The days started out with Artie, Grayson and myself exchanging presents. Here is Gray with his big gift from Santa- A Jumparoo! He also loved his new Elmo toy that we got him!
Once we exchanged out gifts, we got busy in the kitchen. Artie and I host our family for breakfast every year. It is my favorite part of the day. After breakfast we all sat down in the living room to exchange gifts. First we had to try out the jumparoo! The family decided to only buy for Gray this year...we all have so much and do not need one darn thing. It was so fun to watch him with the gifts!
He did not know what to do with it as first...so he chewed on it!
We all rested for a bit and then headed to my in law's house for dinner. We were so surprised but the whole day it snowed! It was the first time in 17 years that our area had a white Christmas! The snow was so beautiful and made it really feel festive.
There was a full house at dinner- Artie's great aunt and uncle, my parents, his parents and Devin and Ashley! It was so much fun spending time with everyone and the food was delicious. I ate way too much. But can I help it that there were so many choices? I think not.

Once we were all stuffed and full of good cheer it was time to go home. Artie and I put Gray to bed and fell into ours as well. It is hard to believe it is over. Today, life goes...there are dishes to be done and laundry to be folded. At least the feeling of yesterday will stay with us for a while.
