As we were trying to dress the babies, we thought they were so cute as they kept trying to nakedly escape. Just 19 months ago we were all pregnant with these toddlers.
And then we tried to take a cousins picture. One cousin was having a tired, emotional breakdown. The others headed that way as we tried to get them all to smile.
Note -- Andrew wanted to "hold a baby, too," so he grabbed 2 year old cousin Aaron around the neck.
Note -- Benny acting like Spiderman on his jammies.
Note -- James and Kate trying to escape, Phin trapped at the back, Aaron slowly losing breath.
Note -- Max smiling through it all.
Legos are always a hit for presents.
Andrew got a Turtle backpack and walkie-talkies.
James got his own water bottle, and tried to claim Andrew's new water bottle as his own, too.
We looked outside then, to see snow! A white Christmas.
Jamesey liked it, until he took off his mittens.
I think it was his first time in snow. He was too young last winter.
We have had a peaceful, really nice holiday time. I have had several days off work, to play with the boys, spend time with JB, craft, bake, mend, sew, read, watch shows and sleep in. I should do this more often.
