Merry Christmas!

Christmas 2014 was simply fabulous. As usual, we opened our gifts on Christmas Eve so as to enjoy the present frenzy and still leave plenty of time for Christmas Day skiing. It's a tradition we started a few years ago and we love it! The kids love opening presents a day early, and we all love saving the majority of our Christmas Day for family time on the mountain (our favorite place with our favorite people!).

Here's a review of our Christmas highlights:

Ben got honey sticks in his stocking. By the time the grown-ups woke up, he was on number seven.  SEVEN.
Chorney bonded quickly with her AT-AT reindeer
We started Christmas off with a bang - Sam was suitably thrilled about his big gift
And Sasha loved her new boots! I love that our girl got this excited about boots. She has good taste.
We got to celebrate Christmas with Grammy this year and she brought the girls supercool dresses from her trip to India.
Ying insisted on wearing hers all morning. We couldn't blame her.
By this point the AT-AT had already lost its head.
Ben's Christmas gift was a bit of a mystery. We said that when he figured out what this piece was, we'd give him the rest of his gift. He was really confused for a really long time.
Tie dye shirt time!
This year we had Miyazaki-themed shirts. I think they turned out quite nicely.
Ben has been pestering us for a Wubble Bubble ball for months. He loves it. I give it a 3 day lifespan in our home.
Ben finally figures out his gift! But we had to give him ample hints, such as loving him half as much as we love WanYing (who got a bike for Christmas)
And the rest of our Christmas was filled with:
Huge messes
Lots of this (he's doing great!)
And lots of this
A whole lot of this
And a bunch o' Lego assembly as well - the new Princess Lego sets are awesome.

From all of us to all of you, we wish you very happy holidays, great family time, and lots and lots of snow!!
