I hope everybody had a great holiday. Sunshine and I spent the Christmas holidays together and we couldn’t be happier. But when you’re happy that normally means you’re too busy to blog very much; thus you’re getting a picture post today (which is probably more interesting than me yapping on and on anyway).
Once Ankle Biter and I made our way to Halifax on Christmas Eve, we thought it only made sense to watch a Christmas movie. The unanimous decision? "Elf"!! Will Ferrell movies can be hit and miss sometimes, but this movie has totally turned into a holiday classic. We loved it!
Once "Elf" was done, we all head out in the car to go Christmas light watching. Honestly, we hit the jackpot on one of our first houses...the lights were incredible and had traffic stopping on both sides of the road. As we tried to drive around the city looking for more houses with great Christmas decorations (well...I was looking for Griswald-esque houses), the kids started to get a little bored...so we made our way back home and settled in for the night while watching Santa updates on the NORAD website.
The Christmas tradition that Sunshine has started is that her kids are allowed to open up one gift on Christmas Eve and it's always new pajamas. This pic is the kids in their new PJ's...a tradition I'm glad to now be a part of with Ankle Biter.
No...you can't tell these kids are the offspring of CBG & Sunshine, can you??
I gotta say...Sunshine and I stood back and were quite impressed with what Santa had brought our children. Obviously, we'd give the kids an entire house full of gifts if we could...but the kids loved it and if they're happy, then so are we.
Ankle Biter on Christmas morning was about as happy as he could be. His happiness made ME happy.
And as happy as Ankle Biter was on Christmas morning, Sunshine's two girls were just as happy with their haul.
Emm was quite content to sit back and read once the presents were all opened and accounted for.
While Emm was reading, Ankle Biter and Mo were busy playing together. They really got along, and that made Sunshine and I very happy parents...knowing our kids got along so well. It totally helps our relationship blossom just that much more.
After we dropped Sunshine's girls off at their dad's, we all head off to have Christmas dinner with my family. It didn't take more than 10 minutes before he passed out in the back seat.
And that was our Christmas holiday. Details are insignificant. All that needs to be said is that at the end of the day, we all had a great time and it was one helluva family Christmas.
