Maaarrry Kiss-mas!

... and Kiss-mas Pandles (Christmas Candles), Kiss-mas Tee (Tree), Kiss-mas Moo-sic (Music), Kiss-mas Wreaf (Wreath), Kiss-mas Lights... you name it, George loved it and was excited to talk about it!

What a wonderful First Christmas-together-as-a-family we had! All five of us under one roof, now THAT is a Christmas wish come true :) Also a wonderful treat, DB and I caught a few minutes to ourselves with the help of Omi, Mo, Do, and Stefanie... Christmas Eve service and later in the week a morning walking on the beach followed by lunch at one of our favorite places, JCT... it was strange to be alone for so long... we laughed because we found ourselves talking about the kiddos almost the entire time :)

During the the Christmas season, we also had a few unwelcome bugs... Olivia and BB with 48-hour doozies that were no fun but also nothing to really worry about. Samuel, on the other hand, got his first strep throat/ear infection, which is something to worry about. To make a long story short, we have an amazing nurse who is in tune with Samuel, great doctors, and superstar little man - he got better without having to be in the hospital - this is HUGE!

Christmas Day in pictures :)

Christmas morning... not sure who is more excited, the kids with the new toy or the guy with the lit up nose :)

Off to Omi's for Christmas Breakfast... PJ's and all :)

Samuel and Mo look pretty happy :)
(This was a tough decision - the photo I took right before this one was Samuel trying to drive Mo's scooter... the kids loved it!)

Santa was very smart to put a few new trucks in George's stocking!

Miss O wasn't quite ready to pose... but that didn't stop me from taking pictures! ha ha!

I think Samuel likes opening presents... but even more so, playing with the ribbons.

Nice job Uncle Jay - the yellow car was a huge hit!

Woo Hoo - Thomas the Train video!

Oops - the cars got away from George once or twice... but it sure did make for a cute bootie shot :)

Christmas Night... and more presents!
It was great, the opening presents actually lasted for a few days. I suppose next year will be different, so we cherished it even more :)

I'm pretty sure Omi and Olivia are having a good time :)

For me?! Even if it's not, can I open it? Ha ha!

For the most part, they did a great job sharing their new toys...

George could arrange, and rearrange, these pieces all day.

For the most part, Samuel was too busy crawling and pulling up on anything his height to worry about opening presents. Although once we got him started, tearing the wrapping paper was great :)
