I never blogged Christmas so I am coming back here after the fact and putting some pictures in!
It was fun to have all the kids (Austin could only come for a few days but it was nice) here to celebrate.
I screwed up by not buying "Christmas Pajamas" for the first time ever and everyone let me know that this was a major screw up on my part.
We still took the obligatory "kids in front of the tree" picture.

The kids made sure to point out that they would like that picture better with new Christmas jammies!

Since it was the last year in our house, we tried to get a really big tree.  We ended up with a 12 footer but Frank was hoping to find bigger.  I tooked good though.

  1. Austin's gift treasure hunt is HILARIOUS! I think it would be fun to put one of those together. . . but WAY too much work!
