We celebrated Vivian's first Christmas in Nebraska and Owatonna and the girls did a good job with the traveling. Our first party was in Owatonna where the girls got to hang out with Grandpa, Grandma, Aunt Annie, Uncle Adam, and Cousin Maggie. We played cards, hung out, and did a lot of running around. Nina and Vivian got a lot of new toys. Her grandparents were all on the same page this Christmas - Nina was thrilled to get her favorite of Toy Story characters, including the villain, Zurg. Incidentally, he's been given a few time outs for hitting people since we've gotten home.

Time to get packed for Nebraska!
Aunt Kelsey got stuck with some bad weather for her flights and ended up flying to Minnesota. It was great to have her with us for some extra time and to have someone to help the girls on the drive down to Nebraska. Nina reads her books every night and misses her. Nina had a great time playing with Nana and Papa and searched out some of her old toys there, and then played with all the new ones. The girls loved getting to see Uncle Jake and his dog Nelli, whom Nina called Neddie.

We also celebrated Jesus's birthday with some cake and Nina was all excited to sing for him (and to eat cake). She wanted to know where he was and then we got out baby Jesus from the nativity set and she laughed because he's too tiny to eat his own cake!
