Christmas Day

We spent the night at the Galbraith's on Christmas Eve but as soon as Elise woke up we loaded up the car and headed over to the Pugh's.  We got there around 8:45am and the present opening began!  We were all very spoiled and fortunate this year.  We had a great time opening gifts with Zack's mom and dad.
First, Grandpa helped Elise look at all of the fun treasures inside her stocking.  She saw the m&ms inside first and was pretty content to just sit and eat them all morning!  Guess that was all she needed!
Here she is with a bunch of candy in her mouth!  Remember those socks?!  Yep she wore them to bed and all Christmas morning too! What a silly girl!
Zack's parents got him the Nexus 7 (google's tablet).  He was really surprised with this gift and had a great time playing with it all day long.  
Here is Elise with her musical princess book and her Minnie Mouse bow-tique!  She doesn't look like it here, but she was excited for both of these!  

After we opened presents, some of Zack's siblings (Brian and Sonia) and their families came over and we had a delicious breakfast!  We had eggs, sausage, coffee cake, cinnamon pull aparts, fruit and juice!  We nibbled on that for hours and talked with everyone about what Santa brought!  

At 4pm the entire Pugh clan came over!  We had a very yummy dinner with bacon wrapped steaks!  The kids all had fun running around and eating all the candy off of Grandmas candy tree.  We sang Christmas carols together and got to open even more presents! Elise got 4 fun new board books from her cousin!  We've already been reading and loving them!

One all the kids presents were open we did the sibling gift exchange with all of the Pugh's. We tried to have everyone do more of a homemade/heartfelt gifts this year and I was so impressed with the creativity in the gifts!  Brian and Liz had us and had a whole theme about how we are becoming cheese-heads and that we have been in Wisconsin too long!  Every letter we opened was full of jokes and more reasons why we should move back to Utah.  We ended up with cartons of Aggie ice cream and BYU creamery ice cream.  Our final gift was an ice cream maker that will be shipped to us when we get home. Thanks so much Brian and Liz!  We loved our gift and can't wait to use it when we get home!

I love the socks on OVER the jammie feet! Too funny. Who doesn't love a couple of M and M's for breakfast?!
