You guessed it!
We spent our first Christmas together as JUST a family in...

It was filled with swimming, shell collecting, sand castle building, and (admittedly) a little bit of shivering. Just a little, though. You still need to be jealous that we were at the beach in December.
See our awesome get-up? Nothing like "making do".
We acted out the Christmas story (as well as we could with the little ones) and then built a tent and sipped hot cocoa and munched on cookies while watching "A Christmas Story". By the way, not the cleanest movie ever for little kids!

Christmas morning we woke the kids up (miracle, huh?) and served them Santa pancakes.

Then, check out the mouth gaping!!

Then we came home and did it all again a few days later. Sometimes the excitement needs to be divided up!

We had an awesome Christmas--thanks to all who thought of us--especially mom and dad for letting us go to the condo!

Looks fun! Nothing beats the excitement of kids on Christmas morning. We rented A Christmas Story, too, but luckily Dave and I watched it first. We returned it as soon as we were done (I fell asleep, however). :)
