After we had dinner Keri Beth put together a cute scavenger hunt for the kids to find their new Christmas Pajamas. I tried to get a picture of the girls in their Christmas Pajamas, and well, this is the best that I could get.
After we got the kids in their PJ's, we had our traditional Christmas program followed by one hilarious rendition of The 12 Days of Christmas. After that, we played some games that Tim's mom had prepared. Those games included The Price is Right, which we won a box of goldfish, and Lego fruit sacks. (figures since those are always on our grocery list) We also played Little Einsteins BINGO.
Here are a few more pictures from that night.
We were a little worried how the kids would do sleeping together in the same room, but they both did great with one exception. That night Tim was sick and was snoring in his sleep. This woke Drew up and caused Drew to stir a bit. That caused Addison to stir and say half asleep, "Drew don't, don't Drew!" It was hilarious. I was worried that they might not go back to sleep, but within seconds everyone was sound asleep again.
Christmas morning we woke up bright and early at 7:00. Tim's family did that for us since we had to be to my parents house around 11:00. As you can see from the picture below, Addison wasn't ready to get up.
After we finished opening presents, the snow was starting to come down. It was blowing really hard and Tim and I weren't sure if we would be able to make it down to my parent's house, but we decided that we had to try. Tim's mom packed us up some food, blankets and some other things just in case we got stuck. The hardest part of the drive was just getting from Tim's parents house to the freeway, but even the freeway was really bad until we got to Ogden. (that's Tim's account anyway. I wouldn't know since I feel asleep right when we got on the freeway!) Eventually we made it to my parent's house and had a wonderful Christmas breakfast with my family.
Addison loved opening presents and was more than happy to help Drew open hers. We would ask her if she wanted to help Drew open her gifts, and she would immediately start unwrapping. Once she finished opening Drew's present she would show it to Drew and say, "Drew, cute!"
Tim and I thought this picture was so cute of Addison playing with her new kitchen from Grandma and Grandpa Wright.
Although we had a wonderful Christmas we really missed Mary, Cameron and Hudson. We were sad that we couldn't celebrate Christmas with them this year.
