We Had a Merry Little Christmas

Christmas has come and gone, leaving behind only cookie crumbs, half-full bottles of wine (working on that) and about 10 pounds of our 16 pound ham (not even wanting to work on that). The girls made the "nice" list, paving the way for Santa's yearly visit - they even got to sit in his sleigh before he made his rounds!

Cousin Vilia came over for Christmas Eve dinner - Let the ceremonial belly-showing commence!
Maddy to Vilia - "Jealous??"

Cozy new pajamas were opened, ensuring a long snooze on the eve of the big day...

...and Vilia regaled Grandma and Grandpa with a classic game of peek-a-boo.
We really did eat dinner but by the time I got around to taking a picture most of it was in our tummies. We still managed to find room for chocolate mousse, snowball cookies and two pounds of See's Candy. At this point in my post I would like to point out that I myself only enjoyed 2 pieces of candy. I won't name names but the rest of you candy hoarders know who you are.
The stage was set for Christmas morning...
...and the girls ran downstairs to see what the big guy had brought.
New dollies...
...and a sled!

We had a very merry Christmas...

...and hope you did too!

Beautiful! We also do new jammies on Christmas Eve and Santa brought our girls the Journey dolls! He must have known our girls were similar in their cuteness. :) Happy New Year sweet family!
