We had a great Christmas Eve and Day and hope you did too!
We started our celebrations by heading down to Granna and Opa's house (Matt's parents'), where my parents, Matt's brother Andrew, his wife Alexis, and Alexis' parents all gathered as well. (Matt and his brother both had the wisdom to marry only children--simplifies the holidays!)
My MIL always sets a beautiful table, and we enjoyed a delicious brunch!
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!and A Bedtime for Bear (Bear and Mouse). Kate loves to read, and has definitely been enjoying those new books!
Kate and Nala being cute...
... and roughhousing with Popi.
I love Kate's tights, I've just gotta say.The Night Before Christmas.
Christmas morning, we were so excited for Kate to see her new kitchen! I didn't take any pictures of her first seeing it, but you can see here how she is enjoying it, along with all the accessories the rest of us gave her--the tea set from Granna and Opa, the metal pots and pans from Matt and I, and the food and shopping cart from Nala and Popi.
Then Kate checked out the rest of her stocking!
And then we opened the rest of our gifts!
I hope you all had a very merry Christmas, and enjoy this (hopefully quiet and lazy) final week of 2010!
