Christmas? Do you still want to hear about Christmas?

A few months ago a lot of my friends celebrated a holiday called Christmas. We decided to join in on the festivities.

The week before Christmas our friend Maria let us invite ourselves to join her cookie baking extravaganza. Here is Tessa (who actually smiled after about 15 non-smiling shots) hard at work sifting flour and powdered sugar.

And her feet...

(As a side note - while preparing this post I got to feeling very excited for Christmas, only 9 more months. I also feel very embarrassed that I am posting about this in March - get it together Emily.)

Behold - The Christmas Tree

Christmas Morning

7:30 am

8:15 am - Discovering Meg's short attention span and playing with Santa toys.

9:00am (after breakfast)

11:00am (after Meg's first nap)

1:45 pm (after Meg's second nap) - looking for creative ways to open MORE presents.

Finally we finished opening most of the presents at 3:00pm.
(Tessa still had two gifts that, by that time, she refused to open so we put away for her Birthday.)

Thanks for hanging in there with me on this slow posting...

Can I just say that your Christmas tree was glorious!? Very nice. I can't believe you stretched out opening presents until 3 p.m. You have way more will power than I have.

I think we took about the same number of naps that Meg did that day! :) I agree he tree was beautiful!

P.S. MY WORD VERIFICATION is the word: mangr. How appropriate!
