Christmas Day

We headed east of the mountains before Santa came into town and Elle woke up at Grami and Poppi's house with her cousins. 

Comparing her pillow pet with cousin Sophie

Wow, look at the cool stuff that Santa brought.

Marcus got an awesome rocking horse that all the cousin's got a chance on.  the best part was when he tried riding it home in the back of the truck.

Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve, we gathered with Wendy, Donny, Erik, Great Grandma S, Grandma, and Grandpa.

Elle helping Grandpa open his gift.  She was great at taking presents to their correct owners and then following up to make sure all wrapping was properly taken care of.

Chilling with Momma during a break in the action

Daddy got a hat but Elle was the one to show it off.

Elle got a book from Great Grandma

I know these words mean something...

Elle's favorite gift was the rockin' cow.  She took to it right away.  Such a cowgirl.

Elle also got a dancing Mickey.  She wasn't too sure off the bat but now she can't get enough dancing.  She plays with it every day when we get home.

So glad we could have Great Grandma S for all the fun.

Kim got a cool piece to hold all our wine corks.  Now we will have the goal of filling it.  Too fun!

Showing off on the cow

We followed up presents with an awesome dinner.  Thanks Aunt Wendy and Uncle Donny

Lana even came along and joined the party.  Thanks for coming!

Gigi gave Elle and Noah both a Tonka truck.  Thay loved them!

Nothing like a little bumper car action with the new toys.

Grandma made this awesome robe for Elle.  So cute!

Gigi checking out her brag book from Sarah and Josh.  It was a wonderful gathering and we were so happy to see everyone.
