Christmas (pre) Eve at Grandpa Jones'

The Saturday before Christmas we drove out to Grandpa Jones' house for dinner, nativity and gift exchanging. This year the grandkids each wrote a letter to Grandpa about a favorite memory or experience with Grandpa or Grandma. Each kid read their letter out loud. It was a great moment to see how their Grandparents have touched there lives.

The grandkids also did a gift exhange with some of Grandma's old Christmas decorations. Here is what everyone ended up with: (next year Rachel will have to make sure and get the singing Christmas tree!) Grandpa Jones and Meredith:
