To continue our Christmas day, after opening gifts at home, we head off to Grandma and Papa's house! The boys always head right for a "vintage" (read: OLD) Fisher-Price little people house. Don't ask me why! While they do that though, the rest of us enjoy Mimosas and New York coffee cake =) That's the prequel to our customary lunch of London Broil with twice baked potatoes!
The gifts were fabulous, of course--the little boys got monogrammed bath towels from Lands' End, Parker added to his full-zip hoodie collection, Arielle got a watch she was hoping for, Kurt had a duty bag picked out from Galls and Momma (along with the other girls) got fun new slippers---and boy did I need some!!!!
We break away to get the big kids over to Kurt's parent's to open their gifts (since they miss out on Xmas eve) and Arielle continued to expand her Vera Bradley collection while Parker can help anyone in need with a portable battery charger--among other things!
I know I said it before, but it bears repeating--we are a very fortunate bunch of people!
