I wrote quite a bit about the lead up to Christmas ’13, but one thing I didn’t post was that we did a bit a of traveling for the holiday. [No sense advertising our house was empty for a few days, so I keep that info until I get back.] With a family all over, we had to make time for different celebrations.

We started with Christmas Eve at our house. As a kid, Christmas Eve was spent at Grandma’s house.  The last two years we did that, but this year we had to switch things up.

The next morning – we had to leave at 8:00 am to get a flight to visit my parents. She looked so cute in her Christmas Dress, tights and black shoes – if I do say so myself.

But with travel, dinner, family, we opened gifts with my parents the next day.

We stayed a few days, but due to travel, Christmas stretched a few extra days.  We still needed to take ‘lil q to see her other grandparents – oh and we needed to let ‘lil q open her gifts from Santa and her many friends.

Then it was off to Grandma and Grandpa’s. Her ‘other’ Christmas dress was pretty cute too.
