The day after Christmas we celebrated with my whole family (minus some of the Pasadena crew...we missed you guys!). It was nice because when we woke up we had the morning at home so Ellison was able to spend a lot of time playing with her new toys!
This picture cracks us up...we did some rearranging of furniture to make an official playroom. We cleaned out this piece of furniture to move into our kitchen. While Connor and I were in the other room we came back to see that Ellison had moved some of her belongings :) She thought we emptied it out for her...don't you love how she lined up her dress up shoes :) Such a girl!
After naps we loaded the kids up and headed to my parents house. We opened gifts then had a nice yummy dinner! We have a tradition with my family that when we open gifts we go around and take turns opening a gift at a time. Even though it takes awhile to get through it all, we really enjoy it because we are able to see what everyone got and sometimes past time stories and things come up during it all. I was a little worried that Ellison would just want to rip into all of her presents however she was amazing. She sat patiently waiting her turn and would assist each of us in opening our gifts.
