Christmas Celebrations

We woke up Christmas morning and opened our stockings. John got some lego Star Wars things that he wanted

Box wine for me!

The dogs got stockings too

Then we opened our big presents so we didn't have to lug them to my brother's.

Pretending to be surprised by the gift that he already knew he was getting.

You see that hair? I don't miss it.

Yes we wrapped the empty KitchenAid box

We drove up to North Austin to my brother's for our family combined with my SIL's family Christmas.

This is the pile of presents for my niece and nephew. Whatever happened to present piles that big?

Here's my little brother, mom and dad

My nephew was being so delicate opening presents. In fact both he and my 1 year old niece would tear off a piece of paper and hand it to you.

IMG_5816

We told him to rip it open and he was a little appalled

IMG_5819

John took his little hand and showed him how to punch open this one. Once he realized how fun it was he went to town on this present

Isn't that an awesome little couch? It folds out into a bed too. We convinced him to open his presents on it.

I got a recipe binder!

Guitar Hero 5!

He also got Gears of War. If you're looking for my husband. He's on the couch playing his Xbox. He got 3 new games for Christmas.

John got me this cool wine preserver set. It's a little cork thing and then it creates a vacuum to keep the bottle sealed. AWESOME!

Zebra print flats. Love them!

IMG_5843

Ben got a guitar (not from us)

IMG_5844

Tio John shows him how to play

IMG_5849

So excited

IMG_5850

Then I wandered to the other present pile just in time to see my niece open her favorite present

IMG_5855

Look! It's a mailbox!

IMG_5865

Ben got so tired he had to lay down and open presents

IMG_5866

Once she got on this thing (from my grandpa, she can push herself, it has a rocker and it has foot holders and a handle so her mom can push her) she stopped opening presents all together. She was done. I had to take presents to her while she was on it to get her to open anything else.

My mom was really excited about some floral design books John (I) got her.

IMG_5875

This scarf was also a present from John

IMG_5884

My dad also grew out a Christmas beard. His didn't take nearly as long as John's did.

IMG_5891

Once Lizzie went down for a nap Ben was all over her present

IMG_5896

After we ate Ben wanted to play with every toy he got. Tio John, can you blow up my ball pit?

IMG_5899

We eventually got a hand pump. Ben loved it!

The next night we met up with John's brother and his kids for dinner and more presents.

Polly Pockets!

IMG_5902

Liv Doll (I had no idea what those things were)

IMG_5903

We got dinner and a movie. Yay!

IMG_5904

Hope everyone else had a fabulous Christmas as well!

  1. I miss the days when the piles of gifts were big for me. Oh well! I am thankful for sweat pants and Wii games.
