Brendan reading the Christmas story

We had such a good Christmas. We spent the morning at Grandma and Grandpa's and opened gifts and had a yummy breakfast. After lunch we made our weekly trip to the Nursing Home and sang a few Christmas songs. And when I say a few, I mean that literally. We sang the same three over and over-I think we need to teach our children some more Christmas songs. After naps, we headed back to Grandma and Grandpa's for dinner and dessert. So nice to just relax. And to top it off, Kylie decided to walk! She's taken a few steps, but now she's really walking. I'll try to post a video soon.

Grandma and Grandpa's gift to Brendan: a telescope. We have been studying astronomy this year, so we're excited to see what we see!

Brendan chose this present for Mackenzie. It's pink with kitties-I think he knows his sister well.

And likewise, Mackenzie knows her brother well and got him a bug vacuum. I think it's a silly invention, but he sure loves it.

Grandpa and Mackenzie building legos. You should have heard her "direct" him.

By far, Kylie's favorite gift: the box from Brendan's telescope.

Her other favorite gift: Brendan's Wall-E that she chased around

Mackenzie dancing in her new ballet dress (which she won't take off)

Singing at the rest home
