Deffenbaugh Christmas

As the kids finished up their Christmas parties at school on Friday, we loaded the van (literally, to the top!) and headed to Bartlesville, OK to celebrate Christmas with the Deffenbaugh’s!!

Adventure #1 – while hitting Oklahoma City during rush hour and having to re-route (poor planning!) we realized that Caroline had had a bit too much juice and had wet through EVERYTHING — shirt, pants, car seat — so proceeded to drive the rest of the trip next-to-naked!

Though it was 70 when we left Dallas, we enjoyed a weekend of 6-20 degree temps in Oklahoma.  It’s not that we weren’t warned, but we were still totally unprepared and quite cold most of the weekend!!  We may have had cold toes, but warm hearts and lots of laughs catching up with the cousins!  The kids got lots of great gifts and had a good time playing.  Too many pictures to post here, so look (eventually) for an album of Deffenbaugh Christmas Pics.

One highlight was that the kids wrote books for their grandparents and read them aloud to everyone.  Even Peyton, our kindergartener did an amazing job!!  The books were about some of their favorite things with pictures they personally illustrated!

The little ones kept interrupting Peyton’s reading…but she didn’t appear irritated or anything, do you think?!?!?

While we loved the time with our family, I must say that we are happy to be back in Dallas enjoying the sunshine, 50+ degree temps, and preparing for Christmas Day!!
