Christmas 2016: Part 2 (Christmas in Salter Path)

On Christmas morning, our family opened gifts at our house. Then, we drove to Grandma Barbara's house to eat lunch, open presents, and spend the night. We enjoyed spending time with family, eating yummy food, and receiving some wonderful gifts!

On our way to Grandma's house!

Savannah read her new Bible in the car:
