For Christmas Eve this year, we had our Michel family Christmas celebration. Ledger had another great Christmas and had a mountain of presents to open. His favorite gift, BY FAR, was a kid version of a vacuum that makes vacuum-like noises. We made the mistake of letting him open that gift first, so he happily spent most of our family Christmas vacuuming the room and only took a few seconds' break to rip paper off of his next present. :-) Daddy got a laptop, which he was very excited for. His laptop has been out of commission for more than two weeks! Mommy got a video camera that works underwater and a nice pair of jeans. Uncle Chris V. got some cowboy boots and aunt Jaime got two different types of vacuum. :) Grammie scored some beautiful jewelry and Grandpa got a stack of puzzles and gift certificates. As always, we finished with the Michel family scavenger hunt -- we look forward to it every year! For the second year, we had our family dinner at Red Lobster.... yum!!
