Holiday Hangover!!!

Wow, that was fun!!! We had a wonderful holiday this year. My kids are old enough to really 'get it' and they were so much fun this year. LOTS of loud yelling and screaming when they opened certains gifts and saw what Santa left them. It was too fun!! Here they are with the big puffy stuffed animals from Santa...


Santa also brought them The Claw. It's a mini version of that claw grabber game you see at the Arcade (where nobody ever wins!!) and it's been going non-stop since Christmas morning. The song it plays is LOUD and there is NO volume adjustment. I must talk to Santa about that...

And Santa never forgets to add Holiday M&M guys to the stockings!


One of Kevin's favorite gifts is a book we got him called Oh Yuck! It's all about gross stuff like farts and boogers and poop and vomit...this was his face when he realized a WHOLE section was dedicated to vomit. AWESOME!!!


Hey...you sunk my Battleship!!!


After the dust settled at home, we went over to my brother-in-laws for a fun, family dinner and celebration!! The weather was gorgeous, Kayla wore her short sleeved dress and sandals and swore she wasn't cold.


And look at this gorgeous dinner table that my sister-in-law set!! Beautiful!!!!

And one last photo, this one of my niece and my daughter. They got these blingy, glittery, COOL shirt and tights from their Grandma and they looked so great together!


Thanks for making it through all those photos!! We had a fabulous time, thanks to all our family for spoiling us completely. We are dealing with the aftermath of bags and boxes and tissue paper and plastic wrap all over the house. But there are no more questions of 'What Can I Do NOW', which is my daughter's favorite thing to say. Because both kids have so many fun things to explore. Hope you all had a great holiday this year. I have some recipes to share with you soon, so stay tuned!!

Thanks for stopping by!
