Like most Holidays things were busy. But this year unlike past years was so fun to watch really get Christmas. The whole month of December we have been talking about Baby Jesus and His birthday and presents... you know... so here is how our Christmas went.
Christmas Eve started off nice and slow. After naps we got dressed and headed to church. Grace kept saying that we were going to have a party for Jesus. (See she really is sort of getting it...so super cute).
After church we headed to my parents house to have a Christmas Eve dinner with my mom's side of the family. We got home late and Adam and I went to town on setting up. We couldn't wait to see Grace's face in the morning.
So Christmas morning came and Adam and I were ready with the camera and video camera... Grace was wondering why there was a paparazzi waiting for her to come down the stairs. She just started pointing to the doll house that was sitting there waiting for her. I guess she was in shock that it came since we have been talking about a doll house all month.
Emma loves her new stocking that mom made her! Isn't that the cutest sugarplum fairy?!
Anyway, after we played with Santa gifts my parents and little brother came over and we opened presents and ate a yummy breakfast.
I love this one... Grace already has the wrapping off the gift and Emma is still focused on the bow!
Christmas afternoon we headed to my aunt and uncles house to celebrate with my dad's size of the family.
(Just a little side note: We have a huge family... my mom has 8 siblings and my dad has 7, so family events usually bring 30+ people...and that is just immediate aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents!)
