We arrived Christmas Eve night in time to make it to my cousin’s house for the extended family celebration. We missed Santa and dinner but were so thankful we were able to see everyone before we all took off our separate ways for the evening. Once we got back to my parent’s house, we got the kids in their Christmas pj’s and Hannah Gray put out cookies for Santa and a carrot for the reindeer.
All of my siblings and their kids spent the night at my parent’s house so it was fun to all do Christmas morning together. Santa left the kids stockings which was fun to experience together. Hannah Gray was a bit excited and a little scared that Santa ate her cookies and the reindeer took a bite of carrot. You could see her wheels turning on that one.
My parents took everyone to the Conservatory for a fun Christmas tradition. We went through the entire garden, saw the live manger scene (well, the animals at least were real) and then all of the grandkids got to pick out a Christmas ornament. It was really fun and everyone really enjoyed it! They then took us out for lunch at Skyline!!! MMMmm, I was really craving that one! :)
Aunt Sarah even took HG’s stitches out!!! :)
