We journeyed to Holly for most of this past week to celebrate the season. Wednesday night my mom hosted the Hammes family for dinner. Thursday night we had the Allens over for dinner, and all the Hammes and Allen kids stayed for drinks and laughs. Friday night we had the Salisburys and Eatons over for Christmas Eve. Christmas Day we headed to Monica's, and Isla quickly learned the art of ripping wrapping paper off her presents. We made it home safely early this afternoon, though we still have much unpacking to do. Isla has been a busy bee playing with her activity table, Zany Zoo cube, Violet puppy, Busy Ball Popper, Mickey Mouse airplane and some other new toys. We still have a wrapped present under the tree for her, but we've decided to wait a few days to give that to her. I need to get her 'baby' toys in storage to make room for the new ones!
