Motherhood Mondays: Christmas Recap

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was very nice and mostly low key.  I wasn't sure how I would handle the day thinking about my brother, but as usual Phillip did an awesome job of making sure that I stayed happy and had plenty else to think about.

Be prepared for picture overload here!  A few days before Christmas we had a get together with my Dad because he headed out of town for Christmas.  Phillip gave out the handprint ornaments that we made and they were a huge hit!  We also celebrated some birthdays because there are four December birthdays in my family one of which is on Christmas Day and another on Christmas Eve!

We spent Christmas Eve at my Mom's house.  My grandmother got Phillip and Natalie the sweetest gifts.  Phillip got a new piece for his Thomas train track and she got Natalie a little soft baby doll.  We had a really nice time and my mom made an amazing dinner of course!

Me and my mom and two sisters.
When we got home, Phillip and I got ready for Santa by putting out some cookies and milk.  He was VERY excited.

Christmas morning was spent at our house with my in laws and sister and brother in law.  The kids got way too many toys and had a great time.  I made a delicious cinnamon roll cake for breakfast that was devoured.  I'll share the recipe soon.

Coming down to the living room... he was SO excited!!  The snowman PJ's are from Smocked Threads by Cecil and Lou.

He spots the presents!

I actually managed to get some sweet shots of the two littles by the Christmas tree but I realized as I was writing this that I never got them off the camera!  More for later this week I guess.  Tonight we are keeping it super low key.  My Dad and stepmother are coming over to watch some movies and have snacks and champ.  I've been dying for an occasion to make champagne jello shots so we will be enjoying some of those while we ring in the new year in comfy pj's :)

Here's wishing y'all a wonderful New Year's Eve and I'll see you in 2013!
