This year it has worked out PERFECT… we were able to work everyone’s schedule so that we could spend Christmas with both families this year. Yep, that means that we got two big family Christmases! We headed down to Grandma and Grandpa Jones’ on thursday night to meet the whole family for a two night slumber christmas party with all the kiddos. It was so fun. The kids were crazy, running and playing and opening presents! It is so fun to see them play because I know they truly love eachothers company. They are the best of friends, especially the three oldest!
Grandma Ruth put pictures of everyone on the presents instead of tags so that the kids could pass out the presents and Bennett LOVED it. He proudly would go get a present from the tree, look at the picture and run to whoever it was for. He was very excited for each new present and he only spilled the beans about one of the presents that was from us… “Here’s your buffer Grandpa!” Too cute!
One very special present he got this year from Grandma and Grandpa is his record player. This record player Grandma got off eBay because they havent sold them is stores in 20+ years. It was exactly like the one that we had when we were little. We have many memories of listening to Ernie’s Tiger hunt from Sesame Street and running around our big room in the old house. Grandma and our Aunt Karla even found many mint condition records. Bennett is a little young to run it all by himself but since we got home today we have listened to many records and Bennett loves listening for the chime to turn the pages in his read a long books and was dancing to Winnie the Pooh’s Blustery Day. It is just like I remember!!!
We of course had the amazing prime rib dinner and spent many hours in the basement playing with the kids and visiting family… a perfect Christmas!
