Christmas Eve 2011

Christmas Eve brought more company to our house; Aunt Beth, Grandma Debbie & Poppy and Great Aunt Martha and Uncle Phil.

The grandpas eating our Christmas Eve tamales, rice and beans.
Becky and I and tons of cookies!
Ally telling Aunt Beth a secret.l Beth was as usual an amazing Aunt. She knows just when to play with Ally, when to give her space, and when we need a break. Thank you for all of your help. We are so lucky that you live relatively close and that you and Ally are so close.
Ally made her own pick to play the ukulele with.
My mom and her sister, Aunt Martha
Mama and Ally
Grandma Debbie and Ally made reindeer food.
we had a bit of an accident when the container opened up while being shaken and reindeer food sprayed all over the kitchen!
After putting out the food for the reindeer, Ally watched Rudolph one last time with Grandma and Beth on our bed.
Then it was time for a sing a long
Aunt Martha brought some carol song books and we sang just about every Christmas carol we could think of. Ally loved it!
Then Poppy read Twas the Night Before Christmas
All of the family left then for their hotels, and Ally posed with all of the stockings. Yes there were 11 stockings - one for every person who would be at our house Christmas morning.
She also put out cookies for Santa and an ornament that she made him. She dictated the note to be left for him.
