A wonderful Christmas
Friday I went to my mom's and baked goodies while the kids played with the grandparents. Friday night we headed to my sister's annual White Elephant party - crazy times! It was good to see everyone and enjoy the craziness only a white elephant party can bring :-) We made it out with house decorations, so I was happy!
Saturday morning we met up with everyone again, but this time at my dad's house up in the woods. Tons of snow meant great sledding for Addi and a few snowball fights for the adults! Addi and AJ were spoiled with great gifts (Aaron and I too)!
Saturday night we had a relaxing Christmas with Aaron's family - a great prime rib dinner followed by a drive to look at Christmas lights and then presents galore! Every present that Addi opened was her favorite and she would scream that she loved it - it was so cute! Oh I forgot to mention - Addi put out a cookie, carrot and milk for Santa and his reindeer Friday night and was thrilled to see it all gone Saturday morning - I can't wait to continue this tradition!
We finished our Christmas weekend by going to my parent's house on Sunday morning for a yummy breakfast and even more gifts - I didn't think it was possible to stuff the car with more gifts, but we managed!
We had a great Christmas weekend and feel blessed to have such a wonderful family!
