Christmas day

December 26, 2007

It started out with Raleigh opening up his one present (From Great Grandpa and Grandma V.)

It was an adorable Osh Kosh red hooded sweatshirt.

Then we headed over to Erika and Joel’s for brunch. Raleigh got to try on the hand knit Dale of Norway sweater that Grandma Deb made for him.

We spent the rest of the day at Erika and Joel’s. We were continually trying to keep Raleigh from climbing the stairs.
