We kicked things off with a trip to Cheryl and Jay's to spend Christmas Eve with the Jackson clan. Ben and Dad both donned their Santa hats! Livvie too, but I don't have a picture.
At Cheryl's, we had Christmas dinner, hung out with family, and the kids opened way too many presents.
Present time. Good lord, the presents...
I think everything was just overwhelming for Ben. Right after presents, he asked to get in his PJs, and then had a little meltdown. But he quickly calmed down and sat quietly with his favorite toy of the night -- Buzz Lightyear. We put Liv in her PJs too and figured we'd leave early, because both kids were done. But then they both found their second wind and were fine. So we hung out until about 8 and then drove home to put the kids to bed and get ready for Santa!
