Christmas Day!

On Christmas Day we get up and do the Santa thing and gifts. Then my parents & aunt & cousins come to our house for breakfast.  At some point during the day we go back over to my mom & dad's house for yet more gifts. It is always an argument between me and my sister as to what time we are going to meet up. Since her son gets up at 3:00 am on Christmas, and she won't come to my house for breakfast, she is ready to meet at my parents house early in the day. Not me. I am all about the leisurely breakfast, and taking things slow. Basically after the hustle and bustle of getting ready for Christmas I want to enjoy the day and not be rushed.  So after we duke it out agree on a time, we head over to my parent's house. Honestly, this is the kids' favorite part of Christmas. Santa can't compete with gifts from Grandma & Grandpa.

 Liam and Parker.
The orthodontist is going to see Parker's mouth and $$ are going to flash in his eyes!
 Jessa and Sonny wearing the cute scarves that Liam made.
 Parker got a monkey nutcracker from my mom.
Sonny made the boys Harry Potter scarves. Parker got Slytherin - his favorite house! That should tell you something about the kid!
 Preston sporting his Gryffindor scarf.
Besides his grandsons, my dad's pride and joy is his garage. I am surprised he doesn't keep his La-Z-Boy & TV out there.
My mom got the boys matching pink bunny slippers from A Christmas Story. Preston & Parker loved them. Liam was disgusted.
Seriously, it is embarrassing how much stuff there is for so few people!
My Mom, a.k.a. Grandma Chickie


  1. You'd kick her ass! K.

  2. Such cool scarves! I've always been envious of people who could knit and/or crochet. A love the bunny slippers! I also love the picture with Preston's head peaking above the abundance of wrapping paper and packages ... a true sign the boys are blessed! ...j

  3. Your parents still look young. Fun pictures of your family. Lisa.
