Trippet Family Christmas - Part 2

The day after Austin, which was the day before Colorado, we headed back down 35 for a little Trippet family Christmas action. It was sorta strange having Christmas before Christmas, but it was fun! The dogs got new beds (see: Hallie is so happy!), the guys got cologne, and the big kids got a pretty canvas :) I was so so excited to get these for everyone for their big gift. I was thrilled to watch them be so excited! Another thing we did this year, that I loved, was get each family (Trippets & Chambers/Elder) a gift card to Living Water International. It was a gift of clean water & we could all go online together and view videos of 8 or so different countries that Living Water had projects going with to give clean water. We got to watch them as a family & decide how much we were going to give to each story. It was just a fun little way to make Christmas about giving :) Later that night the crazy packing began to head to Colorado! More on the trip next post!
