My favorite Christmas album always has been and always will be Amy Grant's Tender Tennessee Christmas. I have been listening to this song each Christmas for as long as I can remember. I was so excited when we moved to Tennessee and I realized I would have my own Tender Tennessee Christmas. And thanks to my sister Kashann and her family who made the 12 hour drive from Buffalo, NY to spend Christmas with us, it was everything we hoped our first Christmas in Tennessee would be.
Laura of course was too young to appreciate the magic of presents and so it was fun to have excited kids around on Christmas. We had a slumber party upstairs on Christmas Eve with sleeping bags on the floor. At 2:30 am, everyone woke up thinking it was morning already and I had to stumble downstairs to find a clock and then tell everyone to go back to sleep- Santa hadn't come yet.
We spent Christmas day eating a delicious Turkey dinner, thanks to my sister Kashann (you would think that after driving 12 hours to someone else's house you wouldn't have to do the cooking, too) and making dolls with my neices. What better way to spend Christmas than doing my two favorite things: eating and crafting.
Other highlights include playing the wii, (Peter is still mad I beat him and insists his side of the mat was broken) searching for Brent's dream house, listening to Caroline entertain us with her made up songs, and having 3 neices who took care of my baby all weekend.
Thanks, Casper family, for sharing our Tender Tennessee Christmas with us! We miss you and are hoping that Brent's dream house will be built somewhere close to Nashville.
