Christmas 2012

Happy Merry Belated Christmas to you!  We were in Aberdeen for Christmas this year and the time went so fast.  Left very little blogging time.  That’s my excuse anyway. Before we left we opened up our presents for our family.  Its a good thing we did too b/c we were packed to the gills as it was!  Here’s Avery opening her first gift.

Ooooh a PINK Wild Jersey!  Now she doesn’t have to wear Dylan’s old jersey anymore!

Here is Dylan’s big Lego gift from us – a giant helicopter that he’s been wanting forever.

He put it together all by himself earlier today.

My turn.  Eric “wrapped” it in wrapping paper that had just been unwrapped from one of the kid’s gifts.  He’s so creative.

Ooooh dark chocolate covered raspberry goji berries!

Avery got a new dance-a-rina outfit for dance class.  This is her “I’m pleased with myself” face.

I made them a GINORMOUS photo book highlighting 2011.  Its seriously yearbook sized.

And here we are in Aberdeen.  Dylan had gotten 2 transformers from us for Christmas and Eric had been all mad and frustrated with them.  Uncle Tommy was able to figure them out!  Naturally, the kids transformed them back to transformers after all his hard work.

These are some decorations our niece Natalie made.  She churned them out so fast that it prompted me to ask her if she was of elf descent!  I mean, seriously?!?!

Cousins being silly.  Okay, Dylan being silly.  His tangerines kept squirting him in the eyes so Gpa gave him some sunglasses.

Just having a before dinner cocktail.  No big deal.

Before we knew it, it was time to open presents (a day early this year since apparently people have to work on the 26th nowadays???).  Avery got this fancy new Hello Titty blanket from Jon, Renae, Natalie and Daniel.

Jon had the last present like he does every year.  Luckily, no one pulled out a stray present from somewhere after he had opened it.  At least, not yet anyway. ; )

Avery set up all her new toys on the piano for playing.  And yes, there were some items that went IN the piano.  Including the tongs that were used to try and get the lost items out.   Fun times!

Gma took these 2 pictures. Which explains the weird focusing.

Didn’t really take many photos after this!  We left bright and early the 26th, so time went way too fast.  Feeling kinda bummed that its over already.  But – good news!  Christmas part 2 is comin’ up this weekend!  Might need a best of 2012 post!  If I find the time…. ; )
