Family Day...


HO, HO, HO...

...Merry Christmas!!!

Jackson preferred to eat that candy rather than help us decorate. At first my control-freak-self was completely irritated but I got over myself and he enjoyed himself! :)

Isn't it fun to sit on the table????

See, still eating!!!! I just love this boy!

Sweet brothers! Most of the time...

The finished product! Pretty good, huh? :)

Saturday we had a nice relaxing day as a family. It was our first "free" Saturday in December - you know how that goes! So, we slept in, played, made our "first" Gingerbread House as a family, baked some goodies, and drove around and looked at Christmas lights. It was the perfect day. Harrison made a Santa beard so he and Jackson took turns modeling it for us! It was a fun, fun, fun, day! I LOVE family days! :)

Great job on the Gingerbread house! It's a tradition at my folks' house to have a "friendly" competition between my brother and I (and now our significant others) to see who can make the best. I'm always looking for new ideas - thanks for the pictures! Looks like you guys had very fun family day!! Merry Christmas guys!

It love that Harrison is in his underpants! I think panties are Bianca's uniform these days. I can't wait until my girls are old enough to make gingerbread houses and help mommy bake. Sounds like a great day.

Wow the gingerbread house looks awesome! I have never done a gingerbread house...we need to get on the ball huh??? And I love the pixs of the boys with the Santa beard...they are getting so big...We miss y'all so much and Ella Rose misses her cousins too. And so glad y'all had a down day just chilling out or as Daddy would say "Cooling". Love ya -V

What's even more fun than sitting on the table is sitting on the table in your underwear! :) I love your "control-freak self" comment. That totally would've been me too!

What a great day. The Gingerbread house looks great. I may have to tackle that next year!

Bridgette said...

HA! I also love the "control freak self"...you must have grown into that role after college! (I think being a mom does that to you!) H looks quite comfy too! Cracking me up with the underwear, did you think he was going to get too messy so you decided to take all of his clothes off?? Heehee.

I Love it! The pictures, the crafts, the lights, the sleeping in, the goodies...The having a FUN Family Day...Even the letting go of what YOU call a perfect day for a free spirit like Jackson to put his own twist on the moment. GOOD JOB! You're the best mommy the boys could ever dream of!!!!!!!!!
Happy Christmas Eve Day To YOU!
Love, MOM
