Celebrating an Early Merry Christmas

Since Wendy and Dan are going to be in Texas for Christmas this year, we celebrated early.  We packed up the gifts, a salad and Sir Titan and headed south to Greg's house for our Christmas get together.  Although we traveled separately from Wendy and Dan, we arrived within a few minutes of one another.  Greg and Ella arrived a few minutes later, coming from church.  

He even bought my favorite candies...non pariels!
First thing on the agenda was putting together the gingerbread house.  
Thankfully, the gingerbread was already prepared!
Technically, I watched while Ella and Wendy did the construction and decorating, which is kind of messy.
Greg got the ham ready for the oven, then he helped finish the decorating.
Voila...the finished product!
Wendy and I had placed our gifts under the tree.
They looked nice all tucked under the tree but we opened them in the living room, except Dan...he was sick and taking a nap upstairs ;o(
Three generations of Wehmeyer women
We enjoyed a nice late afternoon meal of spiral ham, twice baked sweet potatoes and orzo salad (no onions).

Ella and I snuck away to take a couple of pictures.

We played games, considered making bracelets, which was quickly abandoned when that required nail polish (none of which could be found) so Ella started building her new Lego set from Auntie Wendy and Uncle Dan.  There are 575 pieces.  Papa Bill came over to check out the progress but it was going to take some time.
Rumor has it, Ella enjoys an audience...
This was Titan's first time traveling to anyone's house, other than Wendy and Dan's, and I thought he did a great job.  Ella even gave him a nice, new chew toy!  
Christmas is boring...
Before leaving we took our traditional family photos in front of the tree.  Even Dan felt good enough for the pictures.  
I've been saving thee glasses since last year and I actually remembered to bring them with us...three cheers for ME!!!
And Titan got one with his BFF!
Thanks for stopping by...
