Christmas Day

Lil' D woke up Christmas morning to find our Santa did indeed visit our house.
Lil' D enjoyed his new car for awhile. Then we sang Happy Birthday to Jesus (with Lil' D's accompaniment) and a few other Christmas carols before we opened a few presents at our house. Then we got dressed and headed over to Nicholas' parents house.
Yummy breakfast treats! Thankfully this Dertien clan was feeling all better after a sick Christmas Eve!
Lil' D was a big helper opening everyone's presents!
The only present Lil' D gave away before it was opened. "It's a cup, GranBo!"

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve didn't exactly work out this year the way we had planned. Lil' D was sick Monday night and Mommy and Daddy both fell victim on Tuesday. We stayed in all day and were not able to host Christmas Eve or go to Christmas Eve worship. Lil' D was better during the day and did not get sick again. My excitement for the day was almost passing out in the checkout line in the grocery store and spending a little time in an ambulance. I avoided a trip to the ER, and all was well, but was pretty much out the rest of the day. Nicholas fell victim around 2pm, but quickly recovered by the evening. Thankfully we were all feeling better by Christmas morning! This was the second year in a row that Lil' D was sick on Christmas Eve. I hope that's not a tradition we keep!
We were all sad not to be able to cook and have a festive Christmas Eve, but we did manage to squeeze in on special Christmas Eve event. Lil' D sprinkled magic reindeer food on our lawn for Santa's reindeer.
And then Santa visited our house!

Christmas in Dallas

We spent the weekend before Christmas at my parents house. 
Lil' D had a great time playing with all his cousins. We had breakfast at Panera on Saturday morning, and then celebrated Christmas at my parents.
Lots of Auntie time
Dance Party!

Fun times trying to get a group photo!
