The day couldn't have been more fun. We ate a delicious meal and everyone was in great spirits. Then the main event for the two kids began. As gifts were being passed around Gabby and Corbin began opening gifts. They were showered and spoiled with everything they could have wanted and more! Papa wasn't feeling well, but he helped Daddy put together her trampoline so she could play with it the next morning.
The funniest event was after opening gifts. Grandma made two Saran Wrap balls filled with treats for the children and adults. We set a timer and went to town unwrapping the ball as quickly as we possibly could. It was hilarious fun! Gigi was serious about this game, between her and Great Aunt Ellen they stole the show! Seriously I think those two unwrapped faster than anyone and ended up with the most treats. We all agreed this was a new tradition and we will be playing the game again next year.
