Yep, I just went there. I was looking through my camera and FINALLY loading the pictures onto my computer when I saw all of the Christmas pictures that I forgot about.
I saw another blogger post about her Christmas last month, too. So I thought, why not.
I’m not even going to mention how far behind I am on Luke’s updates (I just mentioned it, huh)
Here it is: our 2013 Christmas !
So, my dad came and stayed with us Christmas Eve and we had a yummy dinner of roasted chicken stuffing and mashed potatoes. I DID NOT want to be stuck in the kitchen all day on Christmas like I was on thanksgiving, so my grandma and mom volunteered to make a simple Christmas dinner. So, as to not disappoint the boys, I made a Christmas-like dinner on Christmas Eve. It definitely wasn’t as good as turkey, but it hit the spot. Luke even got to eat some stuffing and mashed potatoes.
Austin didn’t really understand the whole Santa concept, so my cookies and milk tradition didn’t really matter to anyone but me. Oh well, there is always next year.
The boys slept well and we all woke up on Christmas day to a tree packed full of presents.
Of course, we (and by WE, I mean I) had to get a picture of the boys on Christmas day in front of the tree.
Getting a toddler and baby to smile and look at the camera at the same time was a feat in itself.
Luke, look over here … Austin, get the binkie out of your mouth. (notice his TWO “B'” — hoard much?)
Nice smile, Austin…
GREAT … wait, Austin …
Let’s just zoom in/crop just Luke … PERFECT
Look over here, Luke …
Okay, I guess we are done.
Yep, “bam-pa” got a flatbed truck for Austin.
Which one is the present: the ladybug night light or the wrapping paper, Luke?
Austin was so excited about his Buzz and Woody dolls!
Of course, he got a “Choo Choo”
Grandma and GiGi came over to bring boxes full of present!
We had a nice time chatting and playing with the boys and their new toys.
LUKE always love SWING TIME
And of course, if Luke is doing it …
Austin wants to
Cousin Andrew getting some chunky baby time ❤
Auntie Amy is ALWAYS popular with the kiddos
and, of course, Shawna, who is so easy to fall asleep on
Devilish Austin sneaking away …
Christmas lunch consisted of lasagna, garlic bread, salad, and sausage. Everything was so tasty. It was such a treat not to have to spend all day cooking in the kitchen.
Days like this make me look forward to the next holiday or family get-together and I ALWAYS feel like I didn’t get enough pictures.
Merry Christmas …. in January!
