Our first part of the kids' Christmas break was filled with fun and festive Christmas activities...we saw a movie, made crafts, baked, delivered treats to the neighbors (the kids love to load up the wagon and deliver these with daddy)and spent time with friends, eating and taking in the sights of Christmas! It was our year to spend Christmas with the Neese side. On Christmas Eve, we went to church and then celebrated with cousins, aunts and uncles at Grandma & Grandpa Neese's house. We had a leisurely Christmas morning at home before heading back to Grandma & Grandpa's house, with our traditional breakfast-eggbake, cinnamon rolls and fruit, opened gifts & stockings and the kids enjoyed playing with ALL their new toys. The next day we packed up to drive south to spend time with my family in OC...more to come on those fun times on the next entry!
