Though Anna was in the dark about most Christmas specifics this year, she still managed to get herself completely wired on holiday energy. Between the excitment at Granddad & Mom-Mom Kulp's on Christmas Eve and the sea of presents at Grandpop & Grandmom Heebner's on Christmas morning, Anna knew something was up. We also managed to make it to Aunt Ellen & Uncle Richard's house on Christmas Day where 31 extended family members gathered for dinner.
Anna was in all her glory with the huge crowd. She is definitely her father's daughter when it comes to socializing and otherwise putting on a big show. Despite extensive efforts by four family members, there was no afternoon nap to be had. We thought she'd be toast by the time we got back to the Heebner's at the end of the night, but she was still all geared up and happily floated around the extended Heebner/Turner crowd for another hour. Amazingly, she managed to calm herself down enough to go to sleep at 8:30.
