2005 Christmas Eve

View All 2005 Christmas Eve Photos
This year for Christmas Eve we went to Edi and Monika's home to celebrate. Edi and Monika are Kate's great aunt and uncle. They hosted a lovely gathering with a delicious meal.

This holiday season Kate was really spoiled. With gifts? Yes. But also by attention. Since she's the only small child in the family, she got lots of attention.

Kate spent some time with grandpa watching the train go around the Christmas tree. She also had lots of fun opening gift after gift after gift with Omi and Monika. And after the gifts were open it was, of course, time to play. Kate spent a lot of one-on-one time with her Omi. Omi even taught Kate how to play with Mr. Potato Head.

Since Ken and I are usually the ones taking the pictures, we rarely get a picture alone with Kate or as a family. This year we really tried to do "Daddy and Kate" and "Mommy and Kate" pictures. First up was Daddy. Kate was much more interested in Edi and Monika's German bear and statue carousel pony. Kate and the bear look good, but where was Daddy? :-) So Daddy was out and the bear was in.

When it was my turn I was a bit wiser than Ken and tried to peek around Kate and the bear so you could at least see my face. Forget about my face, though, what's up with Kate's face? So Mommy was out and the horse was in. much for those family pictures. Kate seems to pose to the beat of her own drum.
