Christmas

Kaitlynn slept until 11AM! It was so nice to sleep in. When she woke up, we opened presents. It was so beautiful outside, almost like a dream. While Kaitlynn was opening gifts, we could see the snow coming down from our front windows and the light dusting the earlier snow had left. We ate omelets and drank coffee / hot chocolate and listened to Christmas music. The omelets were delicious! It was nice taking it easy at our house, opening gifts and eating breakfast before having to leave the house to visit family.

We visited with Great Grandma, Aunt Sue and Uncle Dale. Then we went to MawMaw's where Denise and Brandon met us. Jeff, Hanna and Adam came over later. MawMaw, Dave and I cooked dinner. It was delicious! We had ham, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, potato casserole, dressing, Italian salad and rolls. Christmas was so much fun! We had a great time with family. We opened gifts and played Wii. We ended the night watching "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."

  8. Thanks for the nice comments. I think Kaitlynn was so tired because we were up late on Chrismtas Eve. I think she was just so tired from all the celebration on Christmas Eve, too.
