Christmas, 2015

Okie dokie! Our Christmas wasn’t very eventful but I got great pictures, so I figured those are worth a post.

We woke up with Cecito and had to wait for LL about 20 minutes. She’s started sleeping later these days, and by later I mean 7am. We opened gifts and got a little surprise. Cecito was really into it, unlike his big sis at this age. My best memory of the day was that they would share opening gifts! We would take turns with each of us and they were more patient than I expected. It was especially adorable that when I pulled out a gift for them to open they plopped in my lap and then opened it, together. Super cute and very fun!

The rest of the morning was spent on the phone with family. Later that day we explored out the door to have dinner at a friend’s house and that was it! We had a great time with our little family and some good friends. Christmas was a success!

Opening their first gifts. He would take a little piece off at a time and hand it to us to put in the trash. Those first ones took a LONG time.

Cecito loved his Three Little Birds book, too! We now listen to Bob Marley for the "Gonna Be Alright" song all the time. Thanks Bi-Nana!

We had to put on the fairy princess skirt - right away! Notice the belly button? We have to unzip the "jammas" so she can get to her belly button, or else it's ALL OVER folks!

New jammies! They wear them every night and will until they don't fit anymore. Which is almost upon us. They are growing at a faster pace these days.
