Christmas Day

Christmas Day ended up being a beautiful day. We spent the second half of the day at Grammy and Papa's house with Aunt Christy and Uncle Chris and my Dad, Grandpa. We had a wonderful meal and it was warm enough that the kids could spend time cruising around in their new big wheels outdoors.

GG will be joining us in January to celebrate her 70th birthday and Holden's 2nd. Our 10th wedding anniversary is in January as well so we will continue to have a lot to celebrate.

Merry, Merry!

Merry Christmas to you all! The boys have been their normal mischievous selves today, even though they know that Santa and his reindeer are coming tonight. Lily is practically falling all over herself to be extra sweet and helpful, I'm sure to get on Santa's good side. She set the table, cleaned the table after dinner, shared her chair with Holden while we made Santa's brownies...I could go on. And she will not be disappointed, she is going to make out like a bandit tomorrow morning.

Polar Express with Dad

David and the boys are riding the Polar Express today. I just got this phone pic from David of them with Santa. Can't wait to hear about their trip. Holden, Lily and I are just hanging out at home relaxing in our quiet house. I just painted Lily's toes red. She thinks Dad and Santa will like them.

Christmas Scene

Saturday we went to visit Santa with Grammy in Lakeway. The kids were very excited and eager to meet Santa.

I was impressed with the Elf helper's ability to wrangle Holden and would be happy to have one or two at home.

Evan asks for a Batman motorcycle, Will wants vanilla ice cream and two pieces of Chiclet gum and Lily wants a baby doll, a doll house and a pink scooter.

Lily gives Mrs Claus a big warm hug.

Group shot with Santa. Santa tells me that his brother has 10 year old triplets.

The kids are overjoyed to see Rudolph and their group hug knocks him down.

I give Rudolph some help.

Holden dances and sings Jingle Bells with Rudolf, now safe distance behind a rope...

or so he thinks, the team takes him down again.

A quick family photo session to capture a Christmas card pic.

And Grammy ushers her flock out the door.
