Christmas Round 2

We celebrated Christmas with my mom, step dad, brother,2 sister in laws, 2 step brothers and my nephew on Sunday. We got there around 10am and didn't leave until a little after 6pm. We had an amazing breakfast ( with my moms yummy overnight eggs ), opened presents, watched the vikings game ( another post about that ), hung out and then had a yummy ham dinner.

Alex was all excited to open her gifts. Her cousin Nolan likes to take his time were Alex just goes from one to the other. Alex wasn't sure why Nolan would need a break in between each present and why he wanted to go play in the playroom instead of open his gifts.

I loved that my mom used Mickey Mouse wrapping paper as Alex thought everyone in Mickey Mouse paper was hers!

Here are family pictures below, of course this is us and it really isn't that flattering for me to be sitting down and leaning while pregnant in this picture!

Grandma and Alex right away in the morning. My poor mom was sick and barley had a voice but still enjoyed the day! So far it doesn't look like any of us have caught what she had/has.

Grandma and Grandpa with there 2 grandchild. Next year at this time there will for sure be two more added to this group as both Alex and Nolan will be a Big Brother/Sister! Maybe more will be on the way by that time as well ( we can hope right )!

My step brother Ross, sister in law Kendra and Nolan!

Here are a few shots of the little ones playing!

Alex got a mini trampoline, Dora roller skates, a jewelry box, books, a little caboodle with lots of little things in there and much much more!

We had a blast with family and it was so nice to have spend a lot of time with them. My step sister and her husband weren't able to make it this year as this is our off year. Next year we will be with my mom and step dad on Christmas. We missed them and hope we get to see them before Christmas of next year. They live in Cali as well as Ross and Kendra. We miss them and wish we got to see them a lot more then we do ( 1 or 2 times a year is just not enough ).
