The Early Christmas

My parents spent almost a week in Louisiana for Christmas with my grandmother so we (because hospitals never close and sick babes need to be taken care of) celebrated with my mom and dad a bit early. It was the Saturday before the big day, which is also my mom's birthday, so we enjoyed some yummy Italian food to celebrate her before moving onto presents for all. :)

Isn't her tree pretty?

And the presents were plentiful. Let's say many were the girl's.

We sort of slowly opened gifts this year. I blame it on the post carb coma.

And some of us (hi, Muffin!) found the decorations...

...and posed among them.

Others checked out their gifts with great detail.

Sweet boy was, as always, a perfect gentleman.

And then we took the obligatory Christmas photos because, well, it's a rule. Of mine anyway.

Can we talk about his face? Really?

And we even got the girl to smile. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

It was a sweet, non-rushed, fun day. And - though all the gifts were nice - the Duck Dynasty trivia game won the day. Thanks, y'all! :-)
