In the weeks leading up to Christmas this year, Natalie and I read a lot of books about Christmas and we talked some about Santa visiting and leaving some presents for her to open. She definitely seemed more excited about Christmas this year than ever before and she was much quicker to tear open her presents (and toss aside those that did not interest her which included most everything but her beloved books!). We had a great time celebrating with family and friends over several days. I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked but here are a few highlights:
The Grubb "kids"
I think we can still be considered kids since we are all still under 40!
My mom, Howard, and the grandkids
(kids L to R: Natalie, Kiernan, Carter, Lucy, Molly, Jack, Ronan)
Uncle Jason and Natalie watching Curious George on Christmas Eve
Natalie hugging her new dog Bouncy
Reading her new Olivia book (I think this may have been her favorite gift from Santa)
