December 24, 2015 | We decided to celebrate with my side of the family on Christmas Eve this year, to avoid splitting the day. I believe we arrived to my parents’ home around 10 AM or so, lugging all sorts of gifts/food/wine/etc. E always runs right in and starts pulling out the toys, and this year my Dad had a couple of blinky noses. They were a HIT 🙂
I had to step out for a couple of hours (Elves of Christmas) but once I returned the kiddos were just waking from their nap to start the party. I’m not sure what made Bryce mad, but that face is just awesome…so we knew we had to open some gifts!
After WAY too many gifts, we all decided that this was the last year that we are going to exchange for the adults. The kids can be the focus, and everyone is good with that! I also continued last years’ tradition of buying the cousins matching PJs. Which isn’t easy when you consider they must be cute, non-gender-specific, etc! But I’m so glad I did, because this sweetness just makes my heart want to burst!
I love the holidays, and the littles sure have made it even better than ever!
