Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was so special this year. Not only was it my girl's First Christmas, but it snowed, too! ALOT! Landon had a blast rolling around and playing football in it with Daddy. We spent the entire afternoon and evening over at Sabrina and Amedeo's house (the in-laws). We ate lots of great food, opened tons of gifts, visited with friends and family, enjoyed watching the snowfall, and even got a surprise visit from Santa! I will always remember this White Christmas.

This is one of MANY attempts at a family picture. The 2 that I posted on here are the only two that were worth saving. I can't get anything out of Landon lately besides this little scrunchy grin he keeps doing. Oh well...he's still precious :) Getting 3 young children to look at the camera at the same time is pretty much impossible. I don't even try for smiles these days...just all 3 looking in the right direction. Did it happen? Not so much...

Another attempt...I think Landon had just run off across the room at this point. I had to bribe him with Christmas treats to get him to sit back down. He gave the camera this little innocent look.

Great Grandma Anda and Allie...She speaks to the babies in Italian and they LOVE it :)

Sweet Boy

Emily, cousin Olivia, and Allie...Again, getting 3 babies to look in the same direction...impossible.

Sweet Sisters

I wanted to get a pic of Landon in the snow before it melted...little did I know, there was MUCH more snow to come!

Landon pelted Grandpa with a snowball!

Oops...I cut Grandma's head off!

Presents! and Bows!

Grandma and Grandpa got Landon a new tool bench!

Santa and his elves came by bearing gifts!

He LOVES Santa this year.


Rolling all around in it :)

Mommies big gloves.

I think he was frozen by this point...right after this, we went in for a nice hot bath :)

Leaving food for the reindeer on the snowy bushes.

Love the jammies tucked into the boots :)

December Fun

We've been staying very busy this month! And as usual, I'm behind with my blogging! All of these pics are from last weekend...Enjoy :)

We went to ICE at The Gaylord Texan with Grandma Sabrina, Gigi, Uncle Shaun, and Aunt Stephanie. Landon had a great time! was freezing in there!

Landon's cousin Olivia turned 1-year-old last weekend! Her party was held at The Mansfield Activities Center and the theme was The Very Hungry Catepillar. Aunt Jess and Uncle Beau went all out and the party was a huge success. The kiddos had a blast!

Our friends, Derek and Andrea had a Tacky Christmas Sweater Party last weekend, too. The outfits were wonderfully hideous :) Chris won 1st place for his beautiful turtleneck & vest.
