So in the midst of all the weddings, we did actually manage to have a Christmas around here.
Kirsten in her Christmas Dress.
We spent New Year's Eve at my dad and Patty's along with my mom and step-dad and John and Silver. We had dinner and decorated gingerbread houses.
Leaving Cookies for Santa
Kirsten's favorite present - a desk and chair. She also got a new bike from Santa.
We opened presents at our house on Christmas Eve so we could head to the Alleman's first thing on Christmas morning. I guess I should mention that we had a snow storm on the 24th and actually got several inches of snow. It was mine, Jeremy's, and Kirsten's first white Christmas.
We had fun opening presents with all of Jeremy's family. There were 20 people there and it took until after noon to finish. A highlight of the day was acting out the Christmas Story in full costume with her cousins and uncles.
