Every year, Paul and I have the same old conversation: do we open gifts on Christmas Eve as was my family's tradition or on Christmas morning as was his family's tradition. This year, we compromised and spent Christmas Eve at Mom and Dad's house, had finger foods and opened gifts we got for each other. Then, on Christmas morning, we opened our own family gifts and those from Grandma and Grandad (and Santa), and Paul and I did a nice big Christmas dinner later on for the rest of the family. I think it worked out rather nice- we got to spend time with the whole family and also some quality time with just the five of us. I think this is the model that we will keep. So, the kiddies looked darling and Christmasy and I wanted to take some nice photos... yeah well, judge for yourself... I love how I caught this just as Lily was about to crash land... ...just slightly worse than last year's attempt I think. Can you believe how much they've all grown in a year? You would expect it from the twins, but just look at Abby! Christmas morning, they were all wearing gingerbread man themed jammies, but we banned the camera in favor of making some nice family memories. I hope everyone had a very happy holiday this year.
