Christmas 2011

 We decorated a gingerbread house on Christmas Eve.

 We went on a marathon walk (nearly 2 miles) and watched that old stop-motion animation movie of how Kris Kringle became Santa Claus and had pizza for dinner.  It is a tradition from Mr N's family to watch a movie and eat pizza on Christmas Eve night. 

 The children got to open one present Christmas Eve - their new pajamas.  We were worried they would take forever to fall asleep, but they both conked out right away.  Apparently the long walk coupled with weeks of anticipation was too much for our little ones.

 Here is the living room after Santa visited!

 Our Christmas tree.

 The children posing with their stockings.

 The baby ponders the joys of Christmas.

We didn't take many pictures of Christmas morning, it's mostly video.  I'll upload that...sometime.  We had a lovely Christmas and hope you did too!

It looks like you had a fabulous Christmas! I love the tradition of having pizza and a movie on Christmas Eve. I would love to do something like that but we have so many family obligations on that night. Just once I'd like to go nowhere for Christmas, and just stay home and veg!

The cutest! Hands down- put that baby in some kind of competition (minus beauty pageants for toddlers SICK) but besides that the WORLD needs to see what a REAL beautiful baby looks like (I mean have you SEEN the weirdos on diaper boxes? Babies obviously wearing tupays? however that's spelled. Anyway- she's the cutest...I rest my case!
