Belated Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve Family Photo

Late afternoon holiday dinner before heading off to church.

Opening some presents with Roman and Nonna.

Paris got her first "real" American Girl doll.
Mason enjoying some hot chocolate before heading to bed... and our hilarious singing/dancing x-mas tree from Pam and her family.

Hanging stockings...

...and playing a few games of Zingo before bed.

Santa came through with Criss Cross Crash for the boys.
...and Wii for everyone.

Even Moca got spoiled with a new bed and rope toy and more special gifts from Omi.

Opening the much wanted Dr. Bones color lab! Thanks to Aunt Pam, Uncle Dan, Nick, Trent and Krista.

Paris and her baking station for her doll.

Posing in her cute new outfit from Omi.

More December Fun...

We went to a cookie decorating party today and came home with a plethora of cute x-mas cookies.

Speaking of cute x-mas cookies... here are the kids coveting their one, special frosted x-mas cookie from Sugar and Spice.
Paris decorated her own ginger bread house meticulously...
While her brothers let loose on this one.
Here is Mason's side...

... and Alex's, which he fittingly named the zombie gingerbread house.

Here is part of Paris' Brownie troop on an ice skating outing.
Alex and Mason were lucky enough to tag along.

Paul and Paris' annual outing to the Christmas Carol play.

I couldn't resist posting this series of bowling pictures from Mason's first ever bowling experience.

December Activites

Picking out our Christmas tree.

Trimming the tree-

Putting on the final touches.

Paris' Brownie troop walked in the Parade of Lights in downtown Walnut Creek.
Paris and her friend, Portia making play dough x-mas cookies.

Paris took this picture of our Nativity set.

We were lucky enough to run into Santa at a store last week.
