It's about time I blog about Christmas!!!
Last year we started the tradition of getting Build-a-Bears for Christmas. The kids made their bears several months ago then I wrapped them up. They were going to be for Christmas Eve, but we ended up opening them not he 23rd, just to keep the peace!
I really think we have enough of these bears!
Christmas Eve pajama opening. They can't wait to do this, so they did it first thing in the morning.
Christmas Eve tradition of swimming! This is one of their favorite parts of the holiday.
Christmas Eve dinner with Todd's family. We started the tradition of making rice krispie treat houses a few years ago. The kids do a great job.
The nativity by the cousins.
Mitchell's new hat. So funny!
Santa brought Mickey & Minne for Mitchell & Emma. They were seated at the table when the kids came down in the morning.
Ready to tear into the loot!
Sideways view of the mess from the opening. That saucer sled has yet to be used!! No snow.
We got a Disney waffle maker. Not quite as good as the ones on our cruise, but still fun.
Ready for church. The kids did well during church considering it was Christmas. Mitchell was even a little disappointed to not get to go to nursery.
We rushed up to grandma & grandpa's house after the meeting.
We like to do a picture by grandma's tree each year. The kids were less than cooperative this time.
Ava & Emma got Minnie shirts. From the back these two look like they should be the twins!
It was a great, exhausting Christmas! As we left my sister reminded me, "Only 366 days until Christmas!"
