Christmas Day 2015
For Christmas, my sister decided to fly in for the weekend since my Mom and Dad were in Australia with my other sister Jill to celebrate her graduating from dental school. Christmas crept up on up pretty quickly! The children – as always – got plenty of gifts.
Jeff, Susan and i prepped the christmas gifts the night before. Here is the tree on Christmas Eve. It is so exciting as a parent to get ready for the big day!
On Christmas mornin, Vinny came into our room and i am not sure he remembered it was Christmas because he didn’t ask about presents or go look at the tree or anything. He just hung out with us and took silly selfies:
Melanie got Frozen Dolls, a unicorn rocking horse, and a new dollhouse, and a Hello Kitty car.
Vincent got a new bike (!), a remote control car, train tracks/tunnel, and a paw patrol scooter.
My sister Jill bought them an Easel which they played with for a while. Of course they fought over the dry-eraser since it only came with one.
I got Jeff (and the family) a new portrait to remember Butter’s by — set right above the computer.
Pop-pop and Oma came by to check out the festivities too!
Later in the day we went to the in-laws to open more presents and eat lunch. Melanie knew all about opening presents by then!
Vincent is obsessed with marble ball!
Aunty Susan bought Vinny a motorized Paw Patrol scooter, and Melanie a motorized Hello Kitty car. She is pretty good at getting the “Aunty” gifts.
Earlier in the week, Vinny went home sick with the flu. Then Melanie came down with it… Luckily i was home from work by then so could watch the kids. We were wiping Melanie’s nose all day long.
And of course you know what that means… Later on Christmas night i ended up getting super sick with the flu, which put me out a couple of days. Luckily my sister was here to help watch the kids. (Though she accidentally drank my water and got sick too, but after she returned to Hawaii.)I didn’t have my flu shot but the kids did, so i think they didnt get it TOO bad. Jeff was lucky and escaped the sickness …. as he somehow normally does!
