On the 22nd we celebrated Christmas with Spencer's family in Florida. We had the annual fondue dinner, fondue is probably one of my favorite traditions with Spencer's family. Then we exchanged gifts. Poor Andrew was so tired and not feeling himself that day, so Taylor did most of his unwrapping for him! Spencer got a white backdrop that he has been wanting for taking pictures, the boys got lots of toys, we got a new suitcase and I got a giftcard to MAC!
On Christmas Eve we woke up at 3:45 am and headed to the airport to fly to Ohio. We made it there by 9:00 and had the whole day to spend with family. That evening we went to my Aunt's house and had Christmas with all of my Mom's family. Andrew loved playing with my Aunt's dog, Ollie. He followed him around all night giving him toys and kisses! I think that my vow to never ever ever ever get a dog might just have to be broken someday!
We stayed with my sister and her family for the week so we woke up Christmas morning and had gifts from Santa with her family and my brothers. Wait, let me rephrase that, my children woke up around 7:15, had breakfast and then around 8:30 we decided to wake Joel and Caroline up to open gifts because they were still sawing logs! Haha!
I think the highlight gift of the day was Spencer's big gift. He got a new lens for his camera from my Dad and myself that he was not expecting at all. I wish I had taken a picture of him opening it! I got a Vera Bradley wallet and the first (and only) season of Kings on dvd.
We ended the night with an early bedtime for the kids while the adults played Things. It is a hilarious game that I would highly recommend, but only if you are playing with people that aren't too serious! We had a wonderful Christmas!
