Christmas in the Thumb 2011

My sister was in Michigan for Christmas so we made the trek north on Christmas Day to see everyone.

The amount of presents was enormous. We began the festivities around 2:05 p.m.



We took the first intermission at 3:05 p.m. We had potty breaks, dessert and beverages. 


We took the second intermission at 4:30 p.m. and Avery was kaput by then. 


The gift opening stopped around 5:20 p.m. But the festivities didn't stop there. We played games and had more snacks. And then after all of that we opened MORE gifts for Rachel's birthday. I'm exhausted just typing about it! 

Here are some additional photos of the holiday event! 




Avery just applied chap stick and then I took this photo. I think I need to suggest to her mom that Avery needs clear chap stick. 


Her last and favorite Christmas gift was the baby stroller. 

And after it was all done, Avery asked me to build her a tent. Since all of the chairs were being used at the table for games, snacking, coffee and visiting, we had to improvise.
