Merry Christmas!

From Evanston to San Antonio!

Our Christmas started on Christmas Eve Eve. Uncle Jonny and Aunt Lisa came over and brought dinner. We watched Elf and put the kids to bed.

Isa’s dream came true and she got a make-up set. The random lines of blue eye shadow down her nose or on her forehead are from this make-up set.

Jimmy showed up for a few moments. Poor guy is so sick. He’s had a fever for 9 days straight and will hardly eat or drink anything.

He just wants to sleep.

In a nutshell… We had a wonderful holiday breakfast at Nathan and Leticia’s and a superb holiday dinner at Mom and Dad’s house cooked by Jacob. I am full and the kids are tired and the Bulls won!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Fun!

We had Christmas with the Harrisons. It’s nice to spread out the gift opening. The kids got to play together and go to a cookie party that was decked out with as many sprinkles as you could ever want.

Isla and Rosie playing babies.

oh no, I dropped the baby.

DSC02249

Isla made it all better.

Jimmy was playing with a fire truck book. He would push this one button and laugh hysterically. I can’t remember what it said but it was something like, “we are on our way” and then Jimmy would bust out laughing.

Cousin Olivia wanted to join the fun!

Present Time! Jimmy’s said, I’ll be back!

DSC02339

Tessa made sure he stuck around.

Marc will kill me for posting this picture but check out his cool shirt. All the Chicago sport teams are represented.

Cookie party fun. Check out the table. There are fresh flowers, cookies, sprinkles, frosting, and a the most scenic view out the window with bird feeders and red robins galore!

DSC02389

and yummy treats right behind us!

Rosie decorated her leg.

She chatted and laughed with Isla. I think that icing is in our minivan right now. I’m not sure how I missed that…she’s such a stinker!

Isa fell asleep on the way home. I think it’s been over a year since she has fallen asleep in the car. That’s what I call good fun!
