Christmas with the Hromadas

Our first Christmas celebration was with Grandma and Grandpa Hromada and Aunt Karen on Christmas Eve. We enjoyed dinner together, opened gifts and played Wii and a new board game. Yes, all of these gifts belonged to Avery!
You'll see several pictures of Avery trying to open gifts. She loved pulling and eating the paper but wasn't very excited about the gifts themselves. And here are two videos for our fans in Boise. We promise to take pictures after we hang the letters in Avery's room.

After all this excitement, we still managed to go to the 11 p.m. Christmas Eve service at church. We hoped that Avery would sleep through the entire service. Instead, she woke up just before the service started and was ready to play! She was very well behaved, but she made me extra thankful that we have a nursery and don't keep her with us during church every week!
