The kids ready to see the lights at the Gaylord Texan
At the Gingerbread House
We spent a few days at my parents house playing, making Christmas cookies, shopping for last minute items, and eating yummy food before the craziness set in on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Eve the kids laid out their stockings and much to our surprise slept past 7:30 (that is sleeping in at our house!). It always cracks me up because the kids would totally be content with just what they get in their stockings, but everyone always goes overboard.
Some of the boys waiting at the top of the stairs to find out what they got from Santa. I'm pretty sure we have a picture of Christine and I and the rest of our cousins sitting on these steps on Christmas morning!
All the great-grandkids got special plush toys from my Grandad in their stocking. The boys were over the moon with their special toys!
Claire and her special "Claire-Bear". Each of the great-grandkids gets a special teddy bear on their first Christmas in memory of my grandmother.
