Our Christmas.

It felt a little as if our Five Family was the most over-scheduled it has ever been, over the last five weeks.  As a result, around mid-night on December 23rd I declared "Enough.  I'm exhausted and stressed.  We have yet to just really relax and enjoy our children..."
We hunkered down and spent a few extra hours more than usual, just being in our home.
First a little Christmas Eve cookie decorating.

The girls were gifted (not by us!) a make-up set from one of our many Christmas parties.  Coco took it upon herself to model every shade of eye shadow... Looks like she needs another lesson on 'Less is More'.  Unless maybe she's nervous about being mistaken for a boy, like her mother.

Matching Christmas jammies.

 It was a Frozen Christmas from their parents.  Unfortunately, the Elsa dolls sold out before I got to the mall.. Maybe that's why people start shopping before December 17th.

 Coco's Santa present:  She asked for this Pony doll.. over and over and over and over... And over.

The Kid had an electronic Christmas. Booooooring.
And Tink receive her HUGE bag filled with ten pairs of jammies.  Have you ever seen a child so excited and in love with pajamas?
Though admittedly, ten pairs of pajamas costs WAY more than one may realize....

The best part of our Christmas morning:
we gathered around the tree and listened to Tink play Jingle Bells and We Wish You a Merry Christmas.  As a non-music player, it is amazing to see her tiny fingers dance over the keys.

I hope everyone in blog world felt as lucky as we did.
