We had a very low key Christmas this year, which was such a blessing! Just Patrick's parents and Aunt Lucy, my parents, Patrick, I and the kids. Patrick's mom and Auntie Lucy did all of the cooking and it was absolutely delicious...shredded pork tacos and homemade tamales. We opened most of the gifts Christmas Eve since Patrick had to work Christmas day. On Christmas the kids woke to stockings and their Santa gifts. The boys and I stayed in our jammies all day and the kiddos had a Wii fest. Although we missed Patrick it was so nice to just stay home and let the kids enjoy their new toys.
The camel ride
Ev loved the s'mores
No we may not get a rat as a pet!
Over our Christmas break, my mom and I took the kids to Wild Lights at the Living Desert. The kids had so much fun riding a camel, making s'mores by the fire, playing on the hay stack and looking at all of the beautiful lights. It was a cold night which added to the festive feel of the evening.
