An Allison/Patterson/Dale Christmas

********For anyone interested...GRANDPARENTS...I have posted several Christmas posts...so keep reading!!!*******



We started out our Christmas Eve with SNOW...in Dallas...Texas. You read that right...us Texans got us a white Christmas this year. It was very fun and exciting watching the snow fall and stick on such a fabulous holiday! We spent our Christmas Even night with my family at The Dale House. We ate, drank, and opened LOTS of presents. It was a great time. We were supposed to get up and head to Arkansas on Christmas day, but since the weather in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas decided to freeze...we had to postpone our trip a day. So, we ended up spending Christmas day with my family also. Here are some pictures from our Allison/Patterson/Dale Christmas.

It's showtime!

US and The Dales gave Papaw a new wheel barrow for Christmas



I gave my mom a scrapbook of our Paris trip for Christmas. I have been so excited to give it to her that I could hardly keep it quiet. I think it was a big hit!!!






Our BEST family tradition is to do "The 12 Days of Christmas" Allison style every year. This year, all the kids got their own day. We always have the best time seeing what everyone will come up with.
