Unfortunately around midnight we saw Brookston, as this is when he got sick, twice. Poor buddy! We obviously knew that the family Christmas would be cancelled at this point and were very glad we didn't talk up the family get together earlier in the day. I was very sad for the kids to miss Christmas with their cousins. But I knew we'd still make a great day out of it!
Nana, Papa, and Yiayia arrived a little after lunch time (from out of town). The kids were so excited to see them and we were especially excited to have the company since we had to cancel our family get together.
We ended up cooking a modified Christmas dinner. Our normal family holiday meals include everyone bringing a couple dishes. But since the get together was cancelled at our house, we didn't have everything. I think we made the best of it and had a decent dinner in the end!
After dinner with the 8 of us (Me, Richard, Brookston, Kaisley, Sutton, Nana, Papa, and Yiayia), we opened presents from Nana, Papa, and Yiayia, as well as the gifts from the family! (Richard drove by to drop off our stuff to the family and pick up the stuff for ours.) So, we got to do presents all over again!! But we really missed the family and all of the excitement of seeing everyone! :(And to wrap up Christmas...Grandpa made a special delivery on the 26th to deliver their present. WOW, how exciting to get this HUGE present. It was an outdoor playhouse, which is already getting some great use!
