Four Christmases

We had four Christmas celebrations in 24 hours.  First, we celebrated on Christmas Eve at my grandparents' house (my mom's side of the family).
 Not wanting to be held...Adeline, her daddy, & her Pappy
 Teething (I just noticed today that her top left molar has broken through.  I guess that's what she was working on here.)
 My Uncle David letting her open a present early.  He tried so hard to get her to like him.  She was his best friend by the end of the night because he kept giving her dollar bills every time she came to him.
Who knew it could be so entertaining watching a baby open gifts?
 The grandkids (+ a girlfriend) & great grand-daughter
 My mom & her 2 sisters with their husbands
 My grandparents & their only great grandchild 
Destroying some tissue paper

We spent the night at my parents' and Christmas morning with them.  Unlike her first Christmas, Adeline woke up at 5:30 and was ready to tear into some gifts!
 Waiting on Nana to pass out stockings
 Checking out the real REASON for the season
 Time to open presents!
 Watching her new fish tank in her new chair
 Nana made blueberry pancakes for breakfast..yummy!

After breakfast, we had lunch at my other grandma's house (my dad's mom).  

 Getting to know her cousin Makya..too bad they hardly ever get to see each other
 Oh Nana is so funny!
 The little ones (some are grands, some are great-grands).
 More presents to open!
 Learning how to write
The big ones (minus a few Houstonites)

Afterwards, we went over to Jon's parents where we all took a nap.  When Adeline woke up, we began the Christmas festivities there.  We had chili and opened more presents.
 She knows this is where her Tiny keeps dishes for her to play with

 When all the presents had been opened, she crawled in this box by herself and tried to close it around her, then she pulled wrapping paper on top of her.  She's the best present I've ever gotten!
 Uncle Shane got a new camera lens..we played with it a lot

 She was too excited to eat when everyone else was eating, so she ate later going between her daddy & her Big T
 Helping Daddy open his presents
 Rocking with Tiny
 Playing in the box some more
 Trying out Mommy's new present...we love it!
 Looking at the pretty Christmas tree
 I said, "Give Baby Jesus kisses"

We had such a great time celebrating Christmas with all our family.  We are still enjoying our vacation and time with family.
