Christmas #1 - Byford

This past weekend was jammed packed with 2 family Christmas'.... plus an ER visit for Hadlea that we weren't counting on! Boo! We will get to that on the next post!
On Saturday, my mom's side of the family got together at my mom and dad's in Medford. We ate ALOT of food, opened presents, played, and made ornaments. We had so much fun! The kids were hilarious, and Hadlea LOVED playing with her cousins! Meet the Byford / Kilian / Huskey / Caffey / Zimmerman family! :)

Love the back of the pjs!
And then all of the sudden... we thought we heard some bells... like maybe from Santa's sleigh! Could it be?! Anna is explaining to Hadlea! :)
And guess who walked in!
Someone was a little unsure! :)

Jake and Santa!
Doesn't Jake look amazing after his surgery!? This was the first time we had seen him since having his splint off. I could have cried tears of pure joy! He looked amazing! There is still alot of swelling, but it will look perfect once it is gone. And he is happy with it... which is all that matters!

Ornament competition between Amanda and I! I smoked her! Ha! :)
The boys playing football outside!
We had THE best day! I just wished we all lived closer and could get together more often! I look up to my cousin Michele more than she will ever know! She is one of the most caring people I have ever met and always gives the best advice! I know I can always count on her! And Hadlea can always count on everyone to give the best gifts! :)
After everyone left, we made it to church that evening and then waited for Hadlea's best friend Ady to come over! I will post more about their visit tomorrow... She had obviously missed her and about smothered her with hugs and kisses! :)
