2010 Christmas Festivities.

On Christmas Eve, we went to my parent's house for our annual Fondue Christmas dinner.

After dinner, we opened stockings from Mimi and Poppy. After dinner, we all parted ways. On our way home we stopped by a house that was mentioned in our local paper for claiming to have the biggest Christmas lights display in town. Not sure if it was true, but we did enjoy looking at the lights.


On Christmas morning, Charlie slept in until 7:30 am which was an excellent gift for us. After he got up and we gave him a bottle, we got down to business.

 Have I mentioned Charlie likes to climb on his presents?
 After we opened our gifts, we headed over to my sister's to exchange presents and have breakfast.
From this angle, you would never know I didn't have makeup on.

After breakfast, we headed back home to get ready for our 20 dinner guests.

The next morning we went to my inlaws to exchange gifts and Charlie was spoiled, again. He is one lucky boy. We are trying to space out the new gifts and do a new toy every few days. We'll see how long that lasts.

We had a good Christmas and I think Charlie's first Christmas was a success. A bit hectic at times, but a good day.
