Christmas was SO good to us this year. It was a little different since it landed on a Sunday, but it honestly made the day that much better! We had to wake everyone up around 7:45. Paalo didn't fall asleep until about 12:30am...so she wasn't a very happy girl when we were waking her up. After a little bribing that Santa had come, she finally came out into the living room with us to see what Santa had brought! She was a little shy at first...but then jumped right in and knew just what to do with her kitchen! We opened presents for about 45 minutes and then had to hurry and get ready for church.
After church we went back home to finish up presents, then to Grandma Frei's for breakfast, to Grandma Vicki's for presents, back to mom and dad's, and then finally around 5 o'clock we headed back home to spend the rest of the time with Misi's family. The girls were pretty exhausted by the end of the day but both did great! We felt that we were given so much this year, and like all years, were VERY grateful for the wonderful family that we have. And especially to our wonderful Grandparents who do so much for us and are such an example! Thank you to ALL of our family for a beautiful Christmas this year.
Tali was just hanging out and Kannon came and laid by her!
