getting one & he did great with it!
But this was his own tree that he was allowed to play with (velcro ornaments).
We saw Santa at Chick-Fil-A and Davis was not a fan.
Aunt Ziza came back from El Salvador and Davis WAS a fan.  :)
We went to the Christmas lights walking trail at Grey Gables with some friends!
Yum Yum's date was a must.
Someone liked his first Yum Yum's hot dog. Probably because you barely have to chew.  :)
Aaron & I went on a Christmas date while Davis played with Nana & Pops!
Christmas Eve service at Westover
The O'Hares and Stephen  :)
Micah & Virg!
We celebrated Advent this year
and Davis put his last ornament on the top on Christmas Eve.
Christmas morning we celebrated at our house!
Don't worry, he's not bleeding!!
He was playing with his red finger paints that he got for Christmas in the bathtub.
Then we went to Nana & Pop's for the Riddle Christmas!
He was more interested in the puppies than the gifts.  :)
Christmas afternoon, we went to Grandaddy Rick & Mimi's for the O'Hare Christmas!
Davis loves the fireplace.
Playing on his new chair.
So many stockings! 
Christmas evening!
My favorite!
Siblings.  :)
Bahaha.  :)
On December 27, we got to hang out with some of Aaron & my friends from middle school (or earlier!)
So fun to think of our kids being friends one day!!
That evening we went to the Duhan Cousin Christmas at Grandmother & Pops!
Davis was LOVING having Aaron home to play with him!!  (I was too!)
Sweet boy!
Then we said bye to Micah & Virginia and Isaac & Caroline. Boo.
Another great part of the break was that Emily was in town!!!
And last but not least, we had Cousin Christmas with the Busters!  :)
Whew, so many festivities!
Merry Christmas from our family!
And the angel said to them, 'Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."  
--Luke 2:10-11
