Then it was off to church and home in time for my grandparents, my mom and my sister and her daughter to come over for a small Christmas celebration.
Since it was in the afternoon, my mom just brought some desserts for everyone. Then we exchanged a few presents.
Toward the end of the afternoon, Carson and Emma were really quiet, and this is how I found them...
curled up on our bed watching the iPad.
Just before my grandparents left, I did manage to get all of the great grandkids out on the porch for a group photo.
Everyone was very anxious for Christmas to get here, and this was the perfect start to the gift exchanging.
