Christmas with the grands!

One of the best things about having lots of family close by is that you get to have multiple days of celebrating!

Ready to go to Mimi & Pop's on Friday (and wearing a super cute top by
Amazing Gracie that I won as part of a collection naming contest - so fun!)...and yes, Hudson wanted nothing to do with taking pictures - boo!Aunt Lexi brought her new beau, Ben, who happens to have two little girls and Grace had a great time playing with her new friends. Isn't it funny how quickly kids make friends?? Such a neat thing to watch!Time for presents!In the middle of it all...Hanging out with Mimi & PopGrace with Aunt Marilyn - love this sweet picture!Thank you Mimi & Pop, Aunt Marilyn, Aunt Tammie, Lexi and Jade for all the fun and generous presents!!

Then on Christmas Eve it was time to celebrate with Noonie & Papa J...
We all went to Christmas Eve Mass, then to Noonie & Papa J's for dinner and to our house for presents. This is our attempt at a family photo right after mass...yes, hungry littles and ready-to-open-presents littles do not make for the best pic.Grace was sooooo excited to open this gift from Noonie & Papa J!Hudson checking out all his goodies...Such a serious block builder, he he he!But he's putty in Noonie & Papa J's hands!! This little boy loves to be tickled!!Santa was pretty sneaky this year and got lots of stuff off people's lists!HA! This one's a classic...Grace unable to take her eyes off the innotab and Hudson growling with his animals!There, that's better!Thank you Noonie & Papa J for all the fun gifts - we love everything!

And then the day after Christmas we went to Aunt Marilyn's & Memema's house to celebrate with them and with Mimsy & Papaw. I didn't get as many family pics as I would have hoped - my camera settings were all wrong - boo! But I can say one thing...our littles sure are spoiled loved by all the grands!! :)
Yay for puzzles and figuring things out!!Thank you Memema, Aunt Marilyn, Mimsy & Papaw!

For Christmas Day we had decided we wanted to stay home and relax and be together just the 4 of us...HA!...little did we know what was in store for us!! More soon!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas spending time with your loved ones and celebrating our Savior's birth!
