next up was our Christmas celebration with mimi, popo, aunt maddy. aunt hettie, uncle mac, macee and rylee were there too. what a sweet time to spend with family.
the girls have an annual tradition of getting their nails done on Christmas Eve and I thought gianna was old enough to try it this year. well, we got to the chair, but that's all. she didn't want to hand over those precious fingernails to the nice lady. oh well, there's always next year!
while toby and i took roman to church on Christmas Eve, the other kids got to decorate some gingerbread men
roman got legos!
gianna got a little people travel nativity set
no, you can't ever un-see this
the ugly sweater club
with the kids safely tucked into bed, we anxiously awaited the arrival of santa on Christmas morning. when we all awoke the next morning, we saw that santa had read roman's note and eaten all the cookies and drank the milk too!
santa must have had lots of help bringing all these presents inside!
gianna was the first kiddo awake and she had a good time scoping it all out while the others were slowly making their way to the tree.
what did santa bring roman?
and what did gianna get from the big man?
macee got a new camera and was practicing on the kids...
aren't these great pics?
gianna got a little bit of cuddle time in with mimi before we left on Christmas afternoon.
even though we brought the stomach bug up and infected 95% of our family members, we still had a great time and loved every minute at mimi's house! thank you, mimi, popo and aunt maddy for all the fun, food and family time. we love you SO very much!
