And by recap, I mean share some pictures :)
First up: Wilson family Christmas at my parents house on Christmas Eve.
The cousins - this was the best of 10+ shots.
Traditional siblings + spouses picture
My cousin Ben got to join us from Sydney, Australia!
Awesome games from Mike & Linley
There was food and presents aplenty, with a few fun surprises, like this smoker for my brother...
And a beautiful wedding photobook for my parents from Jay & Christine
All in all, a perfect day.
Christmas morning we had to wake all three of our kids up to finally get things going! Russ and I cooked breakfast together and we had a nice slow morning taking our time opening gifts and enjoying everyone's reactions to everything.
"Let's take a picture in front of the tree", I said.
Funny thing... her gift started ringing as she opened it! We've always told our kids they won't get a cell phone until they're 16 and driving, so Kendall had no clue this was coming. We made it to 15 and a half so we decided it was close enough ;)
Blurry but adorable shot of Blake crying when he got his dream gift... a pair of heelys, haha.
After finishing up we got ready and then headed over to Russ's parents for Halverson family Christmas.
There were fun gifts...
(Yes, Russ asked for Roundup for Christmas.)
We had an awesome day, finishing up with a movie (Magnificent 7) and round two of Christmas dinner before heading home around 10pm.
Christmas is THE BEST. Hope yours was merry and bright!
