Christmas has come and gone and it was all a blur, but a good blur. Christmas Eve we spent at Great Grandma Marcroft’s house, had taco soup, ate goodies and celebrated with reading the story of Christ’s birth and singing hymns (and a few carols too!)
Christmas morning when we got up Sammy went running out only to come sulking back to our room. When I asked what was wrong he said, “Santa didn’t come last night” (I don’t know what he was expecting?) so I said, “of course he did” and we walked out together and we found a few presents to Sammy and Nate from Santa and then he was excited! We waited for Nate to wake up and then opened their presents. They got lightsabers, Jedi cloaks, Darth Vader masks, matching Clone Wars shirts (do you see a theme here?), oh and a few trains, train/plane DVDs and some Mercer Mayer books. They were more than pleased!
Later on in the morning we headed to the Badalamenti’s house for a yummy brunch and lots of fun playing, oh and of course some fun presents!
Then we headed to my mom’s house (no nap for Nate :( we were in for a disaster) to take family pictures at the park and then have dinner and open Christmas presents. They had fun with their cousins (and Lizzie and Natalie even painted Sammy up with their makeup-sigh!) The night got too late too quickly and before we knew it Christmas was over.
Here are a few pictures that I took on the Sunday before Christmas with the boys all spiffed up! Sammy was a bit hyper so I didn’t get a solo of him but some of them turned out nice for a little point and shoot camera!
