a quick Christmas recap!

Can you believe Christmas has come and gone... why does the best day of the year always go by so quickly!?

Christmas isn't Christmas without food...
We decided to go out for breakfast on Christmas Eve because the kids were asking for pancakes, and neither of us felt like making them! Ha!

Memphis had a good time with his chocolate milk...

...and I had french toast, home fries & sausage... YUMMO!

.When we got home, my mom had dropped off some yummy treats!
{I do ZERO baking during the holidays... mostly because I can't bake AND because I don't have a lot of freezer space AND none of the treats would last very long around the hubs or Ruby! haha}

The kids were excited to open the gifts they picked out for each other... so I was able to get them to stand still for about 3 seconds to take a photo of them in front of the tree on Christmas Eve...

Ruby got Memphis a toy helicopter and he got her a blue Pprincess dress...just like Cinderella!
They were very happy!!

After they went to bed, the tree looked like this...

And after all was said & done, it looked like this!

The kids got a ton of stuff, and they were excited about EVERYTHING... which is soooo nice.
It'll be harder as they get older and start asking for more expensive things... it's nice to be able to pick up a ton of "cheap" gifts now that I know they'll enjoy & appreciate!  Christmas morning rocks!
{and yes, I actually DID have to have to wake them up again this year! haha}

and a little something for Moi....

{also, the hubs and I got new phones so that was part of our gifts to each other too... all the photos were taken with my phone! LOVE it!}

We headed to my parents place in the afternoon for more gifts, good company AND great food!

We attempted a family photo... my sister took it and she was too lazy to stand up (haha!), so our head are cut off and I look HUGE... oh well!  

and one of us with our goddaughter, Piper!

Christmas truly is about FAMILY and I am so thankful for mine.
We had a beautiful day!

Now, if only I could find a spot for all their new stuff... today is going to be a day or organization & cleaning!

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
Can't wait to catch up on everyone's blogs to see how your days were!!
