Christmas Traditions : Christmas Day

Get ready for lots of pictures...
We always spend Christmas morning at my patent's house opening presents from Santa.  When we were younger, my Grandparent's always came over for brunch and we would get to show off our new presents.

Now that we're older, the traditions have to change to accommodate more people.  We opened a couple presents, ate breakfast, and opened the rest of the presents.

"If I could talk I would say I love my uncle Rob Dob!"
... she really does love her uncle Rob Dob
My grandmother (mom's mom) cross-stitched all of these stockings for us.  My mom has taken over for her and has made the stockings for the last year or so.  Cora got one of the original ones that was my mom's stocking growing up making it extra special... AND it's special because it was stitched by her grandma (the name) and her great grandma.
Cora and I hung around my parent's house for the day playing with her new toys and getting a nap in.  While Cora napped, I prepped a little for the dinner.

Christmas dinner with our extended family was at my parent's house and is more casual than our Christmas Eve event.  We just hang around, enjoy some hors d'oeuvres and drinks for a couple hours before the meal, share what Santa brought us, and watch some of the kids play with their new toys.  I didn't get any pictures, but I had a great time.  Cora was partied out so she spent a small portion of the party sleeping.
