so, with my schedule & cameron's schedule...
we had to do christmas all crazy like.
we left on a Thursday after I worked 4 days in a row.
and drove to Lawrence, KS.
We stayed 2 nights with Sus & Chris & Felix.
Mom & David joined us there, and we had a mini family Christmas!
Friday we cooked our Christmas feast
Sus was doing an elimination diet, so we had to follow strict rules.
We had mashed cauliflower
a special pumpkin pie
turkey breasts from the local farm
and lentil salad
it was actually DELISH!
this was packing to go
in the car, i think hazel fell asleep coloring :)
I made Felix and Hazel matching jammies
and they were so so cute!
Hazel got to open 1 present Thursday night
it was this amazing owl backpack!
we went to the park
it was super chilly, but fun!
probably the best moment of the trip was while felix was eating lentil salad
and he kept making this face.... literally mom and I were crying.

Then saturday morning, we packed up the car and headed to Arcadia, OK
to visit with Gram and the Phelps Crew.
It was me, cam, sus, felix, and hazel and all of our stuff crammed into the car.
Not that exciting of a car ride, but we made it!
I was starting to get nauseated on the way there, but I thought it was from sitting in between both car seats and being in the car. NOPE... I got some random stomach bug that had me up all night.
but I felt okay the next morning.
Then at about 12, everyone started to show up!
we ate, we opened gifts, we played, we lounged.
it was so great to see everyone.
we attempted kid photos.
hmmmmm, it's really hard with all these littles.
i dont think there was a single pic where they were all looking or sitting.
oh well :)
then we tried to get one of the girls.
G didn't really like that.
don't remember why sus was doing this
was she showing off her huge muscles?
but it was amazing!
then, about 6pm
we loaded up the car
and the cannons headed to Dallas.
