McKnight - Weekly Christmas

Putting the Giraffe Tent Together! Samantha loved watching uncle Greg and cousin Jamie put up the tent that Jodi & family got her. She also loved playing it! Goldie, Great-Aunt Debbie, Jamie, and Auntie Debra all took turns playing with her and reading books inside the tent!

We had our 2nd of 7 Christmas' on Saturday. The McKnight - Weekly Christmas was held at Doug's parents house near Plattsmouth. It was a packed house as we had 27 people there from Kansas City; Columbia, MO; Dallas, TX; Fremont; and Omaha. It was a fun time. We had a "gift card exchange", where we each bought a gift card for $10 to one of our favorite stores and then drew numbers to see which person would go first at picking which "wrapped" gift card they wanted. It was pretty brutal at one point because you can steal other peoples when it was your turn. My gift card got stollen at least 3 times!! (Good thing the kids weren't involved in this exchange-we'd hate to show then how violent we can get! haha). I ended up with Starbucks (because I love their Hot Chocolate) and Doug ended up with AMC Theatres. Samantha got a Strawberry Shortcake book from the Weekly's and a Giraffe Tent from Aunt Jodi.
