{Our Christmas....}

Wow...I can't believe how fast Christmas comes and goes. I hate to see (almost) all the Christmas come down.... that's why I still left a few "wintery" things around....

 We had a wonderful Christmas spending time with all our family.
Every Christmas Eve we celebrate with Eddies family at their house.  We had the cutest snowman cake made out of cupcakes  by our sweet and talented niece, Claudia.




 before we go the kids get to open their new pj's to wear. Which is a tradition we started a couple years ago. 


 Avery got matching pj's for her and her doll, Emily : )

Then on Christmas morning we actually got to wake up before the kids and start it off with this....




We love watching the excitement of the kids opening their gifts, but a new excitement this year was also watching pilot open his gifts from his stocking... 




Avery gave each one of us handmade (from the house) gifts. It was so sweet and she was so happy to give them to us. She started this tradition last year and it's something I will treasure forever.


 Pilot loved his first Christmas!
 Avery and Emily Christmas morning with matching hair and pj's ; )

After presents we have a big breakfast together that I make every year....

I made breakfast casserole, fruit, and red velvet pancakes that the kids cut out with Christmas cookie cutters.

The day after Christmas we took off for a little getaway here...

be back with more on that later ; )

Happy New Year everyone!!
