Merry Christmas Eve

We are spending Christmas with Andrew's family this year. Andrew's uncle, aunt and cousins joined us from Florida as well. So, there are 14 of us here this Christmas Eve. As you can see we've been enjoying this white Christmas. (Except for the part when Andrew sliced his finger open while helping to make this igloo. It was bloody. But, he is ok now. And we didn't have to make any trips to the emergency room. So, all is well that ends well.)

Madeline has enjoyed a lot of time out in the snow today. She got to go sledding on a real sled for the first time.

Oliver is enjoying his first Christmas by mostly sleeping. But, he is enjoying a little awake time.

He sure does love his daddy!

We had a scrumptious dinner that Andrew's mom prepared.

And then the rest of the evening was filled with smiles...

...conversation among brothers...

...dessert eating...

...bridge building...

...Halo playing...


...cousin snuggling...

...and a little hide...

...and seek playing.

I had to get in this post somehow. So here is my self portrait. Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

I am sorry about Andrew's injury! It looks like you are having a great Christmas celebration. We can't wait to see you when you get back. :-)
