Home for Christmas, Part 1

We spent Christmas morning on vacation a few years ago, and the kids were NOT fans, so now we try to make sure we wake up at home every Christmas morning.  Unfortunately, this usually means staying up most of the night before Christmas putting things together.  We also discovered this year that Corinne has a pretty severe allergy to the Christmas tree, and it was giving her lots of asthma and allergy issues, so behold, our last real Christmas tree ever...sigh...
Last year with a real tree but the FIRST year that I sprang for matching Christmas jammies for the parents!  If these last as long as my last pair of Christmas jammies, we will get more than our money's worth...
The girls went shopping with Mawmaw again this year to choose gifts for the family, but we learned from past mistakes and this year they went with a budget!




Mawmaw's favorite gifts usually involve pictures of the kids...


Watts wanted to learn to sew so Stella bought a kit for him at the book fair...




Stella was shocked by her stand mixer...

Watts wanted nunchucks and Corinne and the Dollar Tree delivered...


It is so nice to see them taking a break from arguing to share some Christmas love...





Cille LOVED her new dress from Mawmaw...obviously...



Corinne's enthusiasm is contagious...
These photos are all mixed up somehow, so here we are again posing in the front of the tree...



If someone gives you a sleeping bag, you need to try it out immediately...
More Christmas morning fun to come!
