Christmas Eve 2009. Myke's whole family drove down from Orlando: Baba, Pa, Uncle Brian, Nonie & Papa Nick - oh and Moses, the dog too! Also Myke's cousins Ara & Janet drove down too for dinner.
Nonie & Papa Nick - so glad that they could be here with us and that Chianna gets to spend time with her Great- Grandparents!
Moses "Mo" the dog, so named because he was left at the vet's door in a basket.
Our happy girl clapping hands!
Myke's dinner menu:
Apple & onion stuffed pork. (Except for Brian & Janet who got chicken.)
Myke's special s'mores cake! YUM!
After dinner Chianna wanted to read books with Uncle Brian!
It is so great that she has this special time with Uncle Brian, she always wants to read books with him!
McConahay Christmas tradition is to open 1 present on Christmas Eve. She also got to open her gift from Cousins Ara & Janet - some My Little Ponies!
Chianna's first Christmas Eve present:
Monkey Christmas Pajamas & Monkey slippers!
The children all tucked in their beds. . . .
After she was in bed, Santa's helpers were able to put all the presents under the tree:
And her new car, which didn't fit under the tree!
And with Mo there all curled up & sleeping on the couch . . to all a good night!
