Wrapping Up the Break

I realized there were a few more experiences we had over the Christmas break that I had not blogged about.  On New Year's Eve, Ben, Matt and Grandaddy visited a Civil War battlefield.  Ben is really getting into these battlefield visits.  He was so excited.  They went to Murfresboro, TN to the site of the Battle of Stones River.  
 Ben had a blast.  He explained to me all about the battle and how it went.  I had no idea what he was talking about but it sounded like he learned a lot!
 Sunday night was the premiere of Downton Abbey.  We were all so excited so my parents decided to host a formal tea for the family in honor of the night!  My mom always does the best teas!
 The kids were on their very best behavior.  Kate gave us a speech about good table manners!

 The food was so much fun and it was a great evening with the family.  Great way to finish up the break.
 We also got to open our presents from GG and Aunt Lisa.  It was fun to drag out Christmas a little longer.  The kids loved their presents.  Thanks so much!!!
