Favorite Photo Friday - "Christmas 2012"

December 28, 2012

We had a wonderful Christmas holiday... it just went by so quickly!
I did not have the opportunity to take too many photos, but I wanted to post the few that I did manage to snap.
Let's start with my Iphone photos from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
Instagram Christmas 2012
Top Row: The girls in front of the tree on Christmas Eve
Middle: Some of the gifts on Christmas Morning
Bottom: Reagan playing her new LeapPad 2, The family playing apples to apples before bed, and some of the goodies we drank and ate on Christmas.

I did bring out the big camera on Christmas Morning, but it was quite chaotic with wrapping paper flying off faster than you could imagine, toys all over the place, etc...... but the joy on their faces is undeniable.

I think they were both in a state of shock over the dream house!!

They also received matching scooters for their American Girl Dolls.....

Although Reags had other ideas for hers.
She thought it was for her to ride:)

Christmas Morning Nick Collage
Nick was at his Dad's this year for Christmas Eve and first thing Christmas Morning. We alternate each year. He arrived just after lunch and got to open his pile of presents. As he gets older, his Christmas list is getting smaller. He only put one thing on his list this year and was pretty excited when he opened it. He has an iPhone, but it is maxing out on memory and he wanted the new Itouch 5th Generation.....so that is what Santa brought him, along with some accessories and new clothes!

My family has been here with us since Monday and they left yesterday to head back to Rhode Island. They took Nick along with them so he could enjoy the holiday break with cousin Eddie. Later today we are heading up to The Cape to see the other side of our family.... we will get Nick on our way home!

I really have not had much time to play online, so these photos are nothing fancy, but wanted to share a glimpse of our holiday with y'all!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and a Happy New Year!!
See you all in 2013!

the long road

They're all gorgeous Lisa, and perfectly capture the excitement of Christmas morning with little children! It's always chaotic, isn't it?
It's amazing how the list gets shorter as they get older, and the gifts Santa brings get more tiny (but more expensive!).
Glad you've a few more days' "break" left before work resumes, so enjoy it!

"Not fancy"....are you kidding me!!! You could take pictures w/a polaroid and it will look amazing!! I see you did GOOD on the dollhouse!! This Christmas was NO ASSEMBLING FOR US!!! Whoooopie!!! I did buy Bre a VESPA SCOOTER much like the one for your girls AG dolls. I think I enjoyed riding it "almost" as much as her. It's pretty powerful for her so I rode along until I think she can get the hang of it!! Talk about FUN!!! So glad to get "A PEEK THRU YOUR WINDOWS" AT CHRISTMAS!! Love the nightgowns and I will ALWAYS say...that Nick is one HANDSOME YOUNG MAN!!! Happy New Year to you and your family my friend!!

The smiles on all three of your kiddos faces says it all! It looks like Christmas at your house was fabulous. And I'm sure it smelled fabulous too!

Beautiful moments you've captured, Lisa! The dreamy picture of your daughter admiring the Christmas tree is lovely, such as the pictures of your daughters with the pink- house and your very handsome son! What a lovely Christmas you've had!
