College friends!

It can't possible be 15 years that I've lived with these sweet ladies!
Also...
We've been very busy over the last 15 years.

Christmas Morning!

The picture I make everyone take BEFORE they open presents.  It's a sure fire win-win.  No one wants to hold up presents because they're not smiling!






a microphone for the twins...because, they're not loud enough already


The bow and arrow that was a huge hit!
The beloved Hatchimal

A reading chair and books, what more did Sam need?

Olivia needed to do her Lego NOW!

We had a great Christmas morning!

Christmas Eve

 Christmas Eve is so magical.  It's the promise of Christmas before it arrives.  It's so amazing.  We went to church first and then off to Aunt Emily's house.  We finished up on the east side at Mike's Aunt and Uncle house with a very special visit from the big man in red...





 Isn't this an epic shot?  Thanks Mr. Larry for braving the cold to capture that shot.  I adore it!



I love how Sam and the twins were ready and waiting to take pics with Santa!
Off to bed little ones...

Christmas @ Nana's!

Christmas morning at Nana's is a great exclamation point on the holiday season.  We have no less than 1 million presents between all of us and the food is so delicious.  Mom always treats everyone to a special dinner that's to die for.  We love it every year.
It's so fun how everyone comes in pjs to relax the day away!





Peter looks so cute in those jammies!



Eliza got a beauty set that was a huge hit...


Everyone got make-overs whether they wanted one or not.

Hope your holiday was very merry!

Christmas with Grandpa Rob!

Grandpa Rob's Christmas Party is always the "start" of the Christmas Party festivities which means the energy is at all time high.  The spirits flow freely and the food is always amazing.
Always amazing.
So delish.








Look at these beauties!

The traditional Grandpa Rob "pile-up"




 We instituted the "slow open" this holiday season now that our kids are bigger.  We slowed the kids down and let one or two open their gifts at a time.  It was great!  

Thanks for a lovely party and for "launching" our holiday weekend.  
We loved this year's party!
