We had our annual gathering with the M family to watch Christmas Vacation. Not my favorite movie, but since it’s with some of my favorite people, it’s tolerable.
Obviously, we sent the kids to bed before the movie started. But not without letting them have a little Christmas cheer of their own – taking turns playing Christmas Angry Birds.
We took the kids to Zoolight Safari. Not that you can tell by looking at us, but it was actually a rather mild night – perfect for walking out of doors.
What can I say – we’re from Alabama. We’re accustomed to keeping our warmth.
Ali and Noah were mesmerized…
although I didn’t get any shots of Noah’s reactions, seeing as I was trying to help him keep his warmth…on the surprisingly mild night.
Noah was fairly thrilled with the whole holiday concept.
And yes, he was without clothes for a majority of our holiday celebrations…
Because Chris was awfully proud of those Santa diapers.
On Christmas day, we tried to keep him interested in opening his own presents,
But he was drawn away by the enticement of hot chicks.
And the cabinet doors.
And his appetite.
The biggest hit for both kids were the stockings.
Seriously. I have like a hundred thousand more stocking pictures just like those. That entertainment could have lasted All. Day. Long.
But most of all, Noah enjoyed being with his people.
He might have a bit of post-holiday-stress-syndrome now that it’s all over…it’s too quiet around here.
