Christmas brunch at the adult table.
To make it last longer we start with my Grandpa receiving his gift and working our way down to the youngest.
This year we were able to trick George and confuse him so thoroughly he had no idea who had him which was great!
John was making fun of me as I wanted them to take their time giving the gift so I could get a picture. Love his expression! What a goof!
Missy finally got the cash register she has been asking for. Now she can play store to her hearts content! And maybe learn some math along the way.
Tank and Seppy were there but I didn't think you wanted to see pictures of every gift exchange. :) Here is Zippy doing one of his favorite things this Christmas season. Reaching for the ornament. We worked hard with him so he is a little better at just touching with one finger. Of course there is still the occasional grab and throw.
When my sister and I were little girls we made up actions to the The Twelve Days of Christmas and liked to perform them each year. And for me it has to be to the Dinah Shore version my Dad always played from a record. We haven't done that for awhile but this year revived our act much to the enjoyment of our children. They cracked up on the 6 geese as we pretend we are laying eggs and plop our bottoms down and make a noise. Of course we were cracking up too and remembered what a workout it is by the end. John videoed it but I am not going to share that here. :)
