My family does most of our celebrating on Christmas Eve. I’m not sure exactly why this happened, but I’m not complaining. Melissa, Chris, Wade, and I spent Friday night at my dad’s house. Madison woke up at 6:30 (yuck) but wasn’t too excited about going out to the bathroom. My dad has three big dogs and they were a little intimidating for Madison. She cowered between my legs and then leapt into my arms. I was amused.
We had a wonderful breakfast with Dad, Laura, and Laura’s dad Ken. Did I mention there were cheese grits? Yum. Then we opened gifts – Wade got the tiny video camera he has been drooling about.
We left my dad’s and headed for my mom’s. There the madness ensued. Mom was excited to have us all home for Christmas and we were excited to be there. Madison had fun too!
