Nana came over for an early steak dinner and we started the annual rides on the John Deere..... Lucas was finally not freaked out and somewhat enjoyed his ride around the backyard. Ethan took over steering - loved going down into the woods and around the tricky parts....
We came in and were entertained by Morgan's Irish Step Dancing. She really is good and it's hard stuff! I tried but just couldn't figure it out... Ethan was a pro at following her around and jumping up and down.
We got to open from Nana and she spoiled us all rotten. The boys really loved their "structions" (construction trucks). I REALLY loved getting some earrings that Grandad had given her years ago -- very special!
Auntie Katie, Morgan, Ethan and I went to church that evening. The kids did pretty well, though Morgan pretty much went to sleep on Katie's lap and Ethan fell through the chairs at one point. It was a nice way to remember why we celebrate Christmas! We came home and out went the cookies for Santa- very exciting! The kids were so excited and kept talking about whether they'd be on the naughty list or the nice list. Each was pretty sure that they were on the nice list and the other on the naughty list.
