Christmas And Beyond

Santa came and it was as exciting as ever. Three babies this year and it was Caleb’s first Christmas. Caleb had no idea what was going on but he rolled with it like the big kids. It was cute but Bill and I were halfway delirious. So. So early. Who can blame them?? Christmas morning is the most exciting morning of the year, after all!!

Caleb spent the rest of the day getting acquainted with his toys.

The kids dove right into a Wacky Science kit which I thought was the messiest toy we purchased….

Until we started up with the Easy Bake Oven. Then I realized I was dead wrong. My kitchen hates me right now.

We spent the day with Bill’s parents and the kids had fun playing with their new toys.

Meanwhile – Christmas won. Caleb slept in my arms for HOURS. He was exhausted. We had him up pretty late on Christmas Eve partying hard. As soon as it quieted down, his body pretty much collapsed. I just held on tight and stole kisses whenever I could.
