How Was Your Christmas?

We had a busy Christmas down in the sunny, but freezing, state of Florida. We headed to the aunt & uncle’s house Christmas Eve for their annual get together. Check out me and my cousins:

After a few hours of loud fun, we headed home to sprinkle our reindeer food and hit the sack, after all Santa doesn’t come when kids are awake. Once the kids were all snug in their beds we finally caught Santa in the act:

Early Christmas morning it was time to wake up and jump into present opening:

Though I do need to have a little talk with Santa about the mess he makes coming through the chimney. Next year I think I’ll hide a key for him.

We then headed to my aunts for our annual Christmas breakfast then home to prepare for everyone to come over. It was really a wonderful Christmas getting to spend time with family and friends. I made it completely through the holiday before feeling not very well.

Until then Christmas was perfect, we got to celebrate Jesus’ birth with friends and family and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Oh and I totally giggled at their Christmas lists, which they managed to get everything and more of…

Gabriel Christmas List
Aidan Christmas List

What are some of your favorite memories of this Christmas?

    It looks like you had a great Christmas and those lists are adorable (and quite specific LOL). I’m sorry you were sick, but at least you got through the big day before it hit, right? I got sick right before, but it was over before Christmas and I was so thankful…who wants to spend Christmas sick, right?!

    Happy holidays!
