Hoping everybody is nice and cozy today! *shiver* We have tons of snow and it is FRE-EZ-ING! Only 26 degrees! *shiver* Well, this is going to be one super long post but aren't Christmas posts always?:) Here we go!
|I woke up at about seven after a very long night-|
does it seem that way to you too? I think Christmas
Eve is the longest night of the year!
|Dad was already up and then a few minutes after, Anna and the|
boys came down so I took advantage of the moment and took
|They would not cooperate for a group shot:P|
|Then, when Mom and Owen got up,|
it was present time! Dad and I made
Mom this mug at Get Fired Up-she
|Then, Dad gave her this necklace from her friend Katie's Etsy shop-|
Near The Willows-look her up on Etsy! She has some beautiful stuff!
|Then, after we had gotten to all the presents, this is what|
our family room looked like.
|Anna was in a purple fuzzy world of delight with her new purple|
pajamas, purple bathrobe, and purple slippers!
|Anna and I got our first hoops!!|
|And I also got the first two Cherry Ames books! They are|
nursing books and sort of mystery books too!
|And then, Grammy and Grampy and Aunt Jen came!|
|Time for brunch! Some delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake!|
|Yummy little quiches! They have eggs,sausage,peppers|
and salsa in them! Yum!
|Hehe! I caught Grampy right in the middle|
|And then, we had a visit from Santa!:)|
Our cousin Kyle and his girlfriend April
came over with Grammy and Grampy.
This is what he was wearing when he stepped
out of the car:) He is huge!
|More presents, food, laughter and talking!|
|The boys both got snowboards! Guess what they have been|
doing all day??
|That is Aunt Jen in the chair, Dad and Kyle on the sofa|
and April is next to Kyle.
|Then, after Mom and Dad took a nap, we headed down to Nana|
and Poppy's for supper! This is the kid's table...
|And here is the adults table!|
|Here are all the American Girl dolls! Cecile, Caroline and Rebecca!|
|Their lovely tree!|
|They have this garland strung right there with little|
gold ornaments on it-each one has the name of one of their
foster children-they had a lot! In this one, Poppy was lifting
McKinley up to touch them:)
|Here is a colorized version:)|
|We were Skyping with Aunt Gladys and Uncle Ajax and I was|
trying to get a good picture but it turned out like this!
I must say, I like this picture of Poppy!
|Sorry about the bad photo-there's Uncle Ajax! He and|
Poppy look so much alike.....
|That is one of our favorite parts! Poppy even lets us take|
|She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes......|
