'Twas the Night Before Christmas

 ...And for us that means Christmas Eve at Deedee and Papaw's house.  We were joined by Emme, Grumpy, Bryan, Morgan, Chris and Heather.

We arrived in the late afternoon, and the kids were beyond excited.  Especially when they saw this...


Before the chaos began, we had to stop for a family pictures.  Too bad Graham was distracted by Cash!


At last it was time to begin!  Stockings first!  Graham was entranced by this light-up, spinning thing.  The girls loaded up on bath gels, lotions, hair stuff, and lots of other treasures.


When it was time for presets, Sydney was SUPER excited to receive a "real" cheerleader outfit!  She immediately changed into it, and wore it the rest of the evening.


 Jane was equally excited to get crutches, a sling, and some other medical gear.  She has been hobbling around ever since!


Graham's was not feeling his best.  He had a nasty cold, but he participated here and there.  He seems to have gotten the hang of unwrapping!
 

Clare loves her a good project.  This, along with a bunch of other office supplies, should set her up for a while!


Graham did perk up when his Thomas tent got set up!


We all got way so many great gifts, and it was a great start to our Christmas holiday!  Next up,  it was time to get home and get ready for Santa!
