We started out with opening gifts. It was alot of fun. Annabelle is old enough to open gifts on her own, and everything was, "wow! Open peaze!"
We had appetizers, and then we had turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, corn, rolls, mixed fruit and shrimp coctail. I must admit, it all turned out really well. Todd made an awesome turkey. It was a 21 lb. turkey, so we have LOTS of leftovers!
Then, Doc fell asleep on the couch (turkey coma?) and Annabelle was running around the house. She has so much energy and NEVER stops. She was running from one side of the house to the other.
Here are some pictures:
Annabelle gets a book!
Doc got a Jerome Bettis signed football (Steelers) from my brother. I wish Derek were home. :-(
Mom and Doc werent going to exchange gifts...but Doc CAN'T NOT buy a gift for mom. Doc spoils her with lots of jewelry, and this will just add to the collection. My mom has gotten into black diamonds over the past few years, and this is a beautiful tennis bracelet Doc got her.

Todd's "nice" dishes for special occasions. He did really well at setting the table.
Annabelle meets Red.
Oh, she loved the kitties. She loved Tux.
Annabelle kisses Tux.
Annabelle hugs Tux (I think it's time for a new camera. Alot of blurry photos. Maybe it was the photographer?!? Oh wait, that'd be ME!)
I thought this was absolutely precious.
Annabelle has to go to another Christmas party, so had to get dressed in a new outfit.
