After Nathan, Jacob, and Gabrielle got home from his parents, our family headed to my parents' house to celebrate Christmas with my sister, Dee, and her family. We hadn't seen them since June, so it was a nice visit.

Emmaline really likes new gumball machine
Ellie got a doll baby that "gets sick" (Thanks Nurse Dee!)
Ellie and Colton had fun making the doll sick and then helping her feel better again.
Jacob got a Leap Pad Math game
The "boys" spent most of their time playing video games:
Andy (Dee's oldest), Colton, Ellie, Nathan, and Jacob
Ellie, Nathan, Jacob, Colton, and the other Andy (my brother!)

Mom and Dad loved their photo album I made of our trip to Cowan Lake
Nathan reads his book from Mom & Dad
My present from Katie...I've been wanting this sunflower painting for awhile.
Mom & Dad got me the sunflower wreath on the piano bench in the background.
Now all I have to do is get the kitchen painted so I have a place to hang them.
Giving Aunt Katie some love
Helping Papaw blow out his birthday candles.
Merry CHRISTmas to all! And to all a good night!

When we got home, the kids got to open their presents from my sister and her family in California. The kids loved what they got and Nathan and I loved our gift cards. The kids are really wound up and excited about tomorrow morning, but thankfully they went to bed without too much struggle. Now I'm off to arrange their presents in the living room and then head to bed myself.
