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."

Christmas Eve

Thursday morning, Dave got his haircut (by Hanna) and ran some last minute Christmas Eve / Christmas errands. Later, we went to MawMaw's and started cooking dinner. Hanna, Adam, Denise and Brandon came over. We spent time with Jeff until he had to go to work.

Jim, Trina, Nate and Sis came over before dinner. We ate dinner and exchanged gifts with Nate and Sissy.

We had an awesome Christmas Eve. The weather wasn't wonderful (wet and rainy), but we had a great time together.

Late that evening, Hanna colored and trimmed MawMaw's hair, cut my hair and painted my nails red and trimmed Kaitlynn's hair. She did a really good job! She's getting really good at cutting hair. Dave, Brandon and Kaitlynn played Wii golf. Kaitlynn did really good, too! She had a blast playing.
