Christmas #2--Just Us

Well, Nona and Pop had to leave to go home on the afternoon of the 23rd, so Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were pretty much just the 3 (or 4) of us! I can't remember that we've ever had that, so in a way it was kind of neat! As our kids get older it is nice to have Christmas morning and "Santa" in our own home under our tree with our own traditions. We did go to Christmas Eve service with Craig's family and then ate dinner with them, then we went to Grandma's house the evening of Christmas Day for dinner and stockings. We always wait until the day after Christmas to open gifts with Craig's brothers and their families because everyone is usually not here until then. Anyway, Santa brought Avery a tool set and some neat things in her stocking. Mommy and Daddy got her a crawl through tent/tunnel set, a tee ball set, a new shopping cart, a basket for her tricycle, a disc swing to hang in a tree outside, and a new "big sister" shirt with a matching "little sister" shirt for Bailey! She mostly played with her tee ball set (it's foam) and tool set that entire day. This girl loves her boy toys! She likes her baby and makeup set and purses, but she equally loves anything from the boy aisle as well! She's very well-rounded. :)
