When George opened this present from Tim's parents he exclaimed, "I've wanted this my whole life!"
Haha . . . um it wasn't even in existence a few months ago.
Lexi didn't care too much about the gifts, but she did enjoy the boxes and paper.
Christmas Eve we always go to church with my family and then have a meatless pasta dinner at their house.
It is fun to have the whole family dressed up.
We also put the kids in their Christmas pajamas and open presents with my extended family that night.
It is amazing to me that the Tragos' used to be a family of five, and now our Christmas celebration entails a family of eleven.
Love our growing family.
Christmas morning we wake up in our own Bettelli house and open presents with just the five of us.
It is hectic, but I love every second.
Around 10 my family comes over for a brunch.
This year I made the Monkey bread staple, but changed up the rest with hashbrowns, 2 crustless quiches (one with ham, mushrooms & cheddar cheese, and one with broccoli & mozzarella cheese), fruit and orange juice.
Aunt Gina couldn't help but get in on the Super Hero action.
Christmas night we went back to my parents for a lamb dinner.
We also got a special visit from our friend, Christin Carson.
So fun to see her and Richard.
It was truly a blessed season for our family.
And I would be lying if I didn't say one of my highlights was dressing Lexi.
She actually had more outfits than she had a chance to wear.
And we already have three 2T get-ups hanging in the closet for next year.
