…and a Happy New Year! :)
We had a really great Christmas this year but I must say that I’m happy to have my house back! Between the tree and all of the decorations, this tiny house fills up fast! We got to see most of our large and amazing family throughout the season and felt very blessed.
We spent Christmas eve evening at my parents with lots of food and friends. Every year my Mom hosts anyone who wants to come and we play board games and laugh all night.
Luke woke up in his adorable Calvin Klein pj’s on Christmas eve and we kept him in them all day because he was so cute! We were calling him Baby Hefner. Probably not cool to compare him to an 84 y/o perv, but that’s what his pajamas reminded me of!
Sarah and Claire trying to build a gingerbread house. We were unsuccessful. Note to self: next year buy pre-assembled house, just decorate :)

Christmas morning Tommy’s family (Mom, sister, brother, niece, and nephew) came over for breakfast. While Tommy and I fixed breakfast they played with Luke and let him open a couple of his presents. They stayed until around 1:00 in the afternoon.

Luke was mildly interested in his new toys, but mostly wanted to play with his plastic cups. He’s been carrying cups around for a couple of weeks now.

When they left we headed to my parents for the rest of the day/evening. Luke got more toys and lots of kisses from his aunts.
He wanted to sit in his car spinner

Tommy decided to become addicted to the pinball machine in my parents basement after 10 years of paying it no attention.
Then, for New Year’s we went to Jeff and Emily Lindamood’s wedding. We had a great time, but I didn’t have my camera and nobody has posted pictures to steal on facebook yet, so I’ll have to save those for later.
