All the little kids participated in acting out the nativity at the Ross Christmas Eve party; Carson got to be a shepherd, and Brianna was an angel. It was good to see a visual reminder of the greatest gift of all and the reason we celebrate Christmas - Jesus Christ.
After the talent portion of the night, the pinata came out and all the kids got to swing the little bat to see if they could put a hole in the pinata.
It finally broke open and this is what Carson's spoil looked like.
It took about an hour or so for Tucker to get used to the big crowd, so Grandpa Knight got to hold him some to help him feel at home. (fruit snacks help.)
Tucker and his new cousin, Bethany.
Grandpa Claus comes out and gives each grandchild a bag of candy!
Keith and his Grandpa Farrel Ross.
We got to take home our very first goldfish from the gift exchange - we hope they survive! We have named them Christmas, Gran and Pizza, cause there's a big one, a medium one and a little one.
Here's Carson getting ready to raid the stockings on Christmas morning. (thanks to Sofia for the garland, it really makes hanging the stockings here perfect!)
This is one of the toys Santa brought for Carson. It's a Roborover and he talks and explores.

Tucker with Aunt Andrea after a nap.
The boys playing in Grandma's backyard.
Tucker enjoying the packaging after opening presents.
Great picture of Aunt Andrea and Tucker. (if only the pacifier was gone.)
Our family Christmas picture this year! What a great shot!
A view of the Christmas party at my parents house with all the relatives in Livermore. This was right as we started opening presents. We had a wonderful meal with prime rib and ham, with yummy salads and desserts. We had a great time and loved to see all the family.
