Christmas Time Part 1

Merry Christmas everyone! We have had a wonderful Christmas this year and I hope you did  too. We are actually not done yet with our Family Christmas rounds. We still have one more stop this Saturday. But I thought I would get started with the Christmas posts, since I think it's going to take several posts to get the job done.  We started with Christmas with Bic and Pops and the rest of the Head Family.

Vimmer opened his first present and as you can see had to taste it.

This the the family picture we took...or maybe I should say an attempt of a family picture.

The Head Family Christmas

The boy cousins getting into some trouble I am sure.

Christmas Eve we were off to Candle Light service. Vimmer did not want to sit still for a picture of course. I love coordinating the boys outfits to match or compliment each other. I know I am not going to be able to do this for long so I try to do it as often as I can.

We have a tradition of opening one present on Christmas Eve. And that present is always matching PJs for the family. This year we had 'Fish' pajama pants.

Poor William wasn't feeling good Christmas Eve. He fell asleep in the car while looking at Christmas lights and wasn't able to even put cookies out for Santa. He started feeling better Christmas day fortunately. More pictures to come!

A Face Only a Mother Could Love

We are getting 4 teeth right now so teething biscuits are a must. I hate 'dirtiness' like this but desperate times call for desperate measures. Needless to say he went straight to the bath!

How to Make a Ginger Bread House:

First you bake all the pieces of the ginger bread house.

Haha, had you fooled for a second didn't I?
Nah, what you really do...First you go to your local store and buy a ginger bread house kit.

Then you use your imagination and many treats and decorate your house. 

Next, let them dry for a bit. And then (here is the trick--since we are not eating them)...

HOT GLUE the sides together to form a house. I mean why fuss with a bunch of icing and having to wait for it to dry. It was the best advice given to me.

Finally- ohh and awe over your finished creation.

A little Christmas Tune....

Being a mom of 2 boys that would not be discribed as calm, meek, reserved, or quiet, I personally find this video very normal. I can totally see William doing this. Watch the little boy to the left of Ernie Ford.

Why we are glad when Daddy comes home...

Free leg rides around the house.

Fresh energy that Mommy is running low on....

Lots of Hugs...

And even kisses...

We love you Daddy! Thank you for always coming home in a fun mood, ready to play with us.
You're the highlight of our day!

Annual Christmas Tree Lighting

For the past few years we have met our our good friends, The Allens, at the local tree lighting. This year it was super cold which made it truly feel 'Christmasy'. It is always hard for me to feel festive, when it is 80 degrees out, your in flip flops, and we are counting down to light the giant Christmas tree...something just doesn't add up. But this year we did not have that problem! Some of the highlights were face painting, elves on stilts, and the 'snow' machines (they blow foam).   William got his face painted like Rudolph--it was so stinkin cute.

Daddies on baby duty while the mommies took the older boys for face paint.

The Allen family. I know we took a family picture but I can't seem to find it.

And finally, William thought it was funny to put his face in point blank range of the foam shooter. He was feezing later but it was hilarious.
