Thompson Christmas 2010
We had a great LONG Christmas (Trent was able to take off 2 weeks and since I'm not working now, we had a lot more flexibility). We went to Dallas and spent lots of quality time with Trent's family (both his mother's side and father's side ALL live in Dallas!) and then also got to see my family too! Here's the rundown of how our Christmas went!
Thompson Christmas (Christmas #1): Before Trent and I left town to see our extended family, we exchanged presents between the two of us. I got Trent some clothes (workout shirt, another shirt, and pants) and he got me Toms!! Kinley also got Trent a lovely self portrait for his office! I'm sure next year our little family Christmas will be more involved...this time it was just exchanging presents before getting in the car to make our trek to Dallas
Christmas Eve (Christmas #2): We spent Christmas eve with my Mother-In-Law's side of the family. That includes: The Thompsons (Jack, Sue, Linde, Trent and myself) and the Snyders (Allison and Glenna...Sue's sister, Ryan and his wife Olivia, and Jordan). I'm kicking myself for not getting ANY pictures this day except for Kinley in her Christmas Tree outfit (which of course she quickly decided to have a blow out in!). But my wonderful sister-in-law Linde did, so I stole one from her! We did not get to see Sue's father on Christmas eve as usual, but we are looking forward to introducing Kinley to PawPaw and Marie soon...her GREAT-Grandparents!

Christmas Day (Christmas #3): Thompson tradition is to spend Christmas eve with Sue's side, Christmas morning with just our immediate Thompson family, and Christmas afternoon with all the Thompsons...so here's Christmas #3. Linde gave Kinley an adorable dress complete with bloomers, tights...the whole 9 yards, so we dressed her up pretty for Christmas day (see below). It's quite funny going to such a fuss for a little 6 week old, I think at one point she gave me the look of "what in the world are you doing this to me for!?" but it made for great pictures!!! We also had one of Trent's best friends Jeffrey with us Christmas day - it was such a fun treat to have him there!!
And here's some pictures of the rest of the family from the morning:
