Christmas 2011

It was a lovely Christmas weekend! It is so special to be at home with everyone. We baked and cooked all weekend and celebrated Christ's birth! What a wonderful season.

I got to see my sweet grandmother and aunt!
Friday night we all drove to Floyd, VA to eat at a yummy restaurant with family and to celebrate Aunt Diane's birthday.
Then we walked to a country store where we danced the night away.
The quaint lil country store with good bluegrass music.
Merry Christmas Eve with that Ginna girl.
It was the most wonderful Christmas at home with my sisters!
