Christmas Kind of Day...

There was a little trip to see Santa (next post)... a crazy lunch where the kids outnumbered the adults -- score one for the kids. Then some gingerbread houses needed decorating, followed up by a gift exchange between the kids -- Maeve was able to give her homemade gifts to Avery and Bennett. It was, all and all, a super fun day and less chaotic than I expected (make no mistake... there was still plenty of chaos). I made the critical error of allowing the missed nap to happen between 5pm-7pm. Guess who was rocking their child to sleep at 10:15pm just to help sleep come back? Oh well.... I enjoyed 5pm-7pm. Ha.

All dressed up for Santa...


Look Mom... Elves!!


Ready... Set... Decorate! (or eat!)


A rare gummy drop (or vitamin per Maeve) that actually made it on the house and not in her mouth...


Creativity abounds...


Back for a second round of pilfering...


Maeve dancing for Clara...


We are so thankful for the friends in our lives...
