Christmas in San Antonio 2010

The Axtell Clan

Christmas in San Antonio was CRAZY, but so much fun. On Friday, we had family pictures out at the Dominion. It went surprisingly well considering we had 8 little ones to work with. 😉 Christmas Eve, we went over to my Grandma’s house and had a Bill Miller’s Dinner…to everyone’s liking, of course! Then, we opened up all of our gifts. This was the first time we have opened up all of our gifts on Christmas Eve! Our tradition usually holds, we open 1 gift Christmas Eve night and the rest on Christmas Day. It was complete craziness watching everyone open up their gifts at the same time. Complete craziness…just the way I like it! 😉 Ha! I have never seen so many toys in all of my life, but it was great fun! On Christmas Day we had a lovely dinner that Jean prepared ALL.BY.HERSELF! She made everything! Everyone was impressed and it was by far one of the best dinners I have ever had. Woo-Hoo Jean! I am pretty sure that everyone went home with some new recipes in hand to add to their collection at home…the cheese squares being the biggest hit of the night!  On Sunday, we were able to meet Christy and the family out for lunch at Alamo Cafe…Presley’s first visit to the cafe! yummmo! Sunday evening we were able to get out for a date night…thanks dad! It was a great Christmas and we were completely exhausted by the time we got home on Monday. Thankfully, we flew and so we got home early Monday morning which left us the entire day to just relax. Presley went to bed at 6:00 and didn’t wake up until the next morning at 9:45! Today, we are trying to get back into the routine of things and Presley is trying to get used to playing by herself again 😦 Here are a few of my Christmas Favorites…Miss Cranky Pants

My most favorite picture EVER! I love everything about it. Reid, just like his dad, is trying to get his point across to his cousin and Presley is taking it all in….she thinks he is so funny.  

My sweet Grandma Cose…still young at heart 😉
