Atlanta Christmas photos
Purpose: To visit family for Christmas!
We went down to Atlanta to visit my family for Christmas. Our plans changed a little bit at the last minute since I had been sick for several days. We didn't want to risk getting anyone sick, of course! We ended up driving down on Christmas Eve and spent several days with my family before driving to Kentucky to visit with Gabe's family.
My parents had arrived on the 23rd and stayed until the 26th. The Bursons joined us on Christmas Day for dinner and presents.
About three years ago, Joseph was very interested in either learning the trombone or the french horn. I promised him that he could use my trombone if he wanted, but not until after his 10th birthday. Joseph's birthday is just before Christmas, and this was the big 10th birthday. He has been reminding me all year that it was almost time for me to bring him the trombone. He definitely wouldn't let me forget about it! He was excited to finally receive the trombone. I played it a little before handing it over, and I almost didn't want to let it go! But I'm glad that someone in the family will be learning and playing the trombone...and I still have my "fancy" trombone at home.
We weren't able to get together with everyone on my mom's side of the family this time. We visited with my Grandma beore Mom and Dad left town, and we got together with my cousin Karen afterwards. Originally, we were supposed to visit my mom's sisters and families on Saturday, but we missed out on the festivities since I had been sick.
We left Atlanta and drove to Kentucky for our next Christmas celebrations.
