Making the Rounds

For as long as I can remember Christmas morning always came with breakfast at my Grandma and Grandpas house complete with Grandpas sourdough pancakes. I love that we were able to share this tradition with our kids this year. After breakfast Grandma and Grandpa open their gifts and then we "make the rounds" to the other families homes to see what Santa brought them. My mom has been doing this since she was a child and it is still continued to this day. After that we made our way to Matt's mom and dad to meet up with all of the siblings.

Looks like you guys were able to fit everything in this year. All the parties, snow days, chocolate candy making etc... all look like super fun!

Glad that you were able to have a wonderful Christmas!
