Christmas 2008 Part 2

We left Nana & Pawpaw's & headed to Gram Gram & Papa G's house. It was a busy & exciting week. All of the "Bradshaw kids" were home for Christmas for longer than 24 hours. It had been quite a few years since that had happened. We had a lot of fun along with the usual travel illness & bumps on the head. We got there on Sat. night & by Sunday afternoon Cole had pink eye & a nice size knot on his forehead. Gotta love traveling....

They just couldn't be serious for a nice photo. Not even for a couple of seconds!

Gram Gram reading to ALL of her grandkids!

Cole's awesome photography take 1.

Cole's awesome photography take 2.
He has such a gift with the camera!

Aunt Cristina, Uncle Daniel, & Ben got Savannah this neat tent for her birthday. Doesn't Papa G look good in pink!

He used to be wrapped around my little finger....

Gram Gram took her turn in the tent too!

All of the grandkids riding on Papa G's back.
Cristina's face says it all - we were afraid that they would break his back!

And nobody even fell off!

Cole's awesome photography take 3. This is Cole's favorite Christmas toy at Gram Gram's house. It plays "Jingle Bells".

Santa Claus came to town!

Santa brought Cole a firetruck & a full fireman's suit.
Santa brought Savannah an easel with all of the art supplies she could think of and a Minnie Mouse dress.

Santa brought Ben a kitchen.

Check out the fireman!

Definately the cutest Minnie Mouse I have ever seen!

Cousins sharing a moment with Gram Gram's old fashioned sugar cookies. Yummy!

Artists hard at work.
"I can spell my name!"
These are the letters that came with one of Cole's Christmas gifts.
We had such a nice week. By the time the week came to a close, it was definately time to get the kids back home & on a schedule, but we wouldn't trade a minute of the chaos for anything.
Happy New Year!
