Christmas 2016 Recap: Part 2

It was Christmas Eve!

Christmas Eve game

Why are the older boys in Seahawks gear?  Because there was a game on.  It wasn’t a good game.  The Seahawks lost.  (The offensive line has MAJOR issues.)

But we enjoyed pizza and a couple of touchdowns at Grandma and Gichan’s house before coming home to prep for Santa!  And the first item on the agenda was… new pajamas for everyone!

New pjs!

You can’t see Ane’s because Thumper is in her lap, but she got a pair of Doctor Who lounge pants and a Doctor Who T-shirt.  I managed to find Tad a new pair of flannel button-up Batman pajamas (he outgrew his last set), and Rerun and Thumper both got Peanuts Christmas pjs (Rerun has multiple characters printed on flannel button-up pajamas, Thumper’s are fleece with Santa Snoopy).  Both Rerun and Thumper should be able to wear their pjs next Christmas, barring huge growth spurts.

Then we let the kids open cousin Lolo’s box.  She themes the gifts, and this year each kid got an art set.  And this was a big moment, because Thumper finally discovered that he could unwrap presents on his own!


Until he got a piece of Scotch tape stuck to his fingers.  Then everything stopped until it came off.

Um, I have something on me...

And then we got the cookies and milk set out, and hustled the kids off to bed.  They had been tracking Santa, and knew he was heading across the country!
