Christmas, Part 5

Saturday found us celebrating our last Christmas gathering, this time with my parents, grandma, sister and her family! We headed down to my parents house in the morning, and my sister and I prepared brunch for everyone! I made the quiche I had made Christmas morning (a big hit again!) and my sister made waffles from the same cookbook! We also had fruit (thanks Mom) and yummy bacon (thanks to my sister and BIL). We had so much good food, the weather was in the high 40s so the kids didn’t have to stay cooped up in the house, and we had a lot of fun hanging out. Oh! And, of course, opening presents! Again, we were all blessed with lot of great gifts! We had a fun time and returned home after having supper. We were glad to be home, but I do believe we got home with happy hearts, and the kids slept really well that night!

The kids waiting patiently. They actually did really well waiting to open the gifts! I was quite proud and surprised!

Ok, so my favorite gifts the kids got this year were from my sister and BIL. They were each (except Bekah) given a superhero costume! Riley deemed Ben "Super Storm" in this get up! Ben LOVED it and was SO PROUD of his costume!!!

It was purely Ben's idea to put Micah in this wagon and pull him around! They both seemed to have fun
