Lucas & Kate's elf, Aloysius. He reported to Santa every night how good they both were so that Santa would bring them everything on their lists.
We lit a menorah for little Kate...in honor of her birthfamily. (She also got some cool vintage dreidels from her Aunt Stacey & Uncle Neil).
Lucas gets a sharp new hat from Dorothy.
...and a Speed Racer car that has so many cool action features!
Hey, Santa...you left your hat, you silly!
Santa! You got me that big-boy bike with NO TRAINING WHEELS! Its the coolest!
Miss Kate got a new high chair - she LOVES it!
Some of our decorations...our collection of nativity scenes.
The coffee table decorations were SO TEMPTING for Kate now that she can pull herself up to it!
Our Christmas tree(s) - a bosque of 5 live trees, one in Jeff's new antique kids' wheelbarrow.
Christmas Eve dinner with Grammy & Stacey & Neil. Complete with Prime Rib, Yorkshire Pudding & Crackers to pop for our Christmas crowns & silly jokes (what's up with that British humor?)
Grammy gives Kate some walking lessons. Kate is sporting her cousin Emma's "Baby's First Christmas" sleeper. Thanks little Ems!
Do I really have to pose in front of the presents when I'd much rather be ripping into them!
Gratuitous shot of my little cowpokes - two days before Christmas. Lucas wanted to wear his new boots & he is wearing MY FRINGE JACKET FROM WHEN I WAS HIS AGE (talk about bringing tears to my eyes)! Miss Katie Bug is sporting some fancy red ropers (Justin, of course!)
