While Mike sits on the floor assembling Addison's gifts from Santa, and I'm sitting here on the couch like a bump on a log, I figured I might as well make myself somewhat useful. So I'm going to blog about our day today.
We spent our Christmas Eve with my family at Melissa's house. Uncle Frank and Cheryl are in from California, and we always love having them here. It was a wonderful, laid back day filled with love, laughter, food, drinks and merriment. Oh, and with GaGa around, of course there were lots of PRESENTS!
Uncle Frank and Cheryl gave grandma this throw with a photo of our entire family. Needless to say, she loved it.
Micah with his rocket ship we gave him.
Annalie loved her xylophone! (she could win a cutest baby contest. easy.)
A glimpse at the chaos. About halfway in.
My pretty Grandma.
Handsome brother in law, Adam.
My sassy sister :-)
Yeah, my mom got all of the kids (gently used) itouches. They're new to the kids! And they love them!
Adam got out his guitar and sang Christmas songs. And we all sang along. Sounds cheesy but it was fun!
Uncle Frank watching Toy Story 3 with the kids while they waited for dinner to be ready.
Melissa's beautiful table.
The kids table.
Aiden seems to have found his tongue recently. He had a fun time with Daddy at the dinner table.
The whole family!
Blog done, and Mike is still working on the first big gift from Santa. (There are three. Too many, I know. A barbie house, a princess kitchen and an exersaucer for Aiden.) Yikes, it's gonna be a long night!
