Christmas in Illinois

We traveled to southern IL for Christmas to visit with Matt's grandparents and some extended family. Since our family has doubled in size since last Christmas, we opted to stay at a local hotel. The girls spent Christmas Eve with us at the hotel, but spent Christmas night at GiGi's (Great Grandma's) house. Grandma Melanie and Aunt Buffy were real troopers to keep our girls overnight, especially since they were too excited to go to sleep when they should have. =)
