Christmas at Dad's.

From Santa's visit, to my Mom's, we finish off the fun packed day at my Dad's. Not one event is less exciting than the one before, though by the end of the night, everyone is stuffed, spoiled rotten, and a little bit crabby! We had a joyful day with lots of love. Celebrating Christmas with children makes the day even more exciting. It's true- you can really see so much love and happiness through their eyes.
Merry Christmas! :)








Christmas Morning with Mom

We run from Santa's visit to my mom's. The cousins have a great time together as do all of us. It's fun to see the excitement on all the cousins faces... even if it's mass chaos... can't really complain when there are 12 kids 7 and under! :)

Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas Eve at home hanging out. We went to church and then went to my mom's for dinner and family time with my mom, The Connelly's, Grandma and the Stawicki's. It was another great holiday day!

Cookie Party 2013

We missed our annual cookie decorating party last year, but we were back in full force this year and it was a fun time! :) The kids still have the idea that more is better! They made some crazy cookies, but overall, the decorating skills are getting good! I wish I took more pictures of the actual cookies.

Christmas in Milwaukee 2013

Christmas was great. The kids did well, and we all had a wonderful time. We had hoped for a sleepover, but a big storm was coming in so we left later in the evening. Either way, the Christmas together was filled with laughs and fun. The kids were spoiled rotten with clothes, legos, coloring items, money and more. We of course were spoiled too. The highlight this year was Blake. It didn't matter what he opened... "This is the best gift ever! I love it!" Nothing better than a kid that is excited to open your gift.
