But then he took it off. Apparently it was too hot. Oh well; we have that one picture of him in a sweater. We'll treasure the memory.
Sebastian was really excited about his gift from Grandma and Grandpa: a dump truck that he gets to ride, and dump his body weight full of megablocks! Oh yeah, and honk the horn. Incessantly.
Matthew got Transformers. Here we're not trying to figure out what it turns into, but how to get it out of the damn box!
Matthew was a great Christmas elf. Here he's giving a gift to Grandma.
Here Grandpa is helping Sebastian play with some of his new toys.
And props have to be given to the photographer for the day: Way to go, Aunt Julie! Without her, no pictures would have been taken. Or at the very least, none with the same sort of panache. Also, we maybe would not have gotten this gem: The Serious Face:She did take a break at the end of the evening to read stories to Matthew. Luckily the camera was not far, and I got this one. A true treasure. A wonderful day was had by all, with more food than we care to think about (but the scales won't let me forget about!) and laughs heard a mile away (mostly Aunt Julie's antics). Our kids were pretty much asleep before we had them in the car for the ride home...a sure sign that they had a wonderful time. As did the rest of us.
We did not pose Matthew; this is really how he sleeps in the car.
Of course, Santa did not leave Sebastian gift-less. He's had his moments, but a lump of coal was not in the cards. He got a Wonderpets flyboat. Santa must have had some great elves to blow that one up. By herself. Without an airpump. Hot air jokes are not appreciated.
Since the kids are constantly fighting for our laptops, we thought they could get ones for each other.
And Matthew's from Sebastian
Now they fight over each others'.
Thank you for such a wonderful Christmas, family!

Poor Sebastian; with a December birthday, things tend to get behind because there is SO much going on. As a result, he gets a whole post all to himself.
The Cake (a Monkey for our Monkey)
Our Monkey eating his Monkey (cake).
"Uh, Lisa? What was that noise, and why does he look so happy?" (I like to play the game of "Last one holding the baby changes the diaper;" especially with Uncle Jason).
The Obligatory Group Shots. You can see how much our children enjoy them.
