Christmas: Part I

 Bebe and Grandpa came to visit last weekend to celebrate our Christmas with one another. We'll be at Grandma and Papa's this weekend for the real deal. We had such a good time together! Connor thoroughly enjoyed opening his presents. He also loved having to help Addie open hers. Actually, he had fun helping everyone! We also enjoyed a yummy lunch together and pumpkin pie for desert. Christmas gets to be more and more fun as Connor gets older. And Addison loves to get her hands onto things so we knew she would have fun with it.

I haven't mentioned this before but we started a new tradition this year - Elf on a Shelf! Connor named him Wilson and it is working like a charm. For those of you not familiar with Elf on a Shelf, he is basically an elf sent here to watch the kids who reports back to Santa every night. His magic powers give him the ability to fly back each night but we can't touch him or he will lose his magic. Every morning he is in a different spot in the house. At first Connor didn't know what to make of him and was maybe even a little scared of him. Now he is having the best time looking for him each morning. If he starts to whine or not do what he is told, all we have to say is Wilson is watching and he stops almost immediately. I'm going to miss him when Christmas is over! :p

Our first fire
 The rest of our Christmas pictures with Bebe and Grandpa can be seen here. As I mentioned above we'll be spending Christmas with the Gumula clan in Cape Haze.  We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
