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.

Yesterday Steve and I took the boys to see Santa!  I had looked up when Santa was coming back to Belvedere Square because last year they did this cute little area where there were free pictures in front of a giant Christmas tree and the pictures were printed out professionally by a photo store next door.   This year was the low-budget version.  They didn’t even put Santa in front of the tree!?!  And the pictures were printed on a canon home printer.

Santa was running a little late and it was chilly outside but we still managed a photo.  Anthony was a trooper.  He sat nicely on Santa’s lap.  Nathan took one look at Santa and started screaming.  Even when Steve was holding him he couldn’t stop staring at Santa in fear.  When we were waiting for the picture to be printed a nice gentleman came up and knocked on our driver side window and asked if we were planning on leaving our parking spot.  I kindly told him we were going to be leaving but not for another 10 minutes.  When I watched him walk away I saw him stick his hand behind his back and flip us off.  Eeek.  I think that guys is getting coal for Christmas!  And to think he did it in front of Santa and all those kiddos.

There was a kind lady there though that took pictures of us with her iPhone and emailed them to me. … there is kindness in the world. I think get picture turned out better than the one from Belvedere.
