Santa came, but he left some “suggestions” for improvement.
The little girls were up sooner than Adrienne would have liked. Don’t let this fool you though, she was thrilled with her gifts! She has an expensive dance shoe bill coming up, so she didn’t expect much for Christmas. Her Lucy outfit and Hunter boots were a total surprise!
She had to try them out-outside! Lexi got her IPhone! I have to admit I’m happy she’s got a phone again! Her other contract ended about a month ago, and I miss being able to text her!
Sof(Thank God for the cheap kid) had asked for a phone too:) Just the play kind though!
We had a relaxing morning with Sal. We ate a nice big breakfast and hung out till around noon. Then Sal headed out. We cleaned up and got ready to go to Em’s.
Mom, Dad, and Grandma arrived with a
van sleigh full of toys! It takes a long time to open all those packages! Lexi got a Karaoke machine, which has provided lots of entertainment for everyone!!
Grandma Jackie loved the photo book of her birthday party that we put together for her.
The rest of the night was spent singing with the kids on the karaoke machine and eating! I didn’t take many pictures, but we were busy enjoying ourselves.
Sof gave Grandma a little lesson on YouTube. Something that is so normal to Sof, is mind blowing to Grandma!
The next day everyone came to our house for lunch. Grandma had only seen the new house once, and I wanted her to see the decorations.
It was nice to have one more meal together before they had to get on the road to home.
Emily gave Adrienne a book she’d been wanting. She opened it up Christmas night and started reading it right away. By the time lunch was over she had finished it!
Once everyone left, we weren’t ready for the fun the end. We loaded up the kids and went sledding. After a little naptime of course:)
Sof was totally able to keep up with the big girls this year! She was going down and climbing up on her own!
And so ends another beautiful year in the story of our life.
