Christmas 2015

 We had a wonderful Christmas.  It is so sad to see it go! 

Christmas Eve-
Our Christmas Eve tradition is to wear our pajamas all day and watch Christmas movies and eat.  We watched The Grinch, Home Alone 1 and 2 (the boys' favorite!), Polar Express and Elf.  Casey and I watched The Christmas Story and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation that night.  We wait all year to watch these movies!


 Later that evening we went to my parents and enjoyed more food, and visiting.  The kids did the Nativity and they did really good.  I don't think any tears were shed and they knew what to do!  My favorite part was watching an old family video of all of us when we were little.  I loved the memories it brought back of our old house.

Here are the kids in their Christmas pajamas

Christmas Day!
Here are the kids waiting for the traditional top of the stairs picture.  We got so much snow Casey was up shoveling early that morning.  I sat in bed waiting for the kids to wake up.  They finally woke up at 7:45 and had to wait until Dad was done shoveling before we could go downstairs.
 Gavin's face is priceless!

 When I was thinking about what to get Casey, I didn't realize until afterwards that I got him things for the kitchen...he is our better chef in the house though!  He has always bugged me for a really big pot, so that's what he got!  He also got a food dehydrator
 and nerf guns...still a kid at heart

Merry Christmas!
