It’s that time of year again where I bring you the we’re-at-my-parents’-house-here-are-a-ton-of-photos post. This post will include all of the same elements that always make an appearance in those about Christmas with my family.
1. Silliness with Grandma (and playing with my old toys):
^^The girls decided that Barney, my huge old teddy bear, was sick, and they were doctoring him in Grandma’s bed.
2. Watching our favorite Christmas movie, Heidi:
^^Baby Sis was even enthralled by this, the best holiday movie ever.
3. Story time at the library with Grandma:
^^She could not understand why she couldn’t just go get in Grandma’s lap for a story.
4. And of course, a big holiday free-for-all with my brother’s family yesterday.
We haven’t seen my brother and his family in a long time, and it made me so happy to see my kids and his kids jump right into cousin-ly camaraderie.
It was awesome to have my whole family together. Six adults + Seven kids (two of which are toddlers) = Crazy and wonderful.
The present opening was just as chaotic as ever, and just as fun.
More silliness with Grandma:
After my brother and his clan left the girls got dressed in their new princess PJs, which Lass had been begging to put on from the moment she opened them.
They danced around in their new finery, with Lass breathlessly proclaiming, “I’m Snow White! I am really and truly Snow White! All my dreams have come true!”
At the end of the evening last night, we put on a movie for tired girls (and tired parents).
We have one more day at Grandma and Grandpa’s before hitting the road to go home on Saturday. We’re packing in as much quality time as we can.
