WOW! What a fun day & it is only 3:15pm. It started last night w/ my family as we celebrate on Christmas Eve b/c that is the way they do it in Argentina. It was a festive night. We were all very merry (yep, the wine was being poured freely)! The kids were only up until 7pm but long enough to enjoy their Abuelo, Abuela, Tio Ian, & Tia Jesse. We also managed to get a few shots of the family all together. What fun!
We also got a chance to bake some cookies this year since we didn't have a lot of time to do shopping. Ok, so the cookies came out of a package but who cares? It's the thought that counts, right? We even customized them a bit. Our neighbor, a die hard Aggie (Texas A&M) got a hand crafted Bevo (University of TX mascot), hehe. We love teasing him about it as the schools have a very long history of rivalry! The kids got in on the action. We gave them the cookie cutters to play w/ & they cheered Mommy on while she was covered in flour, racing against the pumping clock. Daddy also decided it was time for the kids to taste icing for the 1st time. FUN!
We also celebrated Christmas w/ Grandma & Papap today. The kids got spoiled as did Todd & I. Thank you all so much for everything! WOWSA! We have yet to eat Christmas dinner but it is already the best day ever. This year it wasn't about giving, it was about receiving the 3 most precious children. God picked us & we are BLESSED! We thank him every night we put Sofi, Gabi, & Ian to bed.
