On the Third Day of Christmas (Christmas Day)

Gloucester/Mathews - The third day of Christmas was chocked full of family and presents.  Ryan and Bel started the morning checking out their goods from Santa.  They both woke up Mammy so we could get started opening presents.  Unfortunately just as we were about to sit down the phone rang and Mammy had to go to work because the alarm was going off.  It turned out to be a false alarm and Mammy and Aunt Cheech returned quickly.  After eating breakfast, we opened all of our gifts.  Ryan got clothes and toys and even big boy underwear.  He wore them for 2 1/2 hours without any accidents.

After presents we enjoyed a yummy lunch of ham, roast beef, mashed potatoes, baked apples and other delights.  Again, Ryan got a very short nap before we went to Grandma Ruby's to celebrate.  There we enjoyed a couple hours with Grandma, Aunt Jane and Timmy.  Bel and Ryan got really cool gifts, but they just wanted to play in the box that the presents were delivered.

In the evening we headed to Mathews to celebrate with Mammy's side of the family.  Ryan had fun playing with his cousins and getting even more presents.  We ended the day stopping to see Meemaw and Pop because they couldn't make the celebration.  Phew...what an exhausting day.
