Christmas 2011

364 days of preparation......1 night of perfect execution.
This Christmas was simply wonderful. Not that they haven't all been in the past. This year we took a different approach to most gifts though and all the family received homemade goodies. With the boys gifts and the gifts from Santa, we started collecting them throughout the year. By the time Christmas rolled around we had a HUGE collection of gifts for the boys and even surprisingly for each other.
After our Christmas Eve dinner at Nana's we hurried home so Daddy could sprinkle reindeer food on the rooftop. We set out the homemade cookies and a big cup a milk and then all settled in to watch one more Christmas movie before calling it a night.
The long awaited Christmas morning is here.....So much waiting and it's all over and done with in a flash. I think a storm warning could have gone out over our home to prep for the wrapping paper tornado that was about to hit!
This is the super cool EZY Roller that K got. I think at first he was a little disappointed. He thought since it had 3 wheels it just had to be for E. Little did he know.....this thing is a rolling machine!
Daddy and E taking it for a spin:
This thing is cool enough to bring curious neighbors out of their house and to leave little boys watching in amazement.
And with that....Christmas and the rest of 2011 is just about a wrap. It's been a good one. I look forward to spending the last week of the year at home with my babies enjoying some mommy & crazy boy time.


  1. Jess, I saw a feature on morning TV about that rolling machine. It is super cool, and when K. gets used to it he will love it! E. looks really cute in his new cap. Glad you had a great Christmas...lets plan a weekend when we can get together soon, OK? Love to all!

  2. WOW! Can I be a kid at your house on Christmas morning? LOL! Your tree is beautiful! Looks like everyone had a fantastic time. :)
