Last night, we had a little Christmas gathering at my sister's house so we could see Brenna Rose, her step-daughter, and celebrate Christmas with her. Brenna and Alyssa were exchanging gifts for the cousin gift exchange. They were so excited...can you see it in their faces?
Alyssa opened her gift first. Brenna gave Alyssa an accessory kit for her American Girl outfit that Todd & Trisha gave her for her birthday. Now, that was planning!
Next, Brenna opened her gift from Alyssa and it was a flannel blanket that Alyssa and I worked on together. Brenna loved her new blanket and from what I hear, she slept with it on her bed last night and currently has it on her bed, covering up her comforter. I am so glad she likes it!
Once the two girls were finished opening gifts, Brenna had a few more gifts to open from my mom and Duane. We are sad that Brenna won't be with us for Christmas this year but glad that we were able to spend some time with her last night. The kids all had so much fun playing together and were sad when we had to leave.
Ethan was our entertainment for the evening. Once Brenna had finished opening her gifts, the kids had all headed upstairs while the adults visited for awhile. Next thing we knew, this little guy popped his head up over the stairway banister.
He was so funny! And, the more we laughed at him the funnier he got.
It was a great evening!
