Christmas Day with the Family

Bailee is ready for Christmas dinner, Nana always makes sure everything is beautifully decorated and special for this day, even down to the little kids table!

Liv, Bentley, and Ellie patiently waiting to eat and drink from their "special" glasses!

Nana and Grandpa passing out gifts to very excited grandkids! (and kids)

Mclaren is excited for her present too!
I just had to post this pic of her...she's just too cute!

I think Miles was happy!

A gift that is fun for the whole family!

A very suprised Bailee opening her gift from nana and grandpa that she thought for sure she wasn't going to get! Spoiled!

After Christmas and all the busy, craziness was over, we spent most of our time hanging out together in the basement...

I know this is a bad pic, but I couldn't leave out a pic of the Ping-Pong table that we all played some intense Around-the-World games on! As far as the one-on-one Championship games go...so far, no one has been able to beat Josh! He has got some serious table tennis skills!

I just thought this was a funny pic of how Livvy carries Jasper around, she loves him and never lets him go!

We are so lucky to be able to spend the holidays with the people we love and every year we are reminded of how blessed we really are. We love visiting grandparents, cousins, and good friends and wish that the time didn't go by so fast, but we enjoy every minute of it while we are there!
