My mom and my grandma came to visit us for Christmas. The first day was great while they were here. We baked bread and granola and visited all day long. The second day, they both got the flu that had hit our family just before they came. I felt sooooooooooooooooooooooo bad!!! And they each had it much worse than any of us did. But, thankfully, it passed. My kids so thoroughly enjoyed the rare visit from my grandma. They love how much she loves them.
On Christmas Eve, my mom put on a Christmas Play with the kids. The boys got to be shepherds and wisemen and the girls were the angels.
After that, we made a gingerbread house.
And after watching our Nativity DVD, the kids each got to open one present - their Christmas jammies.
We spent the morning leisurely opening presents and playing with the new toys.
After all of the presents were opened, we showed the kids one last surprise we had hiding in the basement.
They were pretty excited to say the least.
After spending some time with Brett's family, we came home for some snow machine rides. It was the first time my mom had ever been on one.
It was a pretty great Christmas!
