kevin coined a new nickname for grandma locklin when misreading a holiday package label for chloe from grandma this year. he read, from mimi. we think it's a cute nickname and may just stick around. we started the morning with cinnamon rolls, little cutie tangerines (also a locklin holiday tradition) and coffee while we waited for the rest of the gang to arrive.
matt and tara arrived from paso robles and in the evening we celebrated with a delicious dinner around the table when the aunts and uncles arrived. pot roast, turkey breast, potatoes, brussel sprouts, baked yams, dinner rolls, all made complete with aunt linda's famous pecan pie. later that evening we opened gifts beside the beautiful 12 foot christmas tree. it truly was a christmas to remember.
