The Holly Jolly

It was a very merry one, for sure!  Christmas is 10x more magical in every way with kids!  Being a parent at Christmas time is simply the best.

The big gift from Santa was a workbench!  (It was a gift from my boss who has a partnership with Step2.  I feel like it was my end-of-year "work bonus"!)

Unpictured are Marc & Diana and Mom, who flew out from Idaho to spend the week with us!  We've all had so much fun visiting, venturing downtown to see the lights and get hot chocolate, making wassel, and playing games each night.  Its been SO nice to have family come to us this year and the boys really love their grandma!

 The gift I'm totally jazzed about is our new bObi!  This is a $700 robot floor sweeper!  Of course, it is a free review item that I will post about next month, but it arrived on Christmas Eve, and it just had to go under the tree!

We didn't get any snow, did you?  The first day we do, we're taking out our Snowman Kit from Travis & Holly!

There is a LOT of building going on around here!  What a great toy for these boys.

"Jake and the Neverland Pirates" was another Christmas theme this year.  These two have quite the pirate imaginations, and now they have an armful of toys to pretend with.  I feel very prepared and armed with entertainment ammo for hours and hours in indoor play.
