We celebrated Christmas at our house a little early with some presents from us to the kids. Andrew got a play kitchen with accessories, two kinds of blocks and some books. Clara got some stuffed toys and an electronic toy to stand up next to.
The next day we flew to Michigan to spend the holiday at Nana and Papa's house. Grandpa and Grandma came to visit, as well as Uncle Devin and Aunt Kathleen. We got to visit with dear Michigan friends and family, including Great Grandparents and the W Family.
Mama's ankle was still very broken. I was non-weight-bearing, so I spent most of the visit on the couch like this:
The highlight of the gifts was a collaboration by both sets of grandparents... a big, riding excavator. Andrew gasped when Papa brought it down the stairs and exclaimed "DIRT! DIRT!"
The grandpas helped Andrew take the excavator for a spin in the snow.
Papa also took Andrew out to see the BIG diggers. Talk about Andrew heaven!
We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you have a blessed new year!
