We rang in the New Year with my parents and were finally able to exchange our Christmas presents since we were unable to get together on Christmas day. Chris made it a very joyous occasion by spoiling us all with grilled lobster and prawns. (It is becoming quite the perk to be married to a grill-master.) He also did a great job stuffing my parent's stockings for them and the kids had fun being the elves and handing out presents.
And believe it or not, everyone made it to midnight! And then we all went straight to bed. Here is Lia enjoying her Melissa and Doug cookie set. The penguin bath toys were a big hit too.
She has her oven mitt on here... "Cookies are hot when they come out of the oven."
