Christmas - round two

Ben, Carolyn, and Grace showed up at our place late on New Year's Eve. The trip from Alabama to Arkansas is suddenly much longer when you have a toddler... We should know.

We celebrated Christmas with them on New Year's morning. It was fun to watch Liam and Grace open presents. Liam was especially excited to get to open presents again.
Grace enjoyed Liam's craft table with all of the chalk. Carolyn is already telling Ben he needs to make a similar table for their little ones. I agree ;-)
Notice all of the coloring pages in the background. One of my daily crafty blog must-reads, Elsie Marley, had a new coloring page for each day leading up to Christmas. This was one of Liam's favorite festive activities.
Grace really took to her Uncle Gabriel quickly. We hadn't seen her since she was 8 weeks old, but it didn't take long at all for her to warm up to us.
We were greeted with a couple of inches of snow this morning. Ben was thrilled, even though they had to begin their drive back this morning. Hopefully their return trip went quicker than the drive out here.Thanks for such a nice visit!
