Christmas at Grammy & Pa's

Christmas with Grammy & Pa was great fun this year.  We were so proud of all four cousins who did so well patiently waiting their turns to open gifts.  They thoroughly enjoyed each other this year!

Before wee had a very yummy lunch of Roast and the fixings prepared by Grammy, Grammy had made each kid a Christmas sack and after they patiently had their pictures taken several times, they were allowed to dive in!

Pa had just as much fun with all the goodies as the kids did!  First he and Eady played on the xylophone...

Then he helped Ava put on her new "mood" necklace. 

Carli got a new "mood" necklace too!

Then after lunch and dessert, we finally said it was time to open presents...after we took their pictures again!

Eady was a joy to watch as she was more interested in helping everyone else with their gifts than she was opening her own.  :)

The girls with their stash of gifts.

I love this picture, b/c it is a true smile from Pa.  We gave him the Internet TV at the lakehouse.  He kept trying to remind us to go back and get it but then we'd hear stories of he and Grammy watching Netflix movies when the stop by to "check" things at the lake.  We decided it would be more appreciated and used at the lake.  :)

One of the girls favorite gifts were Frozen blankets from Grammy and Pa.  They sleep with the every night.

We all take turns opening presents.  We even made the kids go last as we went from oldest to youngest.  They did so very well waiting their turns to open gifts.

Both the girls got mini sewing machines from Grammy.  They LOVE to have Grammy make them things and are very anxious to start learning from Grammy!

This like the picture of Pa, I just love it b/c it's a true smile from Andy.

This was Holli's first experience of Christmas at Grammy and Pa's.  Carli & Ava bought Holli a Troup Tiger's shirt and a stuffed Tiger.  We think she liked it!

Uncle Tone bought Holli a Tiffany's necklace.  He was pretty proud and she was totally not expecting it.  Pretty cool.

Sweet cousins.

Uncle Tone has begged, asked and attempted to barter for this clock ever since he got his own office a couple of years ago.  Keith loves this clock.  I don't care one way or the other.  Since we've moved there wasn't really a good "fit" for the clock and after much discussion and back and forth, Keith decided that it was time to pass the clock on to Tone.  I hope the clock is all Tone has dreamed it to be!

One of the things I treasure so much is the relationship I had with my grandparents.  It is so awesome to watch my girls build that bond with their grandparents.  Best gift of all!
