Merry Christmas! Photo Post

Merry Christmas!

Here are a few photos from Christmas morning.  Enjoy!

Here are most of the children, singing Happy Birthday to Baby Jesus!  (That’s a lemon loaf, which went very well with my black coffee.)

Let the chaos begin!

For those of you who might like ideas for your own children.  Here’s what we gave each child:

  1. One wrapped present, which was a clothing item and a book
  2. One Christmas stocking, which contained a “fun” toy, new socks, and candy

The little girls wearing their new dresses and playing with their “new” baby dolls, which aren’t actually new. They came from my grandmother, who wanted to pass them along, so that’s what they got in their Christmas stockings.

And yes, we still adhere to our “One In, One Out Rule.”  In other words, if a doll comes in, a doll goes out.  This year, prior to Christmas, the girls had already given away a doll to charity.  If this seems confusing, see my post on Toys HERE.

She was super pumped about her “new” baby doll, and wouldn’t put it down.  “Mom!  Her eyes really blink!”

Here are the boys modeling their new saint socks and swim trunks.

I don’t even know what this tool is, but he was excited about it.  It was from Grandma and Grandpa.

She wanted her nails painted for the occasion.

This is me and The Eldest at a later Christmas party.  Merry Christmas!
