Christmas Day!

 Christmas day was a wonderful day (despite me still be sick, sick sick!)  We woke up at Nannie and Papa's house to find that Santa had come!  We were all so excited to see the MANY gifts under the tree.  The kids got everything they wanted and more and I even got my Epiphanie camera bag from my very own Santa :)  Later in the morning the boys came over with their families and I got to see my cutie patootie nephews on their first Christmas!  Next we headed over to Uncle J and Aunt L's for Christmas dinner.  There were so many people there and we all had a great time!  It really is wonderful to be with family for the holidays :)

Christmas Eve!

Christmas has come and gone. It's amazing how quickly the day goes by when you have done so much prep work! The kids were totally stoked by all of the family love and attention, not to mention the piles of gifts left by Santa! We spent Christmas Eve with my side of the family at Aunt Sue's and then Christmas Day at the MacDonald side of the family. It was just awesome, despite me being deathly ill and having to medicate to make it through...but I still managed to capture some of the moments in picture. Did you expect anything less, hahahaha!

Our wonderful extended family!

Elf on a Shelf

I am one of those moms. The moms that have an Elf that is fun and creative....it's an obsession at this point and now it is also imperative. The kids wake up each morning and run into my room asking me where Elfie may be that morning. He was a bit of a slacker last night and ended up on a "shelf" with some Willow Tree figures. I think the poor kids were disappointed.

All moved in!

We moved into our new house about two weeks ago! It's an ongoing process but it's been nice having our own space. We know that we will be here for at least a couple of years (thanks to NH laws changing so that we can't buy until 3 years after our short sale in CA!) We have decorated for Christmas and got our first real Christmas tree. Elfie has even come back to visit this year and to ensure the kids get on Santa's good list. They have been a bit iffy lately with the behavior but all in all they are just kids being kids, even if it drives me bonkers at times ;-)
