Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas Eve at Andrew's parents' house. We started out with a yummy Swedish meal, and then Santa (grandpa) made an appearance with gifts for all the grandkids. Chloe and Ella were not too excited to see Santa there.....They did not leave the protection of their daddies until Santa left the room!

It was fun to see Chloe open all her gifts. Last year she was too young to understand how to open presents, and this year she tore into them!

Her big gift this year from Grandma and Grandpa was a play kitchen! Chloe loves play kitchens at her friends' houses, and I knew she would love having one of her own!

When Chloe saw the picture, she was so excited and kept saying "chicken." Apparently "kitchen" is a word we need to practice!!

Grandma reading books to Devin and Chloe. By this point in the evening, Chloe was over tired and overstimulated and spent much of her time crying and melting down. It took us 30-45 minutes to get her to calm down enough to fall asleep so that the adults could open our presents. It was a fun, but exhausting, evening!!!
