We spent Christmas Eve with my parents. My parents cooked an amazing meal and the kids were all spoiled. Louis and I actually took a picture together, woohoo.
Uncle Sean got Blake a bow and arrow...he was VERY excited
Christmas morning we woke up at our house to see what Santa left us. The kids were loving their new rocking horses!!
Blake had asked for a "Big Bumblebee just like Mason's"...Santa was smart to know just what to bring
My kids are ALL about the cozy and Brooke loved her new Minnie pillow
Santa also brought Brooke new jammies and she clearly wasted no time breaking them in
After we cleaned up we headed over to the Cary Malic house to keep the celebration rolling. By this point the kids were totally over getting their pictures taken while opening gifts. Heck, getting this family picture was a process and bribery in itself.
The kids and us had the whole week off of school/work and the weather got a bit warmer (all the snow melted) so the kids took a walk!
Part of our Christmas gift with the Malic crew was heading to the Chicago Botanic Gardens to see their Winter Wonderland exhibit. We all bundled up (it got COLD again) and headed over. It was so pretty and I can't even imagine how much effort went into making it!!.
Wrigley Field (Go Cubs Go)
The kids were TOTALLY NOT into taking pictures, and they were a bit crabby so this was the best we got!!
