Christmas Recap: Part 1

To help with the picture overload, I'm going to break up all our Christmas celebrations into a couple of posts. 

A few days before Christmas we loaded the boys in the car, cranked up the Christmas music, and  checked out our favorite festive houses. I can barely manage to get a wreath up on the door, how do people do this?

On Christmas Eve Eve we decorated cookies without Jack (he's still a little too young) and it was so special to spend that time with just Ben. Although the dough was Pillsbury, the frosting designs were all ours.

We also decorated a gingerbread train. J is usually in charge of the construction and then Ben decorates and eats half the candy.

Christmas Eve day we went over to J's parent's house to celebrate with his mom's side of the family. 

That night we headed a few miles down the road to J's aunt's house where we celebrated with all his cousins, their kids, and J's grandma.

 By the end of the night Jack was so tired he climbed into this box and tried to lay down. Opening gifts isn't for the weak.

Both boys passed out in the car shortly after we got on the road which meant I had to set out the milk and cookies for Santa by myself. Does that make me crazy? I didn't want Ben to wake up and notice it wasn't out. 

Christmas Day recap coming tomorrow!
