Scenes from Christmas Day

Christmas Day is not as tradition-centric (I just made up a word! It's so much cooler then traditional) for us as our Christmas Eve is. But we had a wonderful one all the same.


Christmas day was full of ripping and exclaiming...





Shared excitement and thrills (Benj and Gabe demonstrate their joy of a particular Wii game with 1980's dance moves)....






Hugs and gratitude





Modeling of newly acquired wardrobe items and accessories...


Finny took this picture and kindly cropped out my morning face so I wouldn't have to.


High fat breakfasts



Exploring our creative sides (Gracie breaks out her easel amidst breakfast making carnage) you can't ignore the call of the artiste within.


Hanging out with friends (and elves). This is just before Nathan popped our brand new Fifa soccer ball from South Africa. But he didn't mean to. He was just trying to help.



Partying and getting down














It rocked.

Looks like and awesome day. I love the Michael Jackson jacket. I might be a little jealous. I could totally rock that jacket.

Ah crap guys. Why can't we be there? You made me and Q friend sad with your invitation the other day. We just don't have good hang out buddies anymore. (sniff sniff)

Janet said...

I love love love the fun that I FEEL when I look at these. You have a very special family and I love that you know it and are so mindful and appreciative of it all. What an inspiration you and ALL your family are to me.

I especially liked the Aaron/Gabe hug. Aaron has that "he is too cute - I need to squash him - can I break him?" look on his face. Looked like a good Christmas day cause they can be so anti-climaxical after a magical Christmas Eve event.
Love you.
Marmie.
PS Might have to smack Nathan!
