Christmas Post Part Two

Let's see where did I leave off from the Christmas Post numero uno... After we got E in bed after her fun filled first day of Christmas soon it was time for the second day. She got up at about the same time as she always does - I think it would not matter if we put her in bed at 10 pm or 7 pm she would still be up around 7 am (which is why bedtime is most definitely before 7 pm). Anyways, it was off to Jibbe's house for Christmas with Lee's side of the fam. Lee had to be there early (of course) because he was heavily involved in meal prep (shocker : ). Before all the craziness no no no cousins got there we opened some presents.

E checking out her stocking... Only to find yogurt puffs which are her fav!

Very excited about Goofy
 Probably should do a side note here... E has had little exposure to the Wide World of Disney (which I am sure she will have more eventually - but on the diapers that are at Jibbe's house Mickey and others are on the diaps. We get the Sam's Club brand diapers which just have wildlife scenes on them but the Pampers (I think) have Mickey and his crowd. So E knows who Goofy is (why she picked him out of Mickey and Pluto and Minnie - I do not know) and hence the large Goofy stuffed animal.

New little bike for our great new driveway

I have no idea who she looks like in this pic!

Helping Mama unwrap (just to prove I was there)
 Then the rest of the fam started coming which was awesome because E loves her cousins. Especially S - who oddly enough is 21 months older than E (which is how far apart E and baby K #2 will be). Also, she and AR (love to color) - it must be a girl thing.

Ms. Barbara. Family friend... Soon to be godmother of baby #2...

S and E on the toybox.

Snuggling two great things - the NiNi and the toybox!
Cousin pic from 2010!!! Oh my goodness they are getting so big!!!

100% Obligatory cousin pic
The above photo was 100% necessary and we have 1.5 hundred outtakes of this pic. Why? Because The three older cousins, R, S #1 and W had a similar pic take maybe 8ish years ago. Thus E and S #2 needed this pic. AR is a bit too old now to find getting in the toybox fun so unfortunately we missed out on her toybox pic. Now, about this getting in the toybox. We were over at Jibbe's the other day and E is banging on the top of the toybox and pointing and saying 'in in'. Big cousins teaching little cousins about the necessities in visits to Jibbe's = love that E has cousins her age!

To wrap this post up, dinner was a success. Sweet potatoes were a much needed improvement from Turkey Day, beef was great even though there was some confusion surround the temp probes and the cookies that we made for the 12 days of Christmas were a big hit. I let E have one (without the Hershey kiss) but in its place I loaded her up on some whip cream which she proceeded to lick off and ask for more (and more and more and more). I am proud to admit she definitely got that from me!
