Christmas with the Gagginis
Sunday was Christmas round #1. We braved the snow and coldness and headed to Ponderosa Heights to share a wonderful dinner with my family at Mom and Dad's house. We (thankfully!) made it up the driveway and hauled all of our stuff into the house to be greeted with the wonderful smells of Christmas!!! ham, potatoes, roast beast...I mean roast beef!...lazy susan salad, fried green beans, cookies and fudge...It was so very, very, very good! I practically had to roll out to the van. After dinner we opened presents! The kids were DYING to get to the part of the day.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care....A LOT of stockings!
Everyone was thrilled with their goodies. Mama and Pap-pap did it again!
What do you do with a scurvy pirate??? Arghh matey!
Isabella LOVED her makeup... maybe a little bit too much!
The boys trying out their new remote control cars.
Hannah and Gianna waiting patiently for the green light to unwrap!
Jake was focused on putting together his 3d dinosaur puzzle.
DJ was doodling on Gia's art desk.
Chris is more than meets the eye!!!! He was loving his new transformer jammies.
The best gift of all...the Steelers win!!! A true Christmas miracle!!
