Christmas

On Christmas morning, I woke up to Beezy's mom more excited to see what Santa brought her than anyone. We thought we'd wake up super early to open gifts but in reality we didn't and it was his mom waking us up to open presents. Once we got up we realized Santa had indeed paid us a visit.
 True Lies photo from the original press kit! We love that movie.
 
Beezy smelling his new shoes. He loves the smell of new shoes.
 
Once we opened up gifts from Santa, Beezy's mom has all of her grandkids come over. Beezy has a sister who produced a very large family.
Can you guess which one is his sister? After they left we headed out to spend the evening and Christmas dinner with his family. We were all anticipating the White Elephant game.
 
 We love our photo bomber...
 The tree at his cousin's house...
In their family, if you get a gift card, you place it on the tree as an ornament before it's given out. I had actually never seen that done before. I thought it was a clever idea.
Opening gifts. You can see the excitement on people's faces. Then as the evening wore down we all started to get tired. We had all been going non stop for days. The party ended at 3:00 a.m. and clearly there was a casualty...
We had a really nice Christmas and we feel incredibly blessed. Not only were we fortunate enough to get presents, we were blessed to be surrounded by people who care. It was a very nice day.
