One Last Christmas

We hit the road this weekend to celebrate Christmas with my dad's family.  We headed out Friday afternoon and made great time!  Parker was a phenomenal traveler, as always.  I think having him forward facing makes it even easier!  We didn't have to break out the iPad until after dark!  He didn't take a nap nor sleep at all in the car and he still had energy when we arrived at 10:30.
 Then he woke up at 6 and climbed onto the air mattress with us!  We weren't getting him back to sleep so we were getting up.  We had a quick breakfast before running some errands and helping my grandma prep for dinner (which is the noon meal in Nebraska).  I even got a selfie with her! #grandmasfirstselfie
 We opened presents quick as well since my grandma wasn't able to come on Christmas day.  Parker even ripped one of the gifts open himself!
It was a great spread as always.  Four different soups, sandwiches and all the fixings.
Jimmy took a snooze after lunch while the rest of us played cards.
The cookie thief struck again too, but he has expanded to giant brownies!
It was such a fun day with a great group!
Nana even roped Parker into helping with dishes.
We ended the night with some relaxing tunes from Parker on the organ.
We has quite the adventure home too, but that will have to wait for the next post!


  1. This looks like so much fun! Between the good food and the games, I have a feeling it is a highlight every year :) Oh, and the #grandmasfirstselfie is hilarious!

    1. It definitely is a highlight! Hopefully there will be many more #grandmaselfies!
