~Home for the Holidays~

So we didn't wake up to a white Christmas, but we did enjoy flurries throughout the day and it was as eventful and abundant as any holiday you could wish for.
Christmas Eve was spent with Nonnie's family and, as always, consisted of a food table the size of a football field and an itinerary full of events.

A puppet show about Jesus was performed and carols were sang.

Gabe was determined to get to those puppets!

{Me and Gabe}

Our 7th Christmas together.

Santa visited.

Bella was promised a pony. She said she just really wanted a DS. Kids these days:)

We keep waiting for the year our names will be left off, but here's my brother at 20 years old.

And here's me...holding strong at almost 25. The look on Nonnie's face is the only reason I haven't swiped my name out of the bag beforehand. Tis the Season!

Bingo for prizes was played.

Then Bingo for the $100 jackpot.

Intense. And disappointing:(

The kids played in the funhouse.

Including the biggest kid of them all...

Then, we enjoyed our first Christmas morning in our own house.

The dogs watched for their present to ride in on the train.

And loved their Christmas bones and toys!

Sean's parents came over bearing gifts and opened theirs.

Christmas Day was spent with the Marconi's at Nonnie's.

Now, purely for your viewing pleasure, I'll include a selection of action photos from the family's time playing the Kinect...coolest thing ever.

We had a blast laughing and visiting all day, and finally retreated home at almost 11pm.

And lastly, New Year's Eve was spent with just a few close friends for a fun, relaxed night

From us to you!
