Christmas Day and the day after were spent in Kingsport. The rest of the clan came in on the afternoon of the 26th just in time for a nice dinner and another round of presents for the kids. After a day back at home to regroup and repack, we headed up to Russ's Dad's on Friday. Carter hung out with Papa at work, unloaded a truck with a fork lift, and then proceeded to milk his Papa for McD's dinner, chocolate milk, cupcakes, and colored marshmallows from the grocery store. Papa loved it. Saturday Kristi and the other hero in Carter's life, Kevin drove up from Raleigh. We had a birthday present swap for all of the December baby's Connie, Kevin, and Carter and then of course our Christmas present swap. We spent a cold rainy Sunday after Church shopping. Then Monday we had a nice hike to the Cascades waterfall before coming back for the eating festivities. Later we got out Kristi and Kevin's WII game system and played that most of the evening. New Years Day we headed out late morning trying to beat the snow storm forcast for Boone which we successfully did.
