Merry Christmas to Me!!

I was SUPER surprised about my gift from Al this year! I had wanted a new tv stand for our living room, but I was not expecting this! Al had Bobby Nixon make the cabinets to match our kitchen cabinets and another piece of furniture we have; then he went to B'ham on Christmas Eve to get the granite on top so it would match our countertops! Needless to say, I LOVE it!!! Now he says we just need a bigger tv to sit on it!! :)

Christmas Eve w/ the Grigsby's

On Christmas Eve we always get together with my mom's side of the family. This year we went to my Uncle Jesse's house for dinner and Bingo. We had so much fun! Their house is like a museum, they have so many unique items! We even made cotton candy!!

**Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!!**
Poor Al has been sick the whole time, but he was a good sport throughout the Holiday!
