Christmas Day

posted on: Friday, December 30, 2011

christmas day was a present opening fiasco
that is, after we had to WAKE WES UP!
the gall that kid has to sleep in on christmas morning
i don't know who he thinks he is...
anyway, here we are instagramming ourselves while waiting
very impatiently.

but when we finally made it downstairs we found that santa
had come to our house and brought lots of fun stuff.
(among other things) a leap pad, board games and all the
necessary accessories were left for our resident pirate.
a sophie the giraffe, a cute little dump trunk and lots of zara baby
clothes for the little one (santa has really good taste).
mama and daddy didn't make out so bad either (hello, frye boots!)

aaaaaand he's done.

as marisa would say, now i can get my lisbeth salander on

then we hopped in the car and headed off to my mom and stepdad's house
so many presents

things were going so well...
until my stepbrother got this really scary camoflage knife thingy

and that's when it started to get weird.

ahhh, christmas.

after a delicious lunch at my aunt and uncle's house,
our final stop was Josh's mom amd stepdad's

for more presents.

did i mention my kid is obsessed with angry birds?

and there you have it, christmas 2011
(only 361 more days til the next one...and counting)

Christmas Eve (The Second Day of Christmas...)

posted on: Thursday, December 29, 2011

on christmas eve we made reindeer cookies for santa and got to
 use the cookie plate and mug my grandmother gave us last year.
then we opened presents with josh's dad's side of the family
(or should i say wes opened all the presents).
we also visited josh's grandparents house that night too,
but sadly didn't manage to take any pictures so there's
 no evidence of the AH-MAZING cannolis his grandpa made.
....later, we came home,
set out carrots for the reindeer and read the night before christmas
and finally(!) after the boys were asleep
we got to be busy elves, filling stockings and setting out presents.

christmas eve is, hands down, the best night of the year to be a parent.

On The First Day Of Christmas...

on christmas eve-eve, we celebrated with my dad and stepmom.
there was chicken marsala and mississippi mud pie.
babies in sweaters eating crackers (and ribbon) and
three year olds in star wars hoodies opening everyone's gifts.
There were giant, surprise presents and lots of christmas high-fiving.
you know, all the normal cureton family shenanigans.

stay tuned for days 2 and 3 of christmas coming soon!

and I hope you all had a very merry christmas too
(no matter how many days long it was)
