We ate breakfast...again! Then opened presents from Santa. Here are a few of the funny gifts from the day..
Kayli, Chase, and Abby all call my dad "Pappy." We don't really know where the name came from. Kayli came up with it when she was a baby. Anyway, when Ben and I were shopping, we saw these and couldn't help but buy them! hahaha We LOVE to buy people funny "gag" gifts..It makes for such a fun morning. Don't worry we did buy him a real present too!We just couldn't resist! A man thong that said "Papi!" Although it wasn't spelled right, it was still so funny!
This next one is of Ben with a present that my mom bought him. It was a hat that she thought would be great for him to wear when he runs to keep warm! I have never laughed so hard in my entire life... everyone was laughing. Even her. Needless to say, it was the first gift we took back to exchange.
One of my favorite traditions ever year, is that my sister takes my neice and nephew to the dollar store and lets them pick out a present for everyone. It is so great to see what they pick out because they put so much thought into what they buy. This year, she actually asked me and Ben to take them to the store. It was SO much fun! Ben and I split up, one with each kid, and let them pick out their gifts. When I was with Chase, he said " OOO.. This is so cool! I'm getting this for Ben! He will love this!" Wonder what it was?
A poster of the Incredible Hulk! hahaha Chase was so proud of it! We all thought it was so funny! Sweet little Chase! What a great memory!
This is their daughter, and my neice, Kayli.
And this is my brother and Tiffany, as she opens a purse from my mom and dad.
After we finished at my house, we went back to Ben's house for a lovely Christmas dinner prepared by his mom and dad. They pull out his mom's china, and we enjoyed a nice dinner with the family. It was so good! After that, we then went to my grandparents house to open presents. We ate dinner again!!, then opened more presents. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera to both Ben's house and my grandmothers house, so no pictures to share! After my grandparents, we headed back to Ben's house to enjoy a little more family time, and then later back to my house to crash! I think I fell asleep the second my head hit the pillow!
As you can see, it was a BUSY day and we were EXHAUSTED by the end of it. Not to mention our stomachs were SO full! We ate so much! However, it was a GREAT first Christmas together! Tomorrow I'll post a picture of our first Christmas tree, and a few of my favorite gifts.
