We had a fun Christmas at home this year with my parents. My sister was in Grand Junction with Russ's family and my brother was with his fiance Natalie (Congratulations David!) and her family. We decided that we didn't want to travel with 1-year old twins around the holidays, so even though it's the year to visit the in-laws, we didn't make it out to see Brian's family (sorry!)
I spent the day of Christmas Eve baking with my mom. It was so nice to be able to spend some quality time together. It seems like whenever I see her I have the kids and we're too busy chasing them around to get a chance to talk! On Christmas Eve Brian brought the kids over to my parent's house and we had a big Italian dinner (Plowman family tradition). We made minestone, spaghetti and meatballs, salad, garlic bread, and lots of treats. So good!

On Christmas morning my parents came over to our house to have breakfast and open presents. They gave Nick and Alli a little table and chairs set. We gave Alli a doll and a purse and Nick got books about cars, a squishy ball, and hand puppets, among other things. I got a new camera! It will be so nice to have my own little camera. Brian bought a big camera a few years ago and it takes great pictures, but its a bit much to carry around everywhere.
Alli couldn't wait to open presents on Christmas morning!
Nick loved his new table and chairs!
In the afternoon we went to Berthoud and had dinner with my grandparents. My grandpa was recovering from back surgery and was using a walker to get around the house. Nick thought he hit the jackpot. He loved pushing it around everywhere!

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas too! Happy New Year!!!
