We gathered at Paul's parents' house to celebrate Christmas yesterday morning. In the past 4 years, the holidays have progressively gotten busier as the kids get a little older each year.
Ella just got her fifth tooth. The one on the bottom right. Maybe the nonstop drooling will subside a bit.
Aunt Sara and Erick opening a gift.
Grace and Lydia are thrilled to give gifts this year. I can only dream that this behavior remains for many years to come. Grace and Lydia are anxiously waiting for Nona to open the gift that they chose for Nona.
Lydia is excited about getting fun books to read.
Jesse helped Ella open a couple of her gifts.

Nona modeling her beautiful makeup job. As much as Grace wanted Nona to share her makeup; I should have been relieved that Nona refused to share. It saved me having to wipe of the layers on flattering pink on her lips, cheeks and eyes.
Hugs, kisses and thank yous for everyone. Lydia & Aunt Sara
Grace & Uncle Jim
Lydia and Grandpa Pedersen
Grace thinks Colorwonders are pretty cool. She shows Grandpa how they work.
Lydia found someone to read her lots of books.
Thanks Grandma & Grandpa Pedersen, Judy, Jesse, Brenden, Elizabeth, Jesse, Sara, Jim, Nona and Erick. We had a great time!
