Christmas 2016

Christmas 2016

Christmas this year was amazing.  The boys were so into all the presents.  In fact we actually got them WAY too many things.  The boys told me that it would take an entire year to unwrap everything. We had to almost yell at them to focus and finish unwrapping.  At one point I unwrapped a few of the boys things.  Anthony *might* have unwrapped a few of Nathan’s things.  The girls were also pretty into it.  They didn’t really understand how to unwrap the presents but they enjoyed ripping the paper.  It was so nice having Steve’s mom and dad around to help out with the kids.  Unfortunately Paty was not here though! She spent Christmas day with her cousin in New York City but we got to celebrate when she got home.

I had the boys write some letters to Santa.  Super cute. “I was 100 good”.

After some bribing I was able to get the boys to pose for some Christmas photos in some tangled Christmas lights.

Last night was Steve’s holiday party for the Carnegie Institute.  It was held at a local country club.  Steve and I got all dressed up and left the boys in the loving hands of Grandma and Grandpa DeLuca.  They came in for the weekend to give the boys their Christmas presents early.  *spoiled/lovedDudes* The party was so much fun.  Steve and I had a much needed escape from the norm and enjoyed a night of dancing.  We were even the first on the dance floor.

Before we headed out we got some pictures… check it out:

Steve’s grandparents sent the boys each a stuffed animal for Christmas.  There is a bear and a horse and they both have zippers for mouths and little areas to hide stuff.  I LOVED stuffed animals growing up and have a soft spot for everything fluffy.  Anthony apparently shares my love for stuffed animals because when he met the stuffed animals he screamed this giddy cute little scream.  Here’s what I captured by the time I got my camera:

Our First Christmas

Our First Christmas

This Christmas is Anthony and Nathan’s first Christmas as well as the first Christmas that Steve and I have had at our own home.  We are lucky that Grandma and Grandpa DeLuca and Uncle Paul are able to join us.  Steve and his brother Paul went out yesterday and picked out this beautiful tree:

The stockings are hung and chocolate covered potato chips were made yesterday… it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

Anthony is excited for Santa:

Nathan is playing the air guitar while Anthony sings Christmas carols.

Anthony and Nathan are hiding in their stockings to scare Santa when he comes down the chimney:

 

Can you guess which one has been naughty and which one has been nice?


Nathan is telling mommy and grandma what they can do with their cameras and how he feels about this photoshoot… check out that right hand.
