So Christmas has come and gone, and what a time it was! Poppy and Olive had an event filled first Christmas, so I want to share some highlights with you. First, the order of events is important. Christmas Eve was spent at Grandmom Diane and Pop-pop Lewie's house. Guests included Uncle Danny, Aunt Karen, their kids Brandon and Dani, cousin Tim and his new fiancee Krista, cousins Tara and John and their kids Jake and Carson, and Aunt Linda and Uncle Dan. We had a wonderful dinner and exchanged gifts with the family. Christmas was also spent at Grandmom's house with side trips to cousin Tara's house and Aunt Linda's house. Unfortunately, Jill did not get to have a fun filled Christmas because she had to work :-( I know. Work on Christmas? Unfortunately, yes. Anyway, the day after Christmas, I drove to my sister Maria's house which was also jam packed! Guests were Grandmom Rosalie and Pop-pop Joe, my sister Nicki and her husband Jason, Great-grandmom Josephine, cousin Sara, and of course Maria, David, Shaefer, and Memphis (his first Christmas, too!) I spent the night there with Olive and Poppy, and we had a blast. Here are the pictures from the whole weekend. Enjoy!
