Being that I only have 2 days off of work for Christmas this year, we aren't going to be able to do our normal multi-day tour de Texas to visit mine and Brian's families. We are going to make a quick 24-hour roundtrip to Austin, but won't get to be with Brian's family at the ranch in La Grange. So with that in mind, we decided to celebrate Christmas with them a little early this past weekend since everyone would already be together for his sister's birthday (happy belated 25th, Shannon!).
Everyone spent the night at our house on Saturday night and on Sunday morning we pretended it was Christmas day. I could get used to this whole having more than one Christmas morning thing!
The babies were, of course, the center of attention, and while we had every intention of taking a family pic of all of us, we only ended up with pictures of them… oops.
I snagged these cute matching Santa jammies from Target for $6/piece- they made for some cute pictures!
All set to open their first presents from Aunt Shannon
And by "open," clearly I meant "eat"
Family pic in our pjs- I think Colby and Clara pull off the early morning no-shower look a little better than Brian and I do...
All that present-opening is pretty tiring
See what I mean?
I asked Brian to snap these pics while they were both in the jumperoos- I just love these little Santa feet!
Hard to get a still pic of Clara's feet given that she is constantly bouncing up and down, but he managed!
Aunt Shannon and Brian's parents (recently named "Mimi" and "Granddaddy") were very thoughtful and generous in their gift-giving as always and made sure to stock the babies up with more toys, books, and clothes than they know what to do with- these babies are spoiled (as are we), that's for sure!
And in the spirit of Christmas, Colby, Clara, Davis, and Avery got together and made a video for you all to enjoy:
