Christmas 2010

Well, Christmas has come and gone. Things have been a little hectic here, what with the three Christmas celebrations and both Jamie and Dave getting sick. But I wanted to get a few pictures up that capture the weekend -- before the 2011 craziness begins.

 Here is Jamie with his favorite present: the Fisher Price Big Wheels Garage. We searched long and hard to find a toy as cool as the vintage FP garage Jamie loves to play with at Val's house. Spending over $200 on eBay seemed a little cooky, so I was happy to find a pretty cool substitute. James LOVED this toy. After he had been playing with it for 30 minutes, I contemplated taking all of his other presents from under the tree and saving them for his birthday.

 Kara is showing off the mini fairies she got. What is is about princesses and fairies? They never fail to disappoint. I hope that I can prevent these pixies from being eaten by our unruly dog.

I felt the need to get Jamie his own Phillies hat. He has been borrowing his sister's. Shockingly, their heads are the same size. Big brain in that boy, right? He wore it for approximately 12 seconds. Yep, that's my hand in the picture trying to get him to leave it on for one photo. And by the way, Santa does, in fact, rock.

 This is Kara at the end of the day. See that crazed look in her eye? She doesn't even know what present she is holding anymore. Total and complete overload.

This picture embodies how I think we all felt by the end of the day. Sadly, this was taken around 2 PM.

After Christmas we got a huge snow storm. So fun. We bundled up Jamie in his snow suit so he could brave the sub-freezing temperatures. He looked so cute, and actually loved the snow -- except for the fact that he could barely walk.

Dave got  new lens for his camera and a tripod. Here is one of the amazing pictures he took.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
