December, Part Two
We are blessed to have next-door neighbors that are like family.  We got together with them on the 22nd to exchange gifts.  They gave my Best Girl the Disney version of Apples To Apples , and this has become one of our favorite gifts of the season.  We've played it many, many times over the last week.  I highly recommend it!

These two boys are best buds!
My Best Girl looks up to these sweet sisters!

On December 23rd, we headed to my aunt's house for a Christmas feast.  My Favorite Boy enjoys playing video games with my cousin's son, and my Best Girl chills with his daughter.



My aunt served a delicious meal that everyone devoured except me.  I am determined to make it through this season without breaking my sugar-free, grain-free, dairy-free diet!  After lunch, we visited and opened presents.  I am trying to take lots of pictures of people this year (rather than just my children and their presents).  I know these family pictures are the ones we will cherish the most!

Because Santa visited us on the 24th, the 23rd was our Christmas Eve. We left my aunt's house and returned home to open family presents.

Ruckus--I highly recommend this fun card game!

Grammy and Papa lived out-of-state for over 10 years. Even though they live close now, they come on Christmas Eve to spend the night. We all made it to bed, and my Best Girl was the first to wake up at 5. Dad got in bed with her to encourage her to go back to sleep. By 6:30, both kids were awake, so the Christmas fun began!

Ready to Check Out the Stockings
Hooray--a Kinect and Games!
My Favorite Boy, His Oregon Pillow Pet, and His Papa

Oreo also enjoyed Christmas. She liked her toys, but she mostly liked running off with the wrapping paper!




We spent the rest of the day in our pajamas playing games. It was a wonderful day!

Dad is talented!  He can play Hedbanz and watch Cars 2 in 3D at the same time!

More Christmas festivities to come!
