Merry Christmas from VA

Well let's begin on Christmas Eve... Lewis wanted to start a new tradition of building a gingerbread house on Christmas Eve with the kiddos but we thought about it so late that we almost didn't get a kit for it. One year I might get brave enough to bake one.

Lewis had to hold the roof on while the kids decorated!

The finished product!

This is Harry. Our family Christmas gift. The kids are in hog heaven and I am enjoying him too. He spent most of the night hiding in the tree. Hopefully he will get braver, and the girls will stop carrying him around :)

I wanted spanish food for Christmas Eve so I made tamales and taquitos and we really enjoyed the evening being lazy with each other.

Look Santa came!

Kids with their stockings and a few pics from opening presents. We had a lazy day in our new robes from Nana and Papa and really enjoyed a traditional supper of ham and potatoes, green bean casserole and then yummy "holiday cheese cake".
