Christmas 2014

Christmas 2014 was a lovely day spent relaxing and resting as 3 of the 5 of us were sick with one ailment or another. Despite the lack of perfect health, we each enjoyed the joy and magic of Christmas day.

 Belle & Peanut rose way, way, way too early and around 7 we let them wake up lil Bear and come downstairs. Every year we snap Easter and Christmas pics on the staircase. It is fun to see how much the littles (and the decor around them..lol) have changed over the past 5 years.

I am happy to report that everyone made it onto Santa's nice list this year. Belle received a Harry Potter wand, xBox Harry Potter Lego game & box set of Hogwarts texts. Peanut's loot included a hot wheels set. electronic battle ship game & moon in my room. Lil Bear was happy to find his requested helicopter under the tree along with a marble run & Imaginex city. Even Finley was visited by Puppy Paws and received new Juliska dog bowls (who knew the make puppy porcelain!?!) and a few toys.

Each of the littles took turns opening their wear, read & do gifts. They also pooled their money together and bought Dinsey Infinity as a group gift for each other.

Homemade gifts are still my absolute favorite and this handprint snowman family actually brought a tear to my eye....I will treasure it always!

We had fun playing with our new gifts before Christmas brunch with YiaYia and Bopi. 

Hubby took Belle and Peanut to Thea D & Theo J's house for Christmas dinner while I stayed home with a sick lil Bear and celebrated by watching White Christmas.

And just like that, another Christmas is in the books!
