Christmas Eve was spent with my side of the family. We had dinner with my extended family at my grandma's then my parents and siblings came to my house to exchange gifts.
|Daddy had to be at church so he missed our family photo|
|Girlfriends outfit cracks me up|
The dress I had originally picked was somehow ruined prior to her wearing it so I improvised
|The loot from my parents and siblings|
|These two love each other|
|Christmas jammies from Nana|
|Her favorite part of opening presents|
|Thanks Uncle Timmy|
I was a bit nervous about Christmas morning after such an extravagant Christmas eve, but it went great!
Bob and I chose to give each child two gifts and one to share. We did this for two reasons:
1. We're on a tight budget.
2. I don't want them to get lost in consumerville and miss the purpose of what we're celebrating.
Bray and Avery seemed to love their gifts and we enjoyed a couple hours in our jammies eating chocolate chip scones.

|They love their kitchen!|
Bob's family has polish heritage so this is their traditional Christmas dinner.
Another round of gifts and delicious food was had.
|Aunt Peggy made the boys these matching spiderman hats|
It was a hit to say the least!
|She made the girls these amazing hats, as well|
|Loves to chat, this one|
|I can't believe this toy has made a comeback!|
And I love the Christmas lights.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with the ones they love.
