On Christmas day we headed to Philadelphia to celebrate Christmas with the other side of our family. I think this is the first year that I haven't been at my parent's house during December until Christmas day. It was my first time to see it decorated this year. My parent's have a party every year and I missed it for the first time this year because it was the day we left for Brownsville. So, better a little late than never I guess :)
I was soooo happy to see my sister. I am pretty sure we have seen each other less in 2011 than any year since she was born. I have missed her!
We had a great supper after we opened presents. I didn't get a good picture of Emerson because unfortunately he didn't feel very well. :(
On Monday afternoon Pop, Grams, Reagan, Robert, Ellington, and I went bowling. Philadelphia recently got a bowling alley. It was a fun outing especially since it rained all day Christmas day and all day Monday!
Even though Ellington has been bowling with us a couple of times this is the first time she has actually bowled too. She used the handicap ramp and LOVED it. In fact, she threw a little fit just about every time that her turn was over.
After bowling we went to eat Mexican and when we got home Reagan made cookies and I made homemade hot chocolate. Yum! What a fun way to wrap up Christmas!
We got home on Tuesday and were EXHAUSTED, but we had a great Christmas!
