Our first celebration was the week before Christmas (http://moorecraziness.blogspot.com/2011/12/christmas-1.html). We had a blast. For our second we headed to Melbourne to spend Christmas Eve day with Ryan, Ashley, and her family.
We headed down Friday night, Greg ended up getting out of work a little early so it worked out perfectly. We got there in time for dinner and then spent the rest of the night chatting (my favorite thing to do)! Time got away from us and we stayed up way later than I am used to. Addison had a rough time adjusting to sleeping in the room with us. She woke up at 4:30 and ate but then cried for a while after she finished, which is very unlike her. Needless to say Greg and I didn't get much sleep.
Christmas Eve day was a little different than one I had ever experienced. We went to a bar and watched football. It was a little weird bringing babies to a bar on Christmas Eve, but Addison loved watching football. She was zoned in. It was so cute. Aubrey had fun too, she was more into coloring with Grandma than watching the games (I don't blame her). After the games we exchanged gifts, and then ate an amazing dinner that Ashley had prepared. We had a great time, and it was so nice to meet Ashley's family. They are so funny and sweet! It was a wonderful celebration!

Finally ready to head to Grandmas!
Crazy amount of presents.
After the craziness!
She fell asleep for all of two minutes.
We then went to Greg's Mom's house for Christmas number four. Which is maybe the polar opposite of mine, very calm, very clean, but still fun. Aubrey loves the play room she has set up for the grand-kids, so she disappears as soon as we get there. We sat down as soon as everyone showed up and ate, the thing I love most about holidays is we get fed yummy food wherever we go! We opened gifts, chatted, and ended up staying until around 9 (maybe even 9:30, I can't remember for sure). Aubrey was still raring to go, but I was pooped. The girls hadn't napped and it was already two hours past Addison's bedtime and an hour past Aubrey's. So we called it a night.
Opening her kitchen. Thank goodness Grandma put it together for us!
We really are so blessed to have so much family to celebrate with. I absolutely love being crazy busy, so I didn't mind one bit going from place to place, I actually prefer it! Not many people get 5 Christmas's in one year!
She is SO excited, just look at that face!
Taking a break.
Using it as a chair, who knew it was so multipurposed.
