Christmas with the Grandparents

We were able to celebrate with both sets of grandparents over the Christmas holiday. We left town right when I was done subbing and made it just in time before the big snowstorm. We spent a few days with each side. Having both families within an hour of each other is a blessing, but it also makes it hard because we feel obligated to see everyone during the holidays. We seem to wear ourselves out with all the traveling, but it is always great to see everyone. Here are pictures from both celebrations.

Katie's Family Christmas:

Orin by a few of his gifts...he's pretty spoiled by his grandparents!!

My mom and dad had this canvas painting done for Orin. It was the big highlight!

Auntie Molls and Uncle Benny think Orin's pretty special!

Decorating sugar cookies

Making a cement stepping stone with his little feet

As you can see, we had a blast spending time with all of our family. Orin was kissed and loved on a lot! He got much better at pulling himself up to a standing position and he is now a very speedy crawler! He also started clapping and sticking out his tongue.

Tomorrow, we have Christmas with my Grandparents. Orin will be meeting Santa!! Can't wait to see how he reacts.
