Despite the crazy year and all its challenges all I really wanted was to have Christmas with my Grandson. 18 months is a magical age and the day went beautifully. The key, by the way, with kids this age is to let them go at their own pace and to not get caught up in any one particular thing. Plus naps…a long nap is essential for a happy day 🙂
Since my son-in-law was working Christmas Eve we went over and helped Kyrston put some presents together. I have been wrapping presents for a long time, but even I was challenged by the trampoline. It turned out OK though!

It was amazing for us all to be together in some small way even more because my second daughter Kat (in Minneapolis) officially announced she was pregnant!!! All her tests look great and she had passed the 12 week mark which was a wonderful Christmas present in and of itself.
After presents we had a fantastic meal of Prime Rib and tons of side dishes. It was a lovely Christmas and we feel so blessed to get to spend it with Kyrston, Jeremy, and
