Christmas Day: We slept in!!! Peter and I got up around 8:30, and Nathan finally rolled out of bed after 9. Definitely another advantage of having older kids!
We had a simple breakfast of muffins and coffee. Mom and Dad normally come over early for breakfast, but I think everyone was just too worn out this year to even do breakfast.Our niece Addison stopped by mid-day with her mom, Shelli & family, and Peter's Mom, and my Mom and Dad came over later too.
Nathan went with Kayla to visit her family, then joined everyone for dinner at Peter's brother's house at 5. After dinner, we made a quick stop to see what Santa had brought Lacee, then called it a night and headed home.
Logan and Lindsey spent the holidays with her family- still on cloud nine from their engagement! :O) Logan had to leave for work at 2 a.m. to catch his flight to Tampa. He was not anxious to go back to work, but at least he was able to be home for Christmas this year.
at Ocean City Festival of Lights
December 26: Julie and Derek arrived today. The weather was horrible, a windy & rainy day, but once they got settled in, we exchanged gifts, got caught up and enjoyed spending some time together.
Derek made this for Peter who is a Rudolph fan...awesome job!
I believe Mom was demonstrating how to make a snow angel...LOL
We headed back to Peter's brother's house for dinner, but this time, we were in for a TEXAS SIZE FEAST! Shelli's boyfriend Peter cooked an amazing dinner on the grill for 18 of us! Best.Steak.Ever!!!
I had left my camera home because it was pouring, but I hated that I didn't get any pictures!
