What an amazing holiday time!
Even though we are are not able to spend it with all of our friends and family, we do have a lot to be grateful for.
Big Grandma is out of the hospital and able to enjoy it with us. We are all healthy. And Courtney has a break from his business travel! What more can we ask for?
Our chiropractors hosted a Pajama Party that included a visit with Mr. & Mrs. Claus! Not only that, but we were able to help others by donating PJs so that other children could enjoy a new set for the holidays.
Yes, the girls were with us. No, they would not even stand next to Santa. Maybe next year ...
Christmas Eve ServicesWe sure missed our traditional Christmas Eve services at the UU in Montclair, NJ. AND we missed wearing our footie pajamas to service. I think it was smart to just show up in festive shirts to a new church. It seemed we could easily overwhelm them.
Not only did we get to share the time with fellow UU's, but we had another awesome chance to catch up with the Tantes! Of course, the Grinch still went to service with us. Couldn't let that tradition stop. He always needs some church on Christmas Eve.
Christmas DayIt must of worked. Look at how hungry the reindeer and Santa were ...
No Peeking!Rules are - 1) Wait until 8am, 2) Daddy HAS to have his coffee first.
Tada! I think it was worth the wait.
What beautiful children.
Oh - another gift popped up! Here's Emma.
Look at her favorite gift. She loves her chocolate!
Of course, we had to eat again! This Christmas it was Chinese. Yum.
Finally, it was time to take Big G home. It was a great day!
