Christmas Recap! Part One!

We spent the few days leading up to Christmas with my family.  We were super busy with many festivities and I captured a LOT of photos.  Here we go!!

(Not pictured is our annual Red Cup Day. I may do a post of it's own!)

Levi and Cousin Maxwell had matching Grinch jammies again this year!

I compared them to our pictures from last year and wowza - how they've grown!

Sweet brothers.

And I simply can't resist those baby jammies with bum-bum flaps!  AHHH!

I mean, I can't even stand it.  Presh!  He also had a pair that said My First Christmas, but the only photo I have of that is on my phone and I forgot to upload it.  Drat.

Note the "Stompeez" on his feet.  One of his favorite gifts of all time.  He won't take them off!

The next morning the boys woke up to realize that Santa came!!  Levi asked him for a Pizza Planet, a flying helicopter, and a roller coaster.

Santa delivered!!

SO MUCH FUN!

Christmas 2012 was definitely one to remember.  I'm so thankful for my wonderful family.

  6. Just curious....does you mom store all the beautiful china she uses each year for her themed tables, or rent them? I have just 3 sets of dishes and I have a challenge getting them down and up again.
