To efficiently sum up our time together, as well as our celebrations of the holidays I figured a little (I use "little" relatively) recap would be the best way to go about it.
1. Christmas Eve and Christmas DayOur family of four spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day together, just us. We started the celebrations with Mass on Christmas Eve, followed by our tradition of opening two gifts, which are always new pajamas and a new ornament.
After we tucked the kids into bed Scott and I played Santa, which consisted of consumption of cookies and a lot less assembly of toys than the past few years.
The 26th brought a super early start filled with travel and relatively well behaved children, minus the one epic meltdown from Julia right before we boarded.
|During a quick stop in Vegas - where we didn't get off the plane - Marcus was invited to the cockpit. It was a toss-up as to who was more excited, Marcus or Scott and me, about this moment.|
