The Holidaze

Another Holiday season has come and gone and since it was weeks ago and I failed to blog sooner this will probably be short and sweet with lots of pictures.  We've made it an unofficial tradition to have a quiet Christmas Eve and Christmas morning as a family.  I always woke up in my own room/house and I want my children to do the same.  We make breakfast burritos Christmas Eve for dinner, watch Christmas movies, and open one present; new pajamas.  Christmas morning we make mimosas, monkey bread and start in on the stockings.  This year Rollie and I only gave each other pajamas and stocking stuffers. Lily got pretty spoiled and Piper didn't get much because, well, she doesn't know better.  We got Lily a big stuffed Minnie Mouse puzzles, Disney princess figurines, egg carton shape sorter, queen elsa nightgown, and a wooden camera.  That afternoon Grandma Janet arrived and Lily had Christmas round 2 with a leap frog jr and some books to go along, stickers, and coloring books.  Piper got some cute onesies and a wooden train that Lily of course took over.  Kristen and Kerry came over that night for dinner along with Brian and his parents.  Kristen and Kerry got Lily a xlyphone and the DVD of all the classic Christmas movies.  They also spoiled us with a fancy wine opener, silicone wine glass charms and the most thoughtful canvas print of one of our family pictures.

We managed to cross a decent amount of Christmas to-do's off our list too...seeing Christmas lights, visiting Santa, baking lots of cookies, making chex mix, the calistoga tractor parade, making ornaments for family, sending Christmas cards and of course lots of Holiday libations.

As cliche as it may sound the Holidays really are more fun with kids!
