By Thursday, Nick was starting to feel a little better, so we went to Lumberton for a few nights so that we could celebrate Christmas with his family.
And Alex, well he was more interested in licking the icing off his fingers!
Friday night, Nick's brother & his family came over for our Christmas celebration.
First we opened presents (priorities guys!!)
And after that, we ate dinner (which was a giant pot of gumbo that I made) and then played cards (or 'shuffle' as Alex calls it!) It was fun night (even though Nick won the game & beat me by one measly point. I'm just a little competitive, lol, just a little!)
Here are a few family pictures of the Stricklands...
Nick, Eddie, Pat & Wayne (just missing Trinia)
Grant, Tracey, Jules & Wayne
And Us (the next morning before we left because we didn't get a picture that night)
