|A new tradition: the Christmas Eve gift;|
this year it was a Playmobil nativity set that we just now (in February) put away.
|Dave and the boys stumbled upon this pretty symmetrical gem of a tree|
at Volante Farms even though they were about two weeks late to the tree-shopping party--score!
|Holy stockings, Batman!|
|The Christmas morning tumble in front of the tree|
|A moment of silence as they all inhaled their chocolate...|
|Will's FAVORITE present of Christmas, his "Pound Puppies"|
scarf from Santa
|Finn asked for a snowboard and a sled;|
Santa must've known he'd never been snowboarding before and got him a snowboard-sled combo to tide him over!
|Bridgie's present from Santa was a giant teddy she now calls "the big hungry bear"|
(after the book with the same name). She sleeps with it (under it?) every night.
|One of the best parts of Christmas with three basically coherent kids:|
watching them watch each other open presents.
(These are figurines sold specifically to hook up to the video game but
as the boys aren't old enough for video games quite yet, they received them as action figures.)
|Perhaps the most enjoyable present of the season was this playtunnel I purchased|
for Bridget at the last minute.
|A Husky for our half-Northeastern legacy kid|
|The Comenzos gave this headband and tutu set to Bridget when she was born.|
They finally fit!
|Bridget got a new comb and brush set to keep those tangles in check.|
|Nan and Mamp arrived with a very cool addition to Bridget's new big girl bedroom|
|Here's Rachel, Matt, Bella and Joe|
|I'm posting a lot of pictures of Bridget, but she is just so smiley it's hard to resist.|
|Cousins! In matching PJs!|
