Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

I CANNOT believe it is 2011. That is crazy beyond me! We had a wonderful Christmas this year. The babies had SO much fun....which made me and Josh have SO much fun too. It's so much fun watching their excitement. They LOVED opening presents...and wanted to play with the toys immediately after they were unwrapped (Big improvement from just the boxes and bows they were interested in last year!) We made a few stops in our days of celebrating...Christmas Eve at my mom's extended family's get-together, Christmas Day at home in the morning, Josh's grandma's for lunch, then my dad's family for the afternoon, Day-After with Josh's family, then Day after New Years at my mom's with her brother and his family....lots of running around, but lots of wonderful celebrations!

In my own photo collection i took over the holidays, i selected my favorites to put in a separate folder....which narrowed the 550 pics to a mere 150...so instead of sitting here uploading pics all night, i picked my favorite of each baby at each get-together to share with the cyber world.
Here we are all dressed up on Christmas Eve...
