Christmas Eve started off with a run in SHORTS...
yea, gotta love Texas weather around Christmas time, it felt like August :(
We hosted a Christmas brunch at our house for both sides of our family and since Daddy's schedule had him working Christmas Day...
Shhh, Santa arrived at our house on Christmas EVE morning!
You aren't seeing double, they both wanted these and sadly, I'm a little disappointed in them...pretty poorly made! But if you look closely you'll see Justin's new bike in the background,
he's happy to have a bigger bike like his brother! I bet these Green Machine's don't last long with these rough and tough boys...argh!
Boys opening gifts from MeMe, although their big gift from her is the
Disney Cruise to DisneyWorld in less than 30 days!
They loved the gifts from their PawPaw too (my dad). bb guns, bow and arrows from Bass Pro, walkie talkies, Wii hunting and fishing games, and blow up deer targets! SPOILED BOYS!
They opening WAY too many presents but all the dirt bike gear was by far his favorite...you should have seen his face light up! He was SO happy :) something so magical about Christmas through your children's eyes!
and then it was to DeDe's (Brandon's family) and he was BEYOND happy that the dirt bike gear is complete...see those racing boots! SO happy! He wanted to fire up the dirt bike at 10pm, just to try them out!
And Molly, she was happy playing in the wrapping paper
and trying to bite all of the new toys with excitement! We are taking her to Petco this week to make her a brand new Texans collar!
and our super cool neighbor that lives a few houses down gets into the holiday spirit like NO OTHER! He has a generator attached to his golf cart playing Christmas music and covered in lights...he was dressed as the Grinch and went around our entire neighborhood taking pictures with all of the kids! HOW COOL IS HE??
...playing with his toys from Aunt Sheila and Uncle Paul! My aunt gave Brandon and I a gift card to our favorite restaurant Eddy V's! I was SO happy because it's beyond delicious and it's almost our anniversary (January 15th) so it'll make a perfect date night :) YUM !
Gran, the love of my life, and our boys :) LOVE this picture!
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year too! Hope your Christmas was filled with lots of love and laughter, wonderful time with family and that magical touch that makes this time of year so beautiful!
