Christmas 2010 - Round 3
Our third round of holiday fun was at my Mom's house. We spent all of Christmas Day hanging out with her and Rocco and Meg. Another fun day of eating, drinking, playing games and just catching up. We busted out the dominos, and got in several rounds of Toy Story 3 Uno. Even little Amy held her own with the games this year! It is amazing how quickly they grow up!
After an awesome dinner of filet mignon, baked potatoes and salad .... it was yet another round of GIFTS!
Again, regardless of whether or not it was requested or appreciated, the kids helped everyone with the unwrapping. The highlight of the night was Matthew's new orange cones and roll of caution tape that my Mom gave him. I think our house is going to be covered in yellow and black for a long time to come! He was in heaven!
We got our membership to the Zoo renewed, and so many wonderful gifts.
Nothing like two full days of family fun at Christmas. Again, we are so lucky to be able to do this every year. I don't know what we would do if we lived far away from our parents and siblings. It just wouldn't be the same. We have much to be thankful for this year ... and every year.
