We spent the day of the 23rd in Park Ridge, eating at Five Guys, having coffee with Kendell and Emma, and hanging out at the Bergs, doing crafts- my favorite!
On the morning of the 24th, we opened presents at Gramma and Poppa's.
I like how Adeline is perfectly modeling her gift tag here.
I sure hope this girl doesn't grow up to hate owls, because I've certainly surrounded her with them.
In the Christmas mug. Once Gladdy saw that we were taking her picture, he announced it to the living room and soon it was like Charlotte was on the red carpet. But there were so many people there to make her smile!
The second half of Christmas Eve was spent at my mom's house with the Duckhorn's.

Charlotte got this hat for Christmas that I am obviously in love with.
And my stepdad's cousin's 11 year old son, Eddie, who lives fairly close to us and we visit from time to time (we went to their house when Charlotte was just a few days old) crocheted her this sweet blanket! So cute!
Christmas morning we all (Kyle, Charlotte, Mom, Bill, Amy, Pete, and I) went over to my Dad and Patti's for breakfast and presents.
I have no pictures of opening presents at my mom's, for some reason, but Charlotte got some pretty sweet toys- including tons of Veggie Tales movies! I was so excited to watch them myself! For the rest of Christmas day, we had my stepdad's family over to my mom's. She made her usual enormous, delicious display of appetizers (of which I ate FAR too many). The next day her and I went day after Christmas shopping- our favorite thing to do together- and got some great deals!
