Our merry Christmas (Eve)

What a great Christmas we are having! I say “are having” because it’s not over ’til I go back to work on the 3rd. Or maybe til New Year’s Eve. Anyway, it’s still happening, in my opinion.

Let’s see…our Christmas….

We spent Friday with friends and family. First we went to our friend’s house for gumbo. My mom used to make gumbo on Christmas eve (at least until she started making oyster & artichoke soup, yum) so it felt right to have it that day. Yum. The boys, being picky, only ate plain rice. But they ate a lot of it, so whatever.


Then they went and played with the other kids, which was awesome. A nice contrast to holidays past, where they spent them glued to my side.

We then went to George’s grandpa’s house so he could see the boys. They got their first Christmas presents from Granny & Grandpa, some laptops that made the ones I got them look lame. (So those will stay in the closet til next Christmas, I guess.)

After everyone ate some pizza (or threw it on the floor, thus earning himself a time out) we went outside to run around and jump in the leaves.


(or all over Grandpa)

and they said hi to Great-Grandpa Sam

Oliver got some flying practice in

And then we went home and put on jammies

and put out cookies and milk for Santa

and then went to sleep…zzzz….

    Merry Christmas and what a great write-up of all the festivities! My favorite part has to be seeing Aunt Kiki’s cookies! We received our care package too and it’s become one of my favorite gifts – yumm!
