Christmas 2013!

Now that I am fully recovered, I can post about Christmas 2013. We were so busy. I swear as the kids get older, I have no life. They have so much to do. There were holiday shows, Christmas gifts to buy, holiday party to get ready for, SO MANY gifts to wrap on Christmas eve (I'm a slacker) and then SO MUCH organizing to fit in all the new toys! I was wiped out!

I took these pics prior to Christmas since Amberly & Gian would be at their mom's this year on Christmas morning and I wanted pictures in pajamas!

At 6:15am Adrian came running into the room "SANTA CAME!!!" It's super cute and all but when you go to bed at 2am exhausted form cooking and wrapping gifts, it isn't super cute. So here he is.....

He received so many presents. He must have been very good this year (he wasn't but I won't ruin it for him).

Opening the "BIG GIFT", the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lair. This playset is massive!

 After all the unwrapping, they decided it was time for WiiU!

I host a day-long Christmas day luncheon/dinner at my house every year. My whole family, family friends and personal friends stop by. There is tons of food and presents for all. There are also lots of people to play with all the new toys!

Here is our Christmas day family picture:

 Here is my family Christmas picture (from left to right: my nephew Mikey, ME!, my niece Amanda, my sister Elizabeth, ADRIAN!, my mom, my sister Elba and my brother Hector)

I had an amazing Christmas surrounded by family and friends. I am very grateful for holidays and I always take a moment to step back, look around and enjoy! I hope you had a blessed day with your families and friends!
