Christmas dresses for the Sunday before Christmas. Z wore hers from last year, and Tiny’s was her birthday present from her Grandma. They didn’t match, but they did match for the cousin party later in the week:
where they danced,
decorated “Christmas trees”,
and generally had a grand ol’ time.
(For Aunt Cindy: from left to right: Zoe, Aiden, Tiny, Ethan, Elenoa, Kyleigh, Dylan)
The next day, because we forgot the above pictured Christmas tree at Auntie’s house, we decorated our own gingerbread houses. Z thought she being sneaky wiping all of the frosting off from between the candy and eating it. When I laughed and told her it was ok to do, she was quite confused.
On Christmas Eve we went to San Francisco with the extended family for lunch at Pier 39:
Tiny was quite happy during lunch with her blankie and Pooh Bear. This was before the ear infection of doom kicked in. Doom, I tell you.
Then we explored the Pier:
Zoe, modeling on the Pier:
The girls got new pjs on Christmas Eve, (we all did – the joys of being the one picking the presents!).
Tiny rocked the Cindy Lou-Who look,
and Zoe did the robot while I took pictures. (Quite literally, she did the robot dance. I could post a series of pictures, but I won’t.)
Then my camera battery gave out, and Tiny woke up with an ear infection, which we didn’t know about until 2 days of screaming later.
It was lovely.
But really, we did have a wonderful time, despite the crazed, hysterical screaming. Everyone loved their presents and was quite spoiled. (Especially me! Woohoo!)
I’ll post pictures from Christmas Day if I can figure out where they are (we took them with the other camera).
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too, sans screaming! ðŸ™‚
