Christmas Day

It has been a wonderful day here in Michigan!

We had a delicious breakfast of cinnamon rolls, crab and cheese quiche and baked french toast with mimosas!   Wow!

The baked french toast

Then we opened gifts with Dad and the kids...

Keenan was thrilled to get this monopoly game!

Caleb loved his books (I see many happy hours of entertainment on the drive home)

Riah got these outfits from Papa

I can't believe how much fun, family, and food (there were so many beautiful meals!) you managed to fit into such a short period of time! Oh and beautiful pictures too :)
Drive safely! And hope poor Caleb is feeling better!

I am so excited to see Moriah wearing her Christmas dress everywhere! :) And how adorable that her doll matches her outfit. :) Looks like it was so much fun there.
