Christmas in Oklahoma

We made our way to Oklahoma the Saturday after Christmas to spend some time with Chris' side of the family. His parents had a lovely mexican dinner prepared for the festivities. Chris' brother, Josh and his wife Lauren even were able to make it home from Florida to spend some much needed family time. My dad and Sherry also came over to eat the food that Mark prepared for the Army, but they didn't show! haha! It was really good though!

The princess had lots of presents to open! Her grandparents absolutely spoiled her! She got her very own digital camera, a piano, a couple of games, barbies, a book, a bowling set, and a stocking full of goodies!! Uncle Josh and Aunt Lauren got her a game called Elefun. It's an elephant with a 4 foot truck that shoots butterflies out and you have to catch them with nets. It's a fun game and I would recommend it to those of you with pre-schoolers!

Here are a few pics from the evening....






Aleeyah absolutely loves playing with her grandparents. I took a couple of pictures while Aleeyah and her Mimi were playing instruments after church on Sunday! Now, I don't quite understand how you play a piano on your head, but apparently Mimi knows what she is doing! haha!



Really, Aleeyah has a great time with them and has a hard time when we leave. In fact, once we made it home on Tuesday, Aleeyah asked if Mimi and Papa were coming over. When I told her no they weren't she said, Ohhhh, we are going over to Mimi and Papa's house? Sadly, no kid but they are planning on coming up again in another month or two-which is like 10 years for a 3 year old.

I think everyone had a great time and we are already looking forward to seeing each other again!

Okay, I've gotta admit it. When you listed all the presents some elves had put together for the princess - oooo! I guess she was a realllly good lil girl this year, and perhaps mimi hadn't realized that mimi had gone just a bit overboard. okay, maybe just a teensy lil bit...
