Christmas with Grammy & Pa

We had Christmas at Grammy & Pa's on the day after Christmas.  Since more than half of us were recovering from a bout with the flu, it was a pretty laid back day.  The first thing we tried to do was get a cute picture with all the grandkids.  Turns out Carli still doesn't like for people to watch her take pictures, even if it is family.  Logan and Ava cheesed it up for the camera.  Carli, not so much...


My handsome nephew, Logan.

Carli & Ava
The picture says it all!

Now, when you tell Carli she can't open presents until she smiles for the camera...you get results!

And finally, they got to open presents!  The kids were taught a lesson in patience this year.  They had a hard time waiting their turn to open their gifts!  Some of Ava's favorite gifts included some new Calliou books, a baby doll stroller, a jewelry box and a lot of homemade busy bags from Grammy!

Carli got a lot of neat things.  She really likes her new jewelry box, a real big girl necklace (camo) from Pa, her busy bags from Grammy and some sparkly new pants.

We had a lot of fun getting gifts for our family this year.  The girls picked out a couple of gifts, including a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shirt for Uncle Tone...

We got and made Aunt Chelle a "Child Training Bible."  I really liked this project and hope to finish up one for us to use really soon too!

Grammy was surprised that Pa got her a new Nikon Camera like I have!  We are going to get to take a class together soon so we can learn how to use it!

Pa with his Angry Bird Pajama's from Carli and Ava.  This was one of those gifts that we walked by in the store and Carli about had a coronary trying to get me to buy it for Pa...because he really, really, really needed it.  Pa loves Angry Birds, it's the only game on his iPhone!  So obviously, her powers of persuasion won.

And after all the gifts were unwrapped, Pa had one more present for the grandkids...it was upstairs waiting on them...

And they had a blast playing with it!  I'm sure there are many memories to be made with this new toy!

We finished up our day eating some pizza at Pizza Hut...and it was good!  :)  We were all worn out by the time 5:30 rolled around.  Ava fell asleep in the car about 6 and she slept until 8:30 the next morning!  We had a great day and felt very blessed to have spent it with such an awesome family!
