Next stop was Steve's parents house for gifts & lunch. I have no idea what we did to deserve the blessings we received. They went above & beyond anything I could imagine. The best part is that everything was practical, for us & for Cooper. Cooper got some gift cards so we can start converting his room into a toddler room and get a big boy bed. He also got some big boy underwear, they even have Mickey on them. After lunch we got home, it was close to nap and Cooper pretty much melted down at that point. We had spent every waking moment in the past 24 hours on the go and he had enough. A good three hour nap was calling.
After nap time it was off to my mom's for some dinner and more gifts. By the evening we were all exhausted. Today was nice and relaxing and Cooper got to play all day with some of his new toys. I think he was happy to just stay home and play, and so were we. I didn't get many pictures, I let Steve video some things so these were the only ones I got. But... we did get a new camera from Scott. It's the same camera we have now, it's just 5 years newer. Once I figure everything out I'm going to take the same picture with both cameras to compare the two.
Thanks again to all our family who help to make our lives so wonderful.
We can't forget the shower caps that someone won as well.
No Christmas Eve is complete without Steve & Ricky's gift exchange. Ricky got to go on a scavenger hunt playing "Cooper's Clues". Each clue was written out like a two year would say it. Steve's gift was inside a tub of toast, peanut butter and melted marshmallows. It was disgusting, but that's the fun of it all.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? As a child no, as an adult, yes! Christmas 2006- it was about 6 weeks before we were going on a trip to Disney World. One thing Disney does that I've always wanted to take part in was pin trading. Almost all cast members (employees) wear lanyards with various Disney pins attached. If you have a pin and want to trade, all you do is walk up to the cast member and tell them which pin you would like and they have to give it to you. That is unless their lanyard is green, then they only exchange with kids. Anyway... the pins are pretty expensive, anywhere between $6-$10 for one. I had bought a few in our two previous trips but they were ones I picked out and wasn't willing to depart with them. Come to find out, people sell these on eBay, usually in lots of 10 or 20, you can get 10 for about the price you would pay for 2. So, Steve bought me 10, they were random ones I would never buy but I got to trade them. That same year we also bought each other the same calendar- The Office. See pics below.14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Well, obviously it's the birth of Jesus, but it's also about family & traditions. The traditions my family had growing up kind of fell apart by the time I entered high school, so I will do everything in my power to not let that happen to Cooper and we will have traditions.
