Christmas at Peter's Parents' House

Peter's mom and dad hosted our annual day after Christmas gathering with Nana and Aunt Marian.  We had a great meal of turkey, cornbread, and borscht soup.  Yum yum!  

After our meal, we opened gifts.  Nana opened the first one.

Peter and his mom. :)

Now I know where he gets his silly face making skills from!

Auntie M with the book we got her.

Mom with a gift she opened from Matt and Ruthann - a panini book!  They also got a panini maker to go with it, but I didn't get any pictures of it.

Peter is wearing the stuffing from the box that the panini maker came in.  Apparently, it makes a nice shawl.

Another Tin Tin book to add to his almost complete collection!

This is when Mom was about to hand a gift to Nana and accidentally broke the ribbon.  I love how shocked she was!

Nana starts opening the gift that everyone who was there pitched in on...

We all knew she knew what it was because Aunt Marian had her try it out to make sure she liked it.  Nana pretended she didn't know what it was.   

It was her back massager!  It was so funny because apparently Aunt M interrupted Nana's planned and supposedly rehearsed surprised act!

This big box was for Dad!

We couldn't tell what was in it.

Mom got him a guitar so that he can start playing again!  So cool!

Andrew making some stupid face haha

Me opening a Beth Moore book from Auntie M :)

Dad wrapped Mom's present with a big red bow!  Now I know where Peter gets his wrapping skills from.  :)

He bought her a back support for the car.  She apparently knew what she was getting and tried to pretend she didn't just like Nana did.  Must run in the family.  haha

My lovely in-laws :)

After presents, we had dessert and watched a movie and just hand fun hanging it.  It was nice to get to spend the majority of the day with Nana and Aunt Marian.  Especially since last year was so quick with the snow that came in.
