I am totally NOT Bah Humbug, but we didn't put up a Christmas tree this year. Reasons being that Marc worked every single day from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve and I couldn't get it out of the storage by myself. Also, glass ornaments and Griffin certainly would not mix. I'll be sure to get some shatterproof ornaments before next years festivities.
So here is where our presents were presented.
We had a great morning! Griffin, however, doesn't like to open presents. "No paper, no presents." He would run and hide behind the chair when we tried to get him to open them. So we would take the paper off and then he was excited saying, "open it, open it!" And then while Marc or I was trying get the toys out of the darn twist ties/screws that kept them in the box, Griff would stand there and say, "Thank you! Thank you Dada, Thank you Mama!" over and over again. The more excited he got, the higher pitched his little voice got. It was pretty adorable.
Luke, on the other hand, loved the paper and boxes and his flashy new toy that lights up and makes music.
I love to see Griffin get down on the floor and play with Luke. It makes me so happy!
So, I'm pretty sure that this wrapping idea is gonna be a hit coming up on Pinterest. Not only is it very eye pleasing, we're going "green" people! All you need are a few used sheets of road construction plans and some white duct tape! I love my husband and his awesome creativity!
And it doesn't stop there! Rather than a stocking, I got a soccer sock filled with all kinds of great loot!
After the boys all napped we headed over to my parents for dinner with the Miller fam.
We had our very own little Christmas miracle. Luke pooped! It had been 17 days since his last poop! Overshare, I know! And yes I know that's not normal, but for my boys it really is and I have taken them to the doctor and they are really ok, so please don't think I'm a bad mom. But he decided to wait until he was dressed in his cutest Christmas clothes to blow it all out so he had to wear the reserve outfit all day.
Hiding out in the corner planning his next scheme of mischief making...

We never got a family photo with all of us that day so this is the best I could do!
