the day after christmas...

on christmas night, cousins terri and trevor spent the night with us just like last year. terri played with the girls as they had their very own slumber party where jay played xbox in the man cave with trevor, and auntie jess roamed throughout. the next morning, we all woke up to more snow continuing to fall. it was beautiful. everyone played with their christmas loot and had fun just being silly. here are some pics...later that night, nan invited us all over for dinner at her house since it was uncle ian and gang's last night here in town before they drove back home to chicago. nan made pot roast stew and it was perfectly delicious to eat on such a cold winter day. i believe more than half of us were all starting to catch the crud that had been going around so the warm comfort food was a plus. the kids ate at the kids table in the kitchen while all the adults ate in the dining room. after dinner, we all cuddled up on the couches in the den and watched the toy story marathon that was on tv. we talked, laughed, and then nan let the kids pick out a candy-filled penguin that was located on her fireplace mantle. it was a great ending to a busy weekend filled with family and festivities.
