Christmas 2010

Our 3-day Christmas extravaganza has come to an end but, as usual, we have many photos to remember it by!

Christmas Eve:
Kennedy is all ready for Christmas Mass in her Christmas dress!
On our way to church, we stopped by to visit grandma LeeAnn and wish her a Merry Christmas.
Roderick was sick on Christmas Eve. Kennedy is always ready with a little snuggle!

Mass didn't go well... Kennedy was in rare form so we left after about 30 minutes.
I had no desire to a) sit through mass with a screaming child or b) chase her around the back of the church.
Hopefully God understood :)
Since we left church early, we stopped by Heidi and Brian's and wished them a Merry Christmas!

Payton and Kennedy (neither willing to smile!)

Next, we continued on to my mom's for a great Christmas Eve dinner!

Christmas Day:

We got up at 6:30 a.m. so we could make it back down to my mom's in time to open presents on Christmas morning. Rachael is at prime "santa-age" so she was just beside herself with excitement. So fun to see!
Six-year olds at Christmas are the best!
Kennedy giving Katie the dog a big squeeze...

Later that day, we went to John and Patty's for Christmas dinner. We FINALLY got a photo of all 5 McKenna grandkids. This was quite an undertaking... still not the greatest picture but they are all in one place and looking in the general vacinity of the camera! We'll take it!
