Christmas Fun!


We've had such a fun month. One of our newer traditions is making gingerbread houses at Grandmas. We divide up into teams and see who can come up with the best, most creative house. I got stuck with 3 of the 4 kids so as you can see our house had zero order to it, which really makes me nervous. But they had so much fun sticking the candy everywhere. Tucker could hardly decorate because he was to busy shoving candy in his mouth. He had chipmunk cheeks full of this gross candy. I think he ate more than he decorated with! Good thing they spent the night with Grandma and Gramps, I didn't have to worry about the sugar buzz!








The highlight, as you can guess, is when Santa makes a personal visit to our house to check on our rugrats. It wouldn't be very practical of Santa if he didn't know Tatum and Tucker's correct address, I mean, what if he gave their presents to the wrong boy and girl? How tragic that would be! So to make sure they have been good and to be sure of where they live he in all his glory stops in with fun goody's and questions.







Santa is asking Tuck what he would like for Christmas. Tucker says he wants a skate board. Ummm, we got him that for his b-day, maybe we should re-think that one. Santa let Tuck look in his bag and choose a few fun things. He got a Skooby Do top, a candy cane, and like 4 army men. They both got candy canes and Santa was so sweet and gave them each their very own dollar! Yeah! Tatum can hardly believe it's all hers. She also got a fashionable electric yellow bracelet I'm sure she'll sport proudly.






They're showing off their very own moola! Notice all of Tuck's loot! He has to hold on tight just in case Tatum gets any funny ideas! Don't worry Tucker, she doesn't want your army men, she has her bracelet.
Well, before Santa left he gave them each a bat ring and told them they needed to all make a bat pact that they'll be good and if so he'll come back next year! Thank you Santa, we love you!












Another favorite this year was spending the night at Nonnie and Papa's house. They made mini gingerbread houses and of course they split into teams, the boy team and the girl, or grel as Tucker says, team. Oh they had "so much stinken fun".



They even got to sleep by the Christmas tree. Shhhhh....

Oh I am so jealous that you have family living close! What fun Christmas traditions, and I think that your gingerbread house turned out great...although this is coming from a girl who still uses graham crackers to make hers :)

That is so much fun! What luck that they got to sleep by the tree even! Santa had to be a pretty trickery fellow not to disturb the little ones. I am so glad you guys had a great Christmas! It's so fun with little friends that get so excited. Gingerbread houses are the best thing ever! I hope we get to hang out this week!
