Christmas

We had our Christmas get together with Justin’s side of the family on Saturday Dec. 19th at his sister’s house. The twins still didn’t understand the concept of “unwrapping” and “new toys” our niece Kaia however was so adorable to watch. She will be three the day after Christmas, so she is at an age where everything is exciting. She would open gifts like toothpaste and shout for joy and hug it. She would show me everything she opened and tell me “it’s my toothbrush,” “ it’s my Einstein (toothpaste)” “It’s my (fill in the blank)” When she opened a small dish set from us, she screamed “I love it, I love it, I love it” Later in the evening she got another gift from her mom. It was something she had no idea what it was and exclaimed “Oh, it’s my favorite!” I truly enjoyed spending time with my husband, children, niece and nephew, sisters = my family. It brought a smile to my face and joy to my heart! IMG_4239IMG_4235 IMG_4223 IMG_4233

Where are the pictures of moms and aunts in tutus?? Looks like a great time. I would've loved to hear Kaia opening her gifts.
