The Sunday Before Christmas

As is our longstanding tradition, my dad’s side of the family gathered together this past Sunday afternoon to celebrate the season. We were at Nola and Nopsi’s house again this year, which made things really easy on Kenny and me.

The complete opposite of last year, when he did little more than chill in someone’s arms, Riley was in his element, running around and playing and squealing and bringing a smile to everyone’s faces. He spent a good bit of time “by himself” out on the back porch with Jem, though. Those two are quite a pair. (Check out his bubble butt in the bottom pic…too funny!)

After we watched the Saints beat the Vikings, we opened presents. It was fun to see what Riley did when his gifts were put in front of him…..what a huge difference from last year. I can’t wait until Christmas morning! And, he already knows how to say “Elmo” and “boulder.” This kid is a smart one. (I know it kinda looks like he’s strangling poor Elmo in the top two pics below, but he’s really giving him squeezes. Sweet boy.)

A delicious dinner of two soups (chicken tortilla and lasagna) rounded out the day, even though we were all stuffed from the plethora of appetizers available during the game. Thanks to everyone in Nopsi’s family for making this annual day a special one. It’s always good to see y’all!


Merry Christmas!
