{recap}

We had a really exciting, overloaded and rather exhausting {but in a good way} holiday weekend.

This Christmas felt like it was truly the boys' first Christmas, because they are old enough to fully participate and experience the excitement and anticipation of everything. Dan and I had so much fun buying their gifts this year and seeing the twinkle in their eyes and their huge smiles as they unwrapped everything.

On Christmas Eve we put the boys in their new PJ's, read The Night Before Christmas and set cookies and milk out for Santa. I was able to quickly snag a few shots of them all ready for bed {they were just a tad excited}...

Earlier that day we did Christmas with my parents and the boys got some fun new toys including super cool light saber things...

And a tool bench...

You better believe I'll be putting them to work with those tools! ;)

On Christmas morning the boys went straight to work on their stocking and gifts...

They got lots of new cars...

And a Toy Story Train...

And other equally fun goodies.

Landon snuck in a little track time...

Then we all got dressed to head over to their Gigi's house to celebrate again!

More gift opening of course occurred...

And we all enjoyed some yummy food and cookies...

and Gigi enjoyed some cuddle time with three of her favorite boys...

Make that four :)

Yes! Got him to smile!

You are probably wondering if the adults got any presents.

Why yes, yes we did.

Are there any photos of said presents? Not really. At least not of us opening them. Once you are a parent you are rarely seen in photos again. Hence the lack of a family portrait from the day {added to the fact that Dan just loooves having his photo taken.}

I did take photos of two fun gifts I received...one from Dan that involves lots of sugar...

photo

And one from my parents that will hopefully get lots of use soon...

And I am wearing the sweater that Mom #2 gave me today and I really love it. It is from the Vera Wang line at Kohl's and has pretty ruffles down the front...

Sooo...if you are still with me, that was our Christmas weekend in a nutshell. A really big one. :)

Of course on Monday I had to get a case of the fun stomach bug that is going around. I'm still feeling yucky today, but hoping I'll be back to 100% very soon...or at least for Friday so Dan and I can celebrate the New Year with a nice meal.

How was your holiday? I would love to hear about it!
