We spent Christmas at Joe's since everyone else from Florida and their families were visiting siblings up north and out west to have "snow" experiences. Do the boys look happy in their Christmas Eve pj's?
How about grandma and baby Tatum?
After everyone went to bed, Santa came down the chimney and filled the room with presents.
Each of the children put out a shoe to see if Santa knew the Hungarian custom of filling the shoes of good boys and girls. It looks like he did!
Santa couldn't find grandma's shoes to fill so she got a new pair of "I love ponies" slippers made by Heather.
Grandma was excited that Tatum got her first Christmas doll.
Kim got our name for Christmas. She gave grandpa tools and a tool belt to encourage him to get busy building the new log cabin. Grandma got gardening tools to landscape the new place and plant our new organic garden.
The Wilcox kids gave us mugs for drinking hot cocoa on the porch of our new place on cool winter mornings.
Of course, we all enjoyed running around in our new pjs all day on Christmas.
Joseph and I even had time for a quick game of chess while eating pumpkin ice cream!
Chrissy decided that since she had only one two week visit from us this year when Owen was blessed and we painted their new house, while grandma and grandpa had visited everyone else two or three times, she needed to come down to Florida from Minnesota so her kids could see grandma and grandpa and ride horses...
learn some farm chores...
and try out some new Florida fruits.
With a quick trip to Savannah ...
we ate Filipino food at Joe's place...
and fought pirates ...
and super heroes.
When it was all done, grandpa was ready for a rest.
