As usual we spent Christmas Eve with my Dad and his side of the family.
We went to my Dad’s house in the afternoon for drinks, appetizers, and gift exchanging.
The gifts were mostly wine and gift cards! The best kinds! Except for Eleanor, of course!
She got an awesome Tinkerbell doll, which she is already obsessed with! And a rad Tinkerbell backpack!
After my Dad’s we headed to my Aunt’s house for dinner with the extended family. I managed to get my cousins to wrangle all their girls together for a second-cousins photo! It took forever to get them all together. The bigger girls were very cooperative, but Eleanor and Mia (who is just 4 months older that Eleanor) were partners in crime and kept escaping every time we put them in place!
We had to take a separate boys second-cousins photo because it was so difficult to get the girls to cooperate.
Until this visit Eleanor and Mia had pretty much ignored each other at every family function. Christmas Eve they finally discovered each other and immediately became the very best of friends!
