Christmas with Friends

This weekend, we had the McWhorters and Adamses over for a family dinner and gift exchange!  As usual, we all had a great time together.  This year, the adults drew names and exchanged gifts, which was a fun change to our usual kids-only exchange.  Of course, the kids had a blast playing, opening their new toys, and then trying out what they'd all gotten!  

Gift opening mania!
 Cutie pie Emma:
 SJ takes Bear's gift and makes a run for it:
SJ practiced sort of a feral gift opening technique... sitting on the paper...
 stomping the paper...
 Finally he was able to crack through the paper and see what was inside!
 Natalie helps KA with a tough bow:
 Opening away!
 SJ even "helped" me open my present from Natalie by jumping on it and stomping it repeatedly.

After all the presents were opened, it was time to play!

The precious girls!
 Cuties: The girls and Bear (Maverick and SJ were not into pictures by this point in the evening!)

We're so lucky to have great friends like these to spend time with at the holidays!
