Ice Skating, School Programs, Presents, Bad Sweater Parties. It all happened!
It's our tradition to go ice skating every Christmas Eve. The kids have gotten better each year and our number of "wall hangers" is on the decline.
Auntie Magi came this year. Mads tore up the ice!
If there's one thing Gramma can't stand, it's a cold baby. She made sure they all stayed warm.
Our outfits for our Bad Sweater party were awesome. I was going for a "Delicious Dish" vibe. Note the glorious mom jeans.
I made Dale's sweater. I mean come on, check out that skill level. Not everyone can cut out a Christmas tree out of green felt and hot glue it onto a women's sweater from the thrift store. Classy! And I thought the working lights were a nice touch.
The girls before their Christmas program at school:
Our way of keeping the kids from seeing the tree before we woke up.
The frenzied gift opening. I didn't take any pics of Race because he had no presents to open. I don't believe in giving Christmas presents to a baby who can't remember it. But now I realize it was stupid to not take any pictures of him. It was his first Christmas! Duh!
We love Christmas! Let's do it all again next year!
