Merry Merry!

Minnie loved her first Christmas. I mean, she had no idea what was going on, but she loves us, and we were all together all the time, so she had so much fun! Except we woke up too early. She is a 8:45-9:00 am baby, and we were assembled in the living room by 7.

Here she is modeling a hat from my college friend Jamie, who was my secret Santa and knitted head-ware for me, Dorothy, and Minnie. Check out her amazing knits here.
Cooper made chocolate covered strawberries for Christmas Eve dessert, which was adorable.
Speaking of adorable! Minnie in Dorothy's old dress:
Dorothy's face OMG
Sibling gift exchange SUCCESS!
Baby in the candy-- that Harry made
Real talk: we did not love staying home by ourselves on Christmas Eve. We really missed seeing Ben's extended family at his grandma's, and it was kind of a bummer. Doing sibling gifts, opening gifts fro  my brother, making a big fancy dinner-- all helped.

Christmas day was lovely, the way Christmas Day with little kids always is.

Screen time limits? What screen time limits?
It was a techy year.
So much of this.
Harry got many sportsball shirts.
They are so sweet to each other.
Jack makes the best present face
Oh good. A microphone.
I bought this because our kids don't know any nurseey rhymes. Oops. Good thing there's a baby.
A baby who did not know why she had to be up so early.
Bowling shoes!
Minnie loved this doll.
I love the way they watched each other.

This killed me--a teeny tiny version of the catalog that started my addiction.
The doll that got away:
Here I am wearing all of my presents at once
(she actually does not like this car-- the only miss of the season)
Have you ever seen someone gunk up an flute like this?? Kids are gross.
These lovely platinum diamond hoops were IN MY STOCKING, which is how I knew this would be a great day. (Also that baby whose little dimpled hand you see-- she makes every day wonderful, earrings or not).
