Christmas Eve is at Nana, Papa Jim's and Papa Winnie's. The whole Coombs crew gathers for kiddo gift exchange and a fun Yankee swap for the adults. Again, the best part is all of the kids running around. I think there were 14 under the age of 18 this year.
Christmas morning is at our house (Nana, Papa Jim, Uncle Tom and Mimi joined us as well). Madeline was up at 4am! She was so excited this year about Santa. She informed us that there were 28 presents under the tree, but by the time Nana got there she had decided that there were "like over a hundred" under there. She was thrilled that Santa had eaten her cookies. From 4-6 she played with her fabulous Island Princess Vanity. She crashed for a bit at 6 (thank goodness).
In the afternoon we gather with the Finley side for another wild swap. This year we did recycled gifts which was quite entertaining. I forgot the camera for this gathering (Shocking, I know). The problem with this gathering is that it is at Aunt Darcy's house, which means we come home with lots of hand-me-down toys - thanks a lot Aunt Darcy ;o)
I can't believe they held still long enough for this!
