The celebrating has begun!!

Our Christmas celebrations have begun, as of yesterday. woohoo!

After an extremely busy day at work we all rushed home to get changed for our first annual "Christmas PJ party" at my sister's house. We ordered carry-out (pizza and grinders), made cookies, let the kids open a gift -- we bought them all new pajamas--and we attempted to make a gingerbread house (that didn't go very well), but it was a total blast. The kids had such a wonderful time, and it was so much fun to watch them together, and also enjoy a little bit of adult time. My sister is definitely the hostess with the mostest and we love spending time over there. I will post pictures at a later date, but I don't have any on my camera right now. My batteries were completely dead, much to my dismay. I always remember my camera, but those other little details often slip my mind. Oh well. I took some good ones with my sis's camera.

Lily had such a great time. We stayed there until 11pm, so she was in her element, being such a little night owl. We are starting new traditions with our family and I am finding it to be so much fun. I feel like a kid again!
Well, I posted a picture of my sweet, little monkey. It has nothing to do with Christmas or our celebration last night, but it is still a funny picture. She literally wouldn't put those bananas down for two days straight. Ooh ohh, Ahh ahh!

Sophia likes to swing from her sassy seat on the counter! I think we all have spicy monkeys!
Merry Christmas!

That is so cool. I love the PJ Christmas party idea. May want to incorperate that as Mya gets older. What a great way to spend the evening. All our little girls are monkeys. Just gotta love them.
