Christmas morning started early with stockings and pictures with the Muchows. Charlie and I had to hit the road first thing to get to the Hilen's for brunch. We made great time flying up I5 and had a fantastic breakfast. Hilen family tradition includes Christmas lotto scratch tickets. Charlie and I each won $8, but Jeffery was the big winner with a $20 ticket.
We then opened presents and were even further spoiled. We got a REALLY nice camera, so expect the quality of the blog pics to improve. Charlie's cousin's family came over for dinner. There were 5 children under the age of 7 roaming around. They were EXHAUSTING! As they tore through their presents, Charlie leaned over to me and whispered "we're not ready." I couldn't agree more.
Although I ate a ridiculous amount of food (Becky's homemade snickers, chips and dip, chocolate and caramel turtle cookies, a huge chicken dinner, etc) and didn't exercise at all, I enjoyed a fantastic day with family and hope you did to!
