Christmas dinner

Our last stop for the festive day was my Moms for dinner. 
Her dog Brownie all dressed up, bu not too happy about it.

Aaron and his mini pillow pet.
Ty LOVES his new alarm clock.

Bill got his new favorite movie.

Khris got some new additions to his wardrobe.

My grandma and Grandpa

We decided to try to get a family portrait...

It took a few takes...

Not the best, but at least we are all looking...
So another Holiday whirlwind is behind us and it was great.  Next year will be here before we know it and maybe, just maybe, I'll be ready ahead of the rush.

Aaron LOVED getting this Pyramid.

Khris got a new coat

Christmas Morning

Before I get to the Christmas morning Chaos, I have to give a quick little goodbye to our Elf on the Shelf.
We, and especially I, will miss him sooo much!  He has really kept our little guys in line this holiday season and whoever created him is a genius.  Just sayin'. 
Criddle, our elf keeping a watchful eye on the Grosser Zoo.
Ty wanted to make sure he was well cared for at the North Pole.

Aaron wanted to make sure Santa knew exactly what we left him for a snack.
Ty woke up first and was trying to get a sneak peek.

Always a bummer when we have to wake him up, the boy LOVES his sleep!

On our way downstairs...

I was so happy to see that before the boys even looked at their own gifts, they hurried to the gifts they got for each other.  They were so excited to GIVE it made my heart happy.

Ty giving Aaron his gift.

Ty gave Daddy a screw driver.  He was so proud of that!

Ginger loved her gift too.

Jeremy got 2 1/2 pound Reeses cups from the boys to.  mmm...

RC helicopter was a fave for sure...for all three boys!
We had a great morning, but as soon as it was over, it was time to prepare for the next round.  The Grizwolds, AKA my family, was on there way for brunch! :)

Grosser Dinner

Christmas eve this year was with the Grosser crew. My Mom-In-Law was sick so with 24 hours notice, I threw together a feast for the family. I turned out great and we all enjoyed ourselves. We did miss Diana though!
Carl spent the whole time trying to capture every picture he could so Diana could enjoy the day via pictures.

I spent a good portion of the evening at the stove.

Barbara also tried to capture the evening on film.

Margarete helped keep the kiddos occupied.

Ty kept his eye on the presents.

Once little miss Hayden arrived, the boys were on a mission to keep her smiling!

They did really good too!

They played in the toy room.

Opened Presents

Aaron actually screamed like a little girl when he got this one.

Ty loved his new scooter and helmet

Dustin and his new golf bag.
