We ate my dad's delicious breakfast, and we let the kids open presents because they just couldn't stand it. Haha
After they opened presents we all quickly loaded up and headed to my dad's side of the family at my cousin Amy's. This was our first year at her house and it was really convenient for us because she has a 2 year old daughter so there were tons of toys to occupy my boys. Ha! It's funny because now there are my two boys, Brooklyn who is 2, and Jack who is 6 months old. The next youngest to this crew are Livvi (8th grade) and my Uncle Fred's twins, who just started High School! Having little ones makes the holidays so much more fun I think.
It was super warm that day, so we let the boys ride Peeps' motorcycle when we got back. Griffin rode by himself, which terrified me! But he did great.
Then we opened the rest of the gifts, and were all super spoiled! And we did stockings- which are huge in my family! My mom always gives us our favorite shampoos, razors and toiletries so we don't have to buy them all year! Ha! Love it. Plus we get gift cards to our favorite places.
After everything settled down, the boys got Peeps to color with them (Peeps is the man!). I have to look and find them, but I have a picture of him coloring like this with the girls when they were little too. How precious?!
We ate some dinner and had to head back home... the boys fell asleep on the way home because they were exhausted! Haha! We got everything brought in and then sunk into the couch and watched Christmas Vacation.
What a great few days filled with family, love, fun and Jesus.
