1 down...8 to go!

We love our big families. We really love being so close to everyone - grandmas, grandpas, aunts, and uncles (including greats- and great-greats!). But sometimes it's overwhelming! We have eight Christmas get-togethers this year. Plus our own at home on Christmas morning. Eight!!! Leslie told me, "That must be really nice, or insane." It's both. But today was so fun and Oli did so well, I'm sure the rest of this holiday season will be a breeze. We had Christmas lunch with Ian's great-grandma McKnabb and her family. That's right, Oliver is lucky enough to know his great-great-grandmother!
He had a very short nap on the car ride there, and played like a mad man for three and a half hours, and was out cold before we got out of the parking lot. We got home at 4, brought him into his room, and he continued to sleep til 5:30 - which meant mama got a nap, too!
Now if he can just keep doing this eight more times....
