Christmas with GG

This past weekend we celebrated Christmas with GG, Ben's grandmother. To Ben she has always been "Granny," but to Mary Hyatt and her other great grandchildren she is known as GG (Great Granny).

We all met and had a nice lunch at Valley Hill Country Club in Huntsville. This was MH's first time to meet her Aunt Sissy and Uncle Jeff, but sadly I did not get a picture of her with them, but I did get one of her with Lovie and Grandaddy.

After lunch, we headed to GG's house to open presents.  MH enjoyed getting some lovin' from her new soon-to-be Aunt Courtney!

And of course she loved playing with Uncle Jack and Aunt Sally..

It was fun to watch Mary Hyatt "open" her presents.  Well, she didn't actually open them. I had to help, but her eyes did get really big and she did reach for and grab her toys once she realized what was under all of the paper.  Of course, they all went straight to her mouth. It was a fun day and we enjoyed starting off our Christmas festivities with GG and the rest of the family!

The next day, Ben, MH, and I went to church and when we got home we spent the afternoon addressing Christmas cards, wrapping presents, and watching Home Alone.  I just love this time of year.

That evening we went to the candlelight service at our church.  It was absolutely wonderful.  There were over 300 people in the choir singing Christmas carols and at the end everyone in the choir and congregation lit and held candles while singing "Silent Night."  It was beautiful and such a great way to start off the week before Christmas!
