i'm going to make this quick...which isn't normally in my nature to do. BUT my ice cream is melting - baby weight...what baby weight?
it's 232PM on a Tuesday and I'm blogging and eating a pint of Ben & Jerry's. What else can I say;)
the holidays were good. Great. Grand. Wonderful:)
there was some sickness. And lots of baby fits: I want the ball. But I don't want you to give me the ball. DO NOT SET THE BALL DOWN. Now hold me. Not like that. But I can't tell you how. BUT NOT LIKE THAT. Harder. I hate you. I hate this. I hate you. I hate it all.
wahhhhhhhhh. Babies;) - and by babies...I mean my 1-1/2 year old!:)
so here is our Christmas in...52 photos...good lord...I might break the Internet with this load!!;)
i'm seriously considering putting up some twinkle lights year round...this kids were fascinated!!:)
a lot of Christmas Firsts this year, including visiting Santa's Reindeer!!:)
gosh she's perfect...when she's not being a lunatic!!!;)
doing the annual Present Wrapping. The kids hated it. Didn't understand it. Fought over which wrapper paper was used. Fuck it.
our Traditional Christmas Eve at my Aunt Pam's:) Always so festive and packed with people. I love it. This year was especially bitter-sweet. My grandpa attended for the first time in many years...maybe 10? My grandma, who needed his constant care - she suffered from Alzheimer's for 15 years - passed away shortly before Thanksgiving. I'm sad but happy to see his face again:)
3 out of 4 sisters and dad:)
she wanted to be in the picture...just not IN the picture. ;)
and we were missing about 12 of the regulars!:)
never a dull moment!!! GAMES!!!
kid games...Homer + a face covered in butter + a plate of Cherrios = no amusement.
This also ended with all the children having a red rash on their faces for the next hour!!!;)
papa strikes again - at least it was washable marker this time!!!!;)
Christmas morning at home, with my favorites:)
homer did have a fancy new pair of Christmas Pajamas but he shit through those...ahhhh, Christmas Diarrhea;)
and Christmas afternoon at Mal's:)
when you order relatively expensive Gap Christmas PJ's and have them 2-day shipped to get here ON Christmas Eve so that you can Instagram an adorable photo of 3 perfectly matching toddlers...
theo and her new baby:)
anddddd Christmas evening at my in-laws:)
my lack of photo-taking is sad! Adding Point and Shoot Camera to next year's Christmas Wish List!
i can hardly believe another holiday has come and gone. And with Rocky here, celebrating as a family of 5:) It has been so great:)
next year, we did take note, that we need to get our shit together justttt a bit. There was some confusion as to who 'knows' and who doesn't 'know'. More discreet conversations, etc;). Santa has kinda been flying by the seat of his pants these last few years because he's been dealing with babies and kiddos with wonderful short term memories and no serious curiosity when it comes to large boxes arriving at our door in the weeks leading up to Christmas;)!!! But that's all about to change!!!!!:)
we hope you had a wonderful Holiday! Now...2016:):)
