This year Santa brought Payton a dolly with a highchair, stroller, and bassinet. When she saw them she beelined for them and started playing. About a half an hour later we were begging her to open some of her other gifts. About an hour later Dave finally opened another one of her gifts and showed it to her. If we would have only known. It took her about 3 days before she even looked in her stocking and another day to open all of her presents.
We spent the majority of the day at my parents house. When we got there they had a yummy breakfast of french toast waiting for us. I love french toast! Then we all got together and opened our stockings. This tradition has sort of evolved over the years. My mom puts together a stocking, which is really a big Christmas gift bag for each person. It is always fun to watch her try and figure out what everyone needs/wants.
After round one of opening presents we cleaned up and got ready for additional "family" to join us for Christmas dinner. Funny story about the dinner. One of the things we had was Tri-Tip, usually this is one of our fall back dinner items. They have always turned out delicious. And I was definately looking forward to eating it. Well, let's just say it was "well done". When Dad pulled it off the grill jen asked if it had gotten a little burned but he kept trying to say that it was fine and just to cut off the outside. Well, when he tasted it I think he realized how done it was. Hee! Hee!
Payton certainly was spoiled. Between all the grandmas, great grandmas, her aunties and uncles, and mom and dad she really brought in the loot. Lucky girl!
I really do love the Christmas Season and I am always sad to see it go.
