In fact, our Christmas eve started with Grandpa's hands busy tickling 2 little someones....a good start to our celebration (ignore the unsightly cords under that black table-thank you)
The boys were excited to introduce their new skunk friends.
We played our annual game of Scrambled States of America. The game brought lots of laughs....especially when Sam decided to emcee the game.
It was so much fun watching the boys take items out of their stockings. Each time they would pull out a candy cane...(organic and natural-I was so excited to find those)...they would cheer ....."a.candy.cane!....another candy cane!....3 candy canes?!!". I've never heard or seen anyone get so excited over candy canes....it was very sweet(literally).
Two very excited boys.
I surprised G and had my blog made into a book.....if you blog, I highly recommend doing this.
My mom and dad had their whole house decorated.....it was very festive.
This table held lots of delicious food (you outdid yourself mom).....it also held family from near and far.
The cousins patiently waited for the presents to be handed out....we had a plan and we stuck to it. It worked great....a very calm and orderly unwrapping system.
The dessert table was a popular spot.
Of course, Mr and Mrs Claus were there to enjoy all of it.
We hope you all had a Merry Christmas.
