After a wonderful Christmas, I'm finally coming up for air and getting some thing done! We had a perfect holiday with our family. Not without lots of driving and the expected three-year-old meltdown moments, but full of joy, wonder, and contentedness. Kids truly bring magic to the holidays and B was really able to participate like never before. We started the day with baking, and made some cookies for Santa. B couldn't wait to go to Grandma's house and see everyone, and she was so excited she barely napped. For the first time, we didn't stay the night at my mom's in Lacey on Christmas Eve--we drove down for Chirstmas Eve dinner on the 24th and came back for gift opening and dinner on the 25th. Here are some photos from the 24th.
Daddy with his angel.
Israel and Sam in his new Christmas sweatshirt!
B did a great job keeping an eye on the presents.
Mia loves her aunties! She's such a little smiley cherub.
Bianca's wearing a dress that my grandparents brought me from Mexico over 20 years ago--she found it and had to put it on. :)
Then it was back to Tacoma to await Santa Claus!
On another note, we realized that it was Steve's 10th Lundahl Christmas. Wow--are we really ten years older?
