We had a wonderful Christmas in Virginia this year with my side of the family.  We had lots of fun and of course ate way too much!  Here are some pictures from our trip!

Claire being a monkey on the plane ride there.

We went and looked at Christmas lights one night and this one house had a crazy amount of inflatables.  The kids loved picking out their favorites.

Claire loved the Dora inflatable!

Christmas Eve morning we woke up to this...

 The kids were so excited!

Claire loved her very first Barbie doll!

I love this picture of Cooper's face.  He must have been really excited about the Star War's Angry Birds Pajamas!

We couldn't find Claire behind all of her presents!

The Johnson kids ready to open presents!

The day after Christmas we headed up to West Virginia to spend a couple of days at the famous Greenbrier hotel.  Because we had so many people we stayed in one of the cottages.  It was so beautiful and it snowed while we were there.

Here is our cottage!  Isn't it beautiful?

The boys playing in the snow!

Claire all bundled up and ready for the snow!

My parents graciously offered to watch the kids one night and let us go out with the Hoovers for a date night.  We had a fun night just the adults!

It's time for our recap of 2012!  This year has brought some major answer to prayers and we have seen the hand of God move in incredible...
