Christmas Weekend 2011

So Christmas is already over... sad. :(
But I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas this year!
I know we did!
Our Christmas weekend started off with a little boyfriend action going on with the girls...
On Friday, Lidia went to a movie with her boyfriend, Ramsey.... supervised of course... but shoot.me.now.
These two are besties and by the end of the movie, they were break dancing at the front of the theatre.
Yep.
Then Friday night, we watched Carly's boyfriend, Collin.
She's totally in love with him...


Then Saturday we went to Christmas Eve service at church,
and back to my moms house to stay the night.
I tried to get pictures of the girls in their matching Christmas Eve outfits but that didnt work out too well.
Then we opened one present,
played CandyLand, made cookies, set the cookies out for Santa, ate Santas cookies (ahem LIDIA!)
and Lidia got to fall asleep with Grandma and Grandpa.

Christmas Day, we woke up at 6AM, thanks to my psycho sisters and opened presents!
The first present that was "opened" was my step-dads big present for the year...
We "wrapped" the door to my parents laundry room and made him "open" it.
Inside was ....
a new recliner from all of us!
He was ecstatic!

Then the rest of the day was full of opening presents of course,
eating a big breakfast (tradition)
playing games,
laying around,
taking naps,
eating Subway sandwiches (another tradition)
playing with more games/new toys,
and just relaxing.
The girls had a GREAT Christmas!
Their presents included:
-a 3 tent with 2 tunnels connected and a ball pit activity center
-a tea set, dress up clothes, flashcards
- 2 baby dolls, bitty baby, bitty baby outfit
-Rapunel doll with matching outfit for Lidia
-a Zoo activity center with animals
-movies, clothes, socks, colors, stuffed animals, chapstick, jump-ropes, hair stuff, etc.
-Dual DVD headrests for the car
-keyboard/piano
-talking picnic basket
-talking magnectic ABCs for the refridgerator
-magnadoodle or whatever those things are called!
... and more, Im sure.

But it was ridiculous the amount of stuff the girls got this year...
Our playroom literally looks like a daycare center.
Anyone wanna come play with all our new stuff??? Anyone?!

Anyway, after relaxing, napping, and playing most of the day,
we went over to Matt's parents for dinner.
And we loved on our babies a little more....

Then.
Dun Dun Dun.
Mama and Papa...
went to the casino!
I know, for shame! It was Christmas!
But its our new tradition with another couple to go each year on Christmas night.
oh,
and I won 160 bucks,
so I say it was worth it right?!

Again, I hope everyone enjoyed the Holiday with their families and loved ones!
