Christmas Celebration #2 ~ In the Rock

After we finished the Christmas morning festivities, we got the kids dressed and headed to the Rock (the nickname for Daddy's hometown of Rockingham) for Christmas with Grandma and Great-Grandpa.  We all met for an appetizer style lunch in Hamlet and some more gift opening before going to Great-Grandpa's for present opening with Grandma.  Daddy's family has grown so much that we have to meet at Great-Aunt Dava's Women's Club instead of someone's house.  The kids always have a great time together.

Great-Grandpa smiling for the camera while he opens his presents from everyone.  He had a tough year with his health, but I think he looked great at Christmas and was very happy to be with everyone.  He loves watching all of his great-grandchildren playing.

All of the kids enjoyed watching Evan playing on the kindle.

We all bring miscellaneous gifts every year and usually play a lively game of "Dirty Santa."  I brought this cute and girly apron this year that I found at Home Goods.  I thought one of the younger women would like it.  Aunt Dava switched the game this year to one where we have to move the gifts around the circle to a Christmas story to see who ends up with what gift.  Uncle Garry LOVED his apron!  Haha!  The funny thing is he does really enjoy cooking, but I am sure he prefers a more masculine apron.  Luckily, cousin Hudson traded him to give the apron to his girlfriend.

We enjoyed chatting with Great-Grandpa.

The boys just love Grandma.  Brody has finally started saying Grandma recently, and he ask for her often.

Grandma has always been one of Evan's favorite people.

  1. What a fun get together! The apron you picked out is super cute..even if your Uncle got it. ha! The picture of Brody with his hand under his chin is way too cute!!!

  2. I love the picture of Brody with his hand on his chin. And that apron is awesome! You could have sent it to me instead because you know I have a love affair with aprons :)

  3. We are having a very late Christmas get-together with friends this weekend. That apron would be perfect for our girft exchange! I will have to check out Home Goods.
