Christmas in Pictures

Merry Christmas! Or Happy Sunday if you don’t celebrate Christmas!

The kids were up at 6am this morning to see if Santa Claus came. Christmas is such a magical time when you’re a kid. And it’s still a magical time for me as an adult because I enjoy making Christmas a special time for my kids.

Christmas Eve

We went to my dad and step-mom’s house in the morning and we went to my grandparent’s house in the evening.

We can’t start off without a picture of me in the car:

My step-brother telling an intense story:

Mimosa Time:

My dad and step-mom got me Asics GT 2160 running shoes. They also got me, Danny, my brother, and sister-in-law a certificate good for one 5k 0r 10k of our choice. That was a pretty cool idea!

I tried these shoes on right away. Yes, they are a giant size 11, but they are so comfortable. I can’t wait to run in them!

The food spread at my grandparent’s house:


One of Jaden’s favorite presents:

Yes, it’s a cheese ball. This kid loves cheese balls.

Trying to eat the cheese ball:


Christmas Morning

Waking up his brother the best way he know how – by jumping on him:

I bought these for Danny, but really they’re for me. Just kidding, but he better share. I’m not kidding about that. Giant Reese’s peanut butter cups.

How dirty boys get clean:

For Christmas morning breakfast, I made cinnamon bread french toast, cheesy hash browns, and scrambled eggs.

My wonderful husband got me a Canon PowerShot S95 camera. I can’t wait to start using it!

Early this afternoon, we’re going to my in-laws and then were going to my mom’s for dinner. Lots more Christmas fun to come!

I hope that you have a magical day!
