The boys' favorite place to sit. Sam and Hank really hit it off.
Around 4:00 on December 23rd we arrived at Nana and Papa's house for Christmas. We were greeted with soup, cookies, caramel popcorn, rice crispy treats, and white chocolate covered pretzels - to name a few. That evening Zac and Emily left to go to Erlanger in Chattanooga to visit Zac's grandmother. So Nana, Papa, Michael and I wrangled the five (5) boys. Everything went pretty smoothly except for poor Cooper who had the flu. Mom and I waited too long to give him Tylenol so he was as miserable as I have ever seen anyone in my life. He was so sweet though.
The next morning, Christmas Eve, we woke up and had Christmas breakfast. Then it was time for the boys to open their presents. This year we decided to try letting the boys go one at a time. It actually worked out really well. They were all interested in what the other was opening.
Next we ate Christmas dinner. After dinner we loaded up and headed home. Once at home we let the boys play with their toys for a few minutes before putting them to bed.
For Christmas Eve, Michael and I rented a movie (Edge of Tomorrow) and ate cookies. It was so nice to sit quietly for a few hours. We went to bed around 1:00 excited for Christmas morning.
