Christmas Eve, we always eat dinner at my mom's. It alternates between chili and spaghetti. This year was spaghetti. After dinner, we watched Ice Age 3 and then took the kiddos home and tucked them into bed so Santa could come fill our stockings and leave a present or two.
See that pile of loot spilling into the room? They all had MY name on them! Santa unloaded those from his car, er, I mean sled, when I was in the other room. :o)
The Dad's sister sent the cow for Baby. He's so cute.
The kids woke us up at O'dark thirty Christmas morning. I managed to fend them off until about 6:00.
After opening presents at home, we loaded up into the car to head back over to my mom's to see what Santa left there. Once my sister's family arrived, Santa stopped in on his way back to the North Pole.
My niece slept through Santa this year. :(
Then it was time for brunch. Mmmmm, food.
We had ham, harvest potatoes, scrambled eggs, homemade applesauce and yummy cinnamon bread.
Here's brunch on my plate - well, the first round anyway.
And off to 2012 we go.....
