Christmas with Grandpa & Grandma

Last weekend we traveled to my parents' house for an overnight stay and Ellie's first Christmas celebration.  We had a great time seeing my parents, three of my brothers, two of my sisters, one of my brothers-in-law and three of my nephews.  Because I come from a big family (five sisters and three brothers), it's hard to get everyone together at the same time.  So this was the biggest gathering we've been to in a few years.  It was fun to see everyone, play games, eat food and open presents.

Because I never remember to take pictures, I only got a few and they're all of Ellie.  Go figure.

 Ellie sat on grandpa's lap while everyone opened their presents and enjoyed watching.

Loving being the center of attention.

 Opening her first present!

Playing with wrapping paper on the floor.

"Mom, have you seen this stuff?  It's great!"

 Someone must have told a funny joke.
