Also known as my youngest sister’s 18th birthday, we spent the evening hanging with my family and ringing in a new decade… And a new birthday.

Everyone was pretty tired yesterday, and with Mel sick most of the day was spent hanging out and resting. But last night Bree got 12 hours of sleep and was eager to play with her new toys this morning. So we set up her table and she played for a LONG time with her new cooking toys.

Merry Christmas everyone! Here’s hoping that your holiday finds you well and that Christmas is a fitting and happy end to this decade for your family.

We started this year’s Christmas festivities by opening our gifts to and from each other on Christmas Eve, Bree had a blast, and loves her vacuum cleaner and guitar, in particular. I’m either going to have to get her used to the keyboard or get Chip to give her guitar lessons, we’ll see. 😉

Christmas day started with Bree playing with all the gifts that Santa brought, her favorites appeared to be her hair dryer and the huge bag of play balls we got her for her play gym.

Next we headed to Mel’s parents house for breakfast and some early Christmas fun. The breakfast was (as always) awesome and got our stomachs in gear for a full day of overindulgence.

After breakfast we headed to my parent’s house to hang out until a late lunch. Bree got her sunglasses early and loved them, along with what will undoubtedly not be her last encounter with cheese balls. After a relaxing lunch we headed downstairs for the traditional gift exchanging, a good time was had by all.

Once gifts were exchanged, it was time to head back to Mel’s parent’s house for gifting and dinner. Upon arrival Bree was introduced to Pimento Cheese… She loves it. After many spoonfuls of Pimento Cheese were consumed we exchanged gifts, watching the kids open their present is tooo much fun.

Then came dinner, where we decided that maybe Bree was big enough to graduate from the high chair to the kid’s table. She was having a blas right up until she fell head first from the chair. She’s fine, of course, but not nearly as big of a fan of the kid’s table as she once was.

After dinner it was time for reminiscing, catching up and eventually wishing everyone well. In the end, it was another wonderful Christmas with the Garvichs.

Merry Christmas everyone!
