Best Christmas Ever!

Driving home from my parents Royce and I agreed, this was the best Christmas ever.

We had my family's get together on Christmas Eve. We shared the night with my parents, my Sister, her Husband and two daughters, my Brother, his expecting Wife and their daughter. The girls had so much fun it was a joy to watch them. My two younger nieces, Shaylah and Olivia, are four and two and it's fun for the twins to watch them play and try to play with them. Adia especially tries hard to be involved.

The girls enjoyed opening more presents and watching everyone else do the same. The highlight of their night was the big pile of spoons on the floor from our failed attempt to play a family game of spoons (which proved to be too difficult with the little ones, a small living room and all of us talking at the same time - hahaha).

Christmas Day I brought the girls back to my parents and they got their big presents from them....Cozy Coupes! We spent two and a half hours putting them together and the girls stood close to us trying to climb in before they were ready. It was hard for them to be patient and they seemed to instinctively know exactly what to do when we finally had them ready. It was so cute!

Now we're gearing up for the big birthday celebration. The twins turn ONE on January 2nd and they're having a birthday party on the 9th. It's going to be a fun celebration for all of us.
