We know we’ve been MIA from the internet lately but we have been SO busy! Our family had a really spectacular Christmas – the boys were just old enough to really get into the activities and it was so, so fun. Here’s a quick snapshot of Christmas 2012.
Jaden & Weston got cookie decorating aprons – guess which child hated his?
We made cinnamon ornaments for the boys’ BSF teachers with Jaden’s best friend, Charlotte.
We got a little snow and Jaden bundled up in his snowsuit to play in it for the first time. He came in red-faced and happy.
Daddy got his Christmas present, a piano, a week early and all 3 guys in our house love playing it.
We hosted a Christmas party for our small group, complete with a present exchange and cookie decorating.
The boys learned how to play hide and seek which is a hilarious story for another day.
On Christmas Eve we ate dinner at Steak ‘n Shake then had the Franklins over to decorate cookies for Santa and read the Christmas story.
And Christmas morning was, of course, a BONANZA
Things were a disaster. This was after most of the wrapping paper had been cleaned up.
Instead of making a huge Christmas dinner, we had Christmas Burritos. Complete with everything you could possibly want to stuff them, including queso blanco and chips/salsa. It was low-key, easy, and delicious. Best of all we enjoyed the entire day and didn’t have to worry about spending hours in a kitchen. Ole!
What did Santa bring the boys for Christmas? A giant bounce house that takes up almost the entire basement. They LOVE it and it’s been great for burning off winter energy.
Hope you had a picture-perfect Christmas! We definitely enjoyed ours!
