Christmas Eve with the Langevin Family: Recap 1 of 5

We're recovering from Christmas at our house. Going non-stop from Saturday-Tuesday, left Daddy with a horrible cough, Mommy with a migraine, and Andrew actually WELL (talk about role-reversals) yesterday.  It's a good thing that I have another few days off before going back to work!

On Saturday, Christmas Eve, we headed to Lakewood at 8 am.  We arrived at my parents house and Andrew had time to play with Grandma and Grandpa.  Grandma made his is very own stocking that matches Mommy, Daddy, and Aunt Melissa's stockings.  He thought it was the best thing on the planet.
 Grandma had a much bigger tree up than we do and Andrew could access it, so he spent most of the time standing at the packages, trying to reach the lower ornaments.  I thought it would be a good time to give her his hand print ornament to hang on the tree.
 As Andrew played, Grandma got lunch ready and watched Andrew move and touch every single thing in the living room, dining room, and kitchen.  It's a good thing that they baby proofed and put locks on the kitchen cabinets.
 At lunch time, Great Grandma T and Grandpa came over (my mom's dad).  Andrew pretended to be shy and clung to Mommy's leg as GGrandpa played peek-a-boo.
 Andrew likes them and they LOVE to give him attention!
 My mom's house is beautifully decorated.  This picture is mainly to just show it off!
 GGrandma T was tickled pink over the Jailed Reindeer (singing 'Grandma Got Ran over by a Reindeer') from Andrew.
 After lunch and presents, we headed over to Aunt Luanne's house (my mom's sister) to visit with the rest of the Langevin family.  Andrew chomped away on a sour dough roll!
 but was pretty worn out (sitting with Grandpa who was worn out too).
 This was the first time in a long while that all the Langevin cousins have been together.  I am the oldest and, by far, the shortest.
Jennifer (28), Melissa (25), Garrett (23), Andrew (18), Matthew (16 and the tallest).

After a yummy dinner of Lasagna and lots of talking we headed home to Riverside at 7:45 pm.
