christmas {a photo gallery}

 then one foggy christmas eve...

christmas morning.

   the only picture of me.
i was taking it for kelsey.
she sent the shirt from india.
max slept through half of christmas morning b/c we were out late looking at lights.
brennan thought all of her toys were his toys.
he never ate.
the entire day.
b/c he wanted to play with toys.
i loved it.
except when he woke up screaming in the middle of the night b/c he was starving.
back to bed.
i packed everything up in my color coordinated christmas bins last night.
except the tree.
it gets to stay up until new year's.
or until the kids demolish it.
whichever comes first.
i'm tired now :)
 the end.

Clearly, they had a ball! Thanks for taking so many pictures. I wish I had done better. I think I only got one the whole weekend. It was just having too much fun, and I didn't remember to think about photos.

My excuse is the same as Sue's. I didn't get a single pic of Gavin. Oh well. I'll try harder next year, when it will mean a little more to him. It looks like you guys had a blast! Love those hats, I'm assuming the were made by someone special?

I had fun laying out Gavin's stocking and gifts from Santa. I kept his new red ball unwrapped as well as his elmo dvds and he new right where to go when we walked him out to the tree. He was pretty excited! Glad you had a great Christmas!! Ryan says he misses it already. I told him we could keep celebrating it and buy more gifts ;). But alas, I took all the Christmas Ornaments down and the really christmasy decor down (but I'm leaving the gold start garlands and stuff up until after new years). I'm not ready to say goodbye for another year quite yet.
