Santa visited us a day early, so we woke up on the official Christmas Day and readied for worship. On Sunday afternoon, we headed to Lewisburg. First, we went to evening worship services with Grandma and Papa Don, and then we headed to their house for dinner and presents. My husband's sister and her family were there as well, and we enjoyed the few hours that we had to spend together. (We decided we need to have longer periods of time for the kids to hang out, so we are hoping to visit them in Atlanta some time soon.)
Grandma is so nice that she let the kids open presents before
eating. She figured that would keep them from asking "When can we open presents?" Of course, then they just said, "When can we eat? We're starving!"

On the morning of the 26th, Oreo got a present. The owners of her best friend, Trigger, were leaving to go out of town. The lady who boards our dogs opened late that morning, so Trigger got to come over for a playdate. The dogs had SO much fun. They played nonstop for 2 hours.
We spent most of the day playing games and enjoying time at home together. Dad takes off two weeks at Christmas. Because he travels so much during the year, these two weeks are our favorite time (if only it could be 80 degrees--that would be perfection!).
We got to spend more time with my husband's extended family on Monday evening. There are close to forty family members, so this get-together is never boring! The kids had a great time playing Apples to Apples, air hockey, video games, and other fun things. The grown-ups enjoyed catching up.

We have one more Christmas celebration remaining. We'll spend New Year's weekend at my parents' with my brother and his family. We are looking to more family fun!
