Christmas Day 2012!

This year Christmas was so much fun. Can I just say this Mama loves entertaining and this year we got to host Christmas for almost 20 people!!  We had the privilege of having our Anaheim 1st Ward Missionaries over for the afternoon.  Also of course my family that was local came and Bryan's Mom and her friend Ginger came along with our good friend, Ziggy!  Aside from all of that this was Owen's first Christmas and he was super into eating the wrapping paper!

We did stockings first and this year, Santa brought the boys a bottle of soda, they were over the moon!


In the stockings the boys found hexbugs!  they were fun to play with on the plates at breakfast because they just went in circles.

I made Isaac a Pillow for his bed to replace the Christmas pillows he had taken and used all year this year.

It wouldn't be a "boy Christmas" without some superheros!

This year Kevin and Adam used their own money to buy gifts for each of their brothers they were so excited to give their gifts.  I loved it!

Kevin received Bakugan Balls from Grandma and Grandpa, he had been asking for these for months! (no he doesn't play the game, just wanted the balls)

Check out this get up!

Owen opening a gift with mommy!

so many things to play with!

Then  there was dinner!  We have a big table but not enough for 18 so we opted for a kid table this year and it worked out perfectly.

My lovely sister and the me...Note to self,  do something with your hair...hhhmmmm

 Finally it was time for dessert, my favorite! I do love that part of all holidays!

Uncle Geoff brought a crazy dancing hat, it was a big hit!

Owen had a fun filled day and was still happy at the end, amazing!

Ready for bed but playing games with Uncle Geoff!

Merry Christmas!  I can't wait to do it again next year...there is nothing better than Christmas with good friends and family!
