First Married Christmas: Midwest, part 2

Before we knew it, we were waking up at the ridiculous hour of 6am Christmas morning so we could fit in present opening before church. (oh wait, that was just me because I wanted to get my shower in before the masses woke up).  I succeeded, but everyone else rolled out of bed immediately prior to these photos, so I'll apologize for them and to them for sharing :-)


Our third Christmas, but the first we've spent together!

We kiddos went in and got my dad a TomTom GPS




the only picture of my brother turned out horribly, so I won't share.

We had my mom's parents and brother/sister-in-law over for Christmas dinner and Kelsey jetted off to be with her new fiance's family, so it was a pretty calm Christmas day.

After an enormous Christmas dinner, my brother fell asleep with Tyson, one of our family dogs, and I couldn't resist the photo op.



We spent the afternoon playing games, chatting and lounging
How cute are Eric and my grandpa?


On Saturday, it was another family party with my dad's extended family so we could see them (this is usually a new year's deal, but they rearranged it for us.

Loads more food (I'm a bad blogged and took no food photos!) and Eric taught the cousins how to play the games he got for Christmas


I have no idea why my sister is wearing her volleyball jersey...and take no responsibility..

It was nice to see the family and be at 'home' for a few days, but we realized quickly we didn't have nearly enough time to do anything but see family (no seeing the city or most friends this trip!)
