Since we are traveling for Christmas, we had our own little family Christmas last night/this morning. We started last evening with a trip to Sonic for shakes and then a tour of Christmas light displays. When we got home the boys were allowed to open one present - their new Christmas jammies. (Another fun project with my friend Jenny.) Then Joseph and I had our annual slumber party where we stayed up too late and watched movies. Joseph made it to a rocking 2 am this morning and enjoyed Home Alone 3 very much. He added "pet mouse" to his Christmas list which was vetoed by mama.

Brown paper packages tied up with string - our wrapping theme this year.
The boys checking out the goods this morning. Fortunately they weren't at all upset that they only got to open about 1/4 of those as the rest are for extended family.
Yay! Present time!
Jacob opened his "choo choo" from his brother and wasn't interested in opening anything else afterward.

After the presents were opened we took the boys upstairs to find their new Lego table. There will be more on this great/easy DIY project later.
This was followed by a yummy Brunch of Frittata, Sausage Pinwheels and North Pole Smoothies.
Now the boys are playing and Mama is packing up for our road trip. The Christmas Baking Extravaganza is ready to go!
