December was busy for us with bursts of activity leading to a relatively low-key Christmas Day. We had a church party and neighborhood party mid-December and attended a Christmas Eve service at our church. We woke up Christmas morning and opened gifts to each other and tried to get Fiona interested in unwrapping her gifts (a rocking horse, Noah's ark cut-out, doll and books), but she was more interested in the wrapping paper. I think next year will be more exciting for her. Since Jamie was out-of-town, my parents decided to drive to our house on Christmas to spend more time together around Fiona's nap. After my parents arrived, we spent the day visiting and eating: smoked salmon and cheese and fruit for an appetizer and then more fish for dinner.

On December 26, we flew to Indiana to spend almost a week with Chris' family. For most of the trip, the entire family was in Indiana (Chris' parents, Allison and Rob and their kids, as well as Katie and Matt). We had a ton of fun, and the four kids certainly raised the excitement and noise level. Mike and Rhonda hosted Christmas parties for both sides of their family, so we caught up with almost everyone. 

Open it, open it!
