Wordless Wednesday- Christmas at Our House

The Christmas season is my most favorite time of year.  I love watching my children's excitement over each activity.  I love the lights, decorations and yummy smells.  I love cuddling up together on the couch watching Christmas movies.  It's all so special! Here are some of the things we did this year to make our holiday a special one.

My children loved decorating the tree.  
This year my sister gave us this artificial one. :-)

Baby N rocked Christmas cloth diapers all month long!  He wore everything from Christmas Thomas the train (shown above), Grinch, Charlie Brown Christmas, Mickey Mouse Christmas, Santa diapers and Winnie the Pooh Christmas (shown below).

He also enjoyed ripping the boys off gifts and eating them!

We made Gingerbread Playdough and it was a BIG hit!  

It smells awesome and the kids had so much fun pretending to make cookies with all the Christmas cutters. 

Recipe can be found here.

We watched all our favorite Christmas movies.  
Here is my oldest kicking back watching Rudolph.

Ate fun holiday foods

We did lots of baking!  

We made Gingerbread Cookies, Peppermint Fudge, Peanut Brittle, and Reindeer Cookies.

J Bug and his gingerbread man

It didn't last long!

Our Peanut Butter Reindeer Cookies

The little boys got quite the workout jumping up and down smashing a bag of candy canes against the tile. We needed crushed candy canes for our Peppermint Fudge

We got lots of snow.  It was beautiful!

Christmas Eve was a winter wonderland!

Spent Christmas Eve with my husband's sister and her husband who drove here all the way from Boston!  Games were played, lots of food eaten and good times were had by all.

For Christmas Eve night we had borrowed a 12 passenger van from some friends and drove around town looking at lights and sipping hot cocoa.

and the kids got their traditional new jammies.

We ended the night with the very last of our Christmas books (we read one per night in December).  This one was "The Dog Who Found Christmas".

There were lots of surprises on Christmas morning!

Including a fun breakfast of Rudolph Pancakes!!!

And lot's of snuggles for baby on his first Christmas

I hope your Christmas season was equally as blessed as ours.

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

My parents rent a 15 passenger van so they can take all 5 grandkids (and some adults) Christmas light looking! My husband and I didn't go this year because we had to help the elves Christmas shop. ;)
My boys would love E's rocket jammies in the gingerbread picture! :)

So glad you and your family had a wonderful Christmas. Those reindeer pancakes are super cute and I really like the gingerbread playdoh idea.
