Christmas 2010

We had a really nice Christmas this year. Christmas Eve we went over to my parents house for dinner and gifts.

Audia loves her Grandma and Grandpa so much. She had a lot of fun reading with both of them, and doing puzzles with Grandma while Grandpa and Daddy made dinner.

Christmas Eve dinner has been the same since I can remember. We always have Swedish Meatballs, Mashed potatoes, Gravy, Lingonberries, and Green Beans.

Audia got a truckload of wonderful gifts (we did too!) Among her favorites seem to be her doctor's kit and kitchen.

Christmas morning was spent at the apartment, just the three of us. Audia suprisingly slept in until 8:30. She had been asking about Santa coming every night for weeks, so when we finally told her that "tonight's the night!" on Christmas Eve, I was sure that she would have trouble sleeping and get up super early. I guess her sleeping in was a Christmas gift to us!
Santa brought her all kinds of fun goodies, and we also opened gifts from Chris' parents that morning.
After Audia's nap (which was much needed after all that present-opening,) we went back over to my parents to relax and have our traditional Prime Rib dinner. Yum!

Overall, we had a very joyous Christmas. Audia is still talking about Santa and asking when we're going to go over to Grandma and Grandpa's to open more presents. I think it will take a while for it to set in that there won't be any more gifts until Easter!
