Christmas in Georgia

After a short while of checking out the gifts from Santa, it was time to pack up and drive to Georgia to spend Christmas day with my family there. We had lots of fun spending time with family and of course lots of good food.
A few generational pictures....Grandmama and her children: My Uncle Mike, Aunt Tammy, and my mother.
Grandmama and her grandchildren: Me, Paul, Amber, Kevin, and Chad

And here's the great-grands: Brian, Chloe, Kaylyn, Luke, and Brandon

And here's what we saw of the first White Christmas I can ever remember....We actually spent the day driving away from the snow. When we left home it was raining and yucky. When we got to Anniston, the rain turned to snow, and as we drove over Mt. Cheaha, the snow got harder and was starting to accumulate. Once we were over the mountain, the snow stopped and we drove back in to rain. It rained ALL. DAY. LONG while we were in LaGrange, but they had 2-4 inches of snow predicted for the night. With the temps predicted to remain below freezing the next day, we knew the roads would not thaw enough for us to be able to drive home the next day. Since Chris and I both had to be at work Monday morning, we decided to drive home Christmas night instead of risking being stuck in Georgia. SOooo, we headed home just before dark and drove BACK into the snow, couldn't cross Mt. Cheaha by this time so we had to come home through Talledega and the roads were still pretty treacherous and it was snowing really hard, but thank Goodness we made it home safely....and we made it to work Monday morning!

This wraps up the Christmas pictures. Wishing everyone a very Happy 2011!
