Yay!! Christmas morning!! Uncle Mark brought everyone fresh pineapples! And also these awesome tools that core the pineapple and cut it into slices in one move!

Ben got to join us for stocking this year before heading out to spend the day with his family!

Baby Kate sure loves snowmen. She got this little stuffed one in her stocking!

Oooh, a big huge present for Baby Kate!

Time to open it!

What is it!?!

It's a little baby guitar!! Grandpa made Kate an exact replica of one of his own favorite guitars!!

Her first strums!

Breakfast break!!


Back to the presents! Dad is an incredible wrapper and tag-maker.

Matching guitars!

At some point, we took a break so that Kate could go home and take a nap. When they came back to Grandma and Grandpa's, they quickly realized that they had left her new snowman sucker behind. She had just gotten it in her stocking that morning and was in love with it. Baby Kate wanted it so much that she said she'd rather just go home than stay at Grandma and Grandpa's for more Christmas fun!! So, Pete ran home to pick up the sucker. Here she is watching for him to return.

She sees him coming!! There's Daddy!

The hero!!

Returning the sucker. She doesn't have candy very often so that sucker was a pretty Big Deal.

Best wrapping paper in the whole world.

Content with her snowman sucker. That thing lasted for HOURS.

Christmas carols!

Kate got a pinwheel!

Mmm, Christmas dinner.
