It’s an annual tradition at our house to go to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for a little party and then head to church for the Plum Pudding celebration. This year, Kevin got to play with his cousins and see how gingerbread houses are made (below left). His other favorite thing at the grandparents house is the talking Christmas tree. He’s too scared to get it started, but once it starts singing and swaying, Kevin breaks into an animated set of dance moves 🙂
Ryan was also a big hit at the party. He and his cousin Taryn got into a major stare down. I’m not sure who eventually won. Ryan looks a little scared of his uncle Kim (below right) but by the end of the night they were best buddies!
Uncle Kim loaned Kevin his old sport coat. He really seemed to enjoy dressing up and posed for quite a few pictures with his little brother and the family in front of the Christmas tree.
After a big dinner at Grandma and Grandpa’s house we headed over to church where Kevin enjoyed coloring with his cousins, watching the choir and eating lots of cookies! Meanwhile his little brother was mesmerized by all the Christmas lights. He didn’t cry the whole time we were there, just stared at the lights 🙂
The last part of the evening was a children’s story. Kevin watched the slideshow intently that went with the narration (below right).
