It finally felt like Christmas! On Friday, the kids and I headed to Peoria during naptime (which proved not helpful since neither took a nap on the way :) We arrived to this beautiful new version of a Christmas tree. My dad loves birch trees, so this huge birch branch fits them perfectly.
Friday afternoon and evening, we just hung out with Uncle Philip, Kara, and G&G. William also arrived after he got off work. Owen got to open one present before going to bed! Thank you Uncle Philip for my cool t-ball set!

And I might embarrass my dad with this short one, but this is so classic "dad." He breaks into song quite regularly and it was fun to see the 3 guys jamming out together.

Then it was time for adult presents. Of course, my mom went overboard and spoils us rotten as usual and we needed another van to take all our loot home.
Sunday, we went to church which is always a blast and then that evening (after William left for home), my grandma and grandpa came over for dinner. Owen has been pretty attached to my grandpa and he took him from room to room showing him around and wanted to sit with him at dinner.

Thanks mom and dad for an amazing Christmas and for loving our kiddos so well. We are so lucky to have you as parents. And welcome to the first family Christmas Kara! :)
