The Willis Family Christmas!

These are some of the pictures from our "Christmas morning" yesterday. Last year we decided that since we travel to see our families, that we'd have our own celebration of waking up on "Christmas morning" a little early. With 2 little ones it starts rather early, so we start with a big breakfast!

The boys enjoying their breakfast of eggs, bacon and biscuits!

Checking out the stockings....

Half family pics; I guess we could have pulled out the tripod to take one of all of us, but we didn't.

A little Christmas news that is a great "present" to us......our house has officially sold! The sign is down!! Our buyers finally did sell theirs and inspections are done, so we are now moving forward to close sometime in mid-January! We are excited that it has finally happened and have madly been searching for a place to live. We are leaning to rent as of now, although the market is prime for buying, but we just feel overwhelmed with our time crunch and not really finding "the house" so we don't want to just settle either. So the past several days have looked at quite a few rentals, and will hopefully make a decision soon. We obviously want to know where we'll be going when we come home from traveling as we'll have to basically start packing up! So we are thankful that God has finally moved and sold our house so we can be closer to the campus!

  1. Congrats on the house! What a relief!! The house across the street from us is for rent. We're close to campus too. I think it's a ranch with 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bath and has been recently updated (although I don't know how great it is inside). I will get the number for you if you're interested!

  2. I'm so glad the 'merry christmas' panties fit....that is an adorable pic! You're so talented. Can't wait to see you this weekend. love you, mom

  3. Congrats on selling your house--yeah!!!

  4. Praise the Lord that your house sold!!! I love your idea of doing Christmas early. We should think about doing that because, even though we wake up here on Christmas morning, the rest of the day we are running from family to family and don't really get to enjoy our own family time. Great pictures!
