Christmas in July: West TN Edition

Adam is originally from West TN, and his mom lives there now. In mid-December of last year, we headed that way for a Christmas shindig with his family there.

We made it to town in time for the family Christmas party.

We enjoyed lunch and a rousing game of Dirty Santa! After the party was over, Adam and I joined some of his cousins at the Moose Lodge in town for a bit (small town TN for the win) while Connor went with Gram to see her new house. While at the lodge, the power went out. It had been about 70 degrees that day, and some bad storms moved in.

Adam and I made our way back to Gram's. After sitting in the dark for a while, we decided to drive over to the next town to see the new Star Wars movie. After the movie, we made our way back and found the power was still out as we all went to bed.

Fortunately it came back on overnight. We spent the morning doing Christmas presents with Gram.

A little later in the day, we had to make the drive back home. It was nuts because it was suddenly 20 degrees and icy! Typical TN weather.

It was a quick trip, but we enjoyed getting to celebrate Christmas with family in West TN!
