Here is part 2 of our Christmas festivities! After some sickness and burnout, we ended up not doing everything I originally planned. Not that we tried!
|Joey got the idea of Santa this year! He asked for marbles |
(much to my dismay having a baby who puts everything in his mouth).
For fun, here are his previous Santa pictures.
|Eli didn't scream like Joey did his age, but he wasn't into sitting |
when there is mayhem to cause.
|Christmas eve we debated whether we alls should go to Jessica's house |
since Eli has been throwing up every day for a week,
but none of us wanted to miss the festivities.
Here is Joey having the time of his life with his cousins.
|Yummy cinnamon rolls ;)|
|Enjoying our brunch before Celestine's present rings the doorbell!|
|Jared and Jenny drove all the way from Palo Alto for Christmas!|
|Their little puppy Chloe!|
|Joey was obsessed with her.|
|Reunited never felt so good!|
|Christmas to remember.|
|All the grandkids. Can you tell Sam photoshopped this picture?|
|Favorite thing gift exchange. Sam got Jacob a brain mold since |
Sam is into medicine and Jacob is into AI. Also, Jello is delicious.
|No caption needed.|
|Christmas jammies. A tradition I loved as a kid.|
|Christmas this year was...Oi. We had church at 9, |
plus we were singing in the choir, plus two crazy kiddos,
so we did Christmas morning after church.
|Music instruments. "Joey, what's your favorite instrument?" "CYMBALS!"|
|We went to my parents house later in the day. |
I got my mom a canvas print of my grandparents sledding.
Other activities that had no pictures:
-White Elephant exchange at the Prestwich home
-Temple date on the Hobbs side of the family
-Game night, where we hired our first paid babysitter
-Our attempt to go to River of Lights (we left too late and there was no parking!)
-Another Christmas concert we played for the Albuquerque East Stake
-Last but not least, our friends had their baby! Baby D is adorable and we had the pleasure to take care of their daughter for a few hours the day of while they were in the hospital. We do have a picture of him:
Whew! We are simplifying next year, I'm making that promise to myself!
