This afternoon we went up to Dahlonega to spend Christmas Eve with my family. Robert's parents are down in Florida spending the holiday with his brother and sister and their families. We had such a nice time. There was no set time to arrive....family members just showed up whenever. There was tons of finger-foods, appetizers and yummy desserts to nibble on. We exchanged presents and hung out for awhile chit-chatting. Skylar was a perfect angel today...totally loving being passed around and loved on by everyone. She got to spend quite a bit of time with her Grandma Bobbie which was extremely important as her Grandma hasn't been well. Skylar also got to spend time with her Nina. That is our name for Amanda. We wanted to stay longer but we had three puppies at home that needed to be let outside to pee. When we finally got home we realized that Sweetie Pie had been locked up in Skylar's room all day....no food, water or litter box. You would think she would learn her lesson and not go in there for a while but sure enough she's in there now. After we came home we made cookies for Santa and read "The Gift of the Magi" and Skylar went off to bed. She's got a very BIG DAY tomorrow!
