Merry Christmas from the Dunn kids!

We woke up on Christmas day and jumped in the car to drive 2 hours south to our grandparents house. We always end up having to take two cars so this year we did kids in one car parents in the other. We made our necessary yearly pit stop at Starbucks before hitting the road. 

We spent the entire car ride drinking our coffees and singing songs from musicals at the top of our lungs. 
All the presents under the tree at our grandparents house. We have a large extended family.....

Some of our family wasn't able to be there this year but in leu of her absence our cousin Rachel made us a scavenger hunt! It was the coolest thing! You opened an envelope containing your clue and then once you solved it you located a gift that she left for you. 

This was my clue-
And this is what I found - a gift for Pixie! 
Shelby's clue led her to a gift for both her and I - this amazing artwork that Rachel made for us. We love it SO much! 
And this is what our Mom found. Such a unique and creative way to still be with us on this day.
We traditionally open presents youngest to oldest and we draw names for Secret Santa. So, our grandpa, being the oldest, always opens last. This year he got a little impatient while waiting for everyone to open their presents. It was the cutest thing. He discovered that he had a present from me and got so excited. He held it in his lap hugging it for a while...
still (sort of) patiently waiting....
Right after this I caught him trying to unwrap a corner...
When we finally got to his turn he had the excitement of a five year old on Christmas morning. I love that he still gets excited for Christmas after all of these years. But then again, who doesn't like receiving presents?!

We had a great day spending time with family-

We hope each of you had a wonderful holiday and we are looking forward to ringing in the new year! 

Until Next Time
