Christmas PJs

I made these PJs last year.
I wasn't feeling too motivated this year.
So, I just gave my mom the extra fabric and she whipped up a pair for Andrew.
Love me some matching jammies!

Christmas Day

I think that this was my favorite Christmas we’ve ever had.
Everything is so magical, and I love the stages Matt and Lindsay are in.
Every present was “Just what they wanted.”

Matt got spider-man gloves and a blue light saber (just what he asked for).
Although, his favorite part, may have been the surprise fruit snacks!
Lindsay got her tea-set, dress ups, and a Barbie.
I got a new vacuum (yay!) and Darin got a book he’s been wanting.
It was the PERFECT Christmas morning!!

Christmas Eve

We had a WONDERFUL Christmas Eve this year.
We were able to spend the evening with Darin’s side of the family.
Uncle Al and Aunt Vicki were very generous in hosting our large group.
We had a delicious dinner, a fun nativity, and an exciting gift exchange.

The yummy food (This is only the appetizers). 

I think Darin’s mom is so pretty.

Linds and Liv.

Linds and Wendy.

Uncle Rick teaching Andrew to balance.

They managed to do a sit down dinner for over 30 people!

Lindsay the Angel getting ready for the Nativity.

Luke really is a "Wise Man."

Getting ready to open gifts.

We got home late, and Andrew was DONE, and you can tell the kids are TIRED!!

But we managed to get our jamies on, cookies out, with a special note with carrots for Rudolf.

A WONDERFUL Christmas Eve!
Thanks Mom and Dad, Al and Vicki, and everyone else for all your work and gifts!
