The next morning... Santa arrived (a day early, no less)!
After opening presents, the boys go on a treasure hunt through some Disney books to find out that we're going on a trip to Florida in February.
Christmas with The Gallogly's
Our tradition is to spend Christmas Eve (at my grandmother's house on Lake George, Indiana) with my dad's side of the family. I come from a large family - my dad has four brothers and sisters and my mom has six. This means lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins. I've always felt fortunate for this and the fact that both sides of the family still get together during major holidays. At the Lake celebration, Nicklas played Santa.
Christmas with my mom
After presents, we managed to get the kids to settle down long enough for dinner. They actually sat and ate. It was a Festivas miracle!
And finally, the last shot of Christmas. While I was out Christmas shopping, I saw these sweaters at Old Navy and HAD to buy them for the boys. They didn't love wearing them, especially twice in three days but I didn't care - they were so darn cute! Don't you agree???
