Pictures can be hard to come by when there is so much going on! Jen got some great ones but I can't figure out how to get them from the shutterfly site to the blog, so I have limited pictures to share. We had such a great day- probably the best Christmas we have had with the kids! They are all old enough to 'get' it, and they had so much fun. All of our family was there, the tree and decorations were beautiful, the food was great, and we really could not have asked for anything more.
The kids were ridiculously cute. Mairead and Lily had matching dresses, and the boys were in ties and vests to match.
My mom gave Lily this Elefun game and the kids had a blast catching butterflies in their nets.
Unfortunately, Nana had to miss the day because she was still recuperating from Legionnaire's disease. We did get the kids dressed up and over to visit her so that she could give them their gifts. She did some wonderful oil paintings for the kids, but they really just wanted to press the buttons to make her bed go up and down.
There is a long story behind this... don't ask...
