Christmas---the traveling tour with the fabulous four

Whew, what a week! Tonight is our first night home and I have to say we couldn't have picked a better night to be home. It is yuuuuccckkkyyy outside! brr. This snow is slushy... nothing compared to what we woke up to on Christmas morning...

But that wasn't the only wonderful thing we woke up too! Santa made a stop by good ole' Solta Drive and May children were ecstatic! Here's a look at the loot...

and the best gift of all... one very special, very cuddly, Rosie George.

But I am totally getting ahead of myself. Let's back this up a little.
Christmas Eve. It was COLD, SNOWY and BUSY. This was snow unlike any I had ever seen before. It was so windy outside that the snow swirled around your entire body. It was like standing in the very center of a snow globe. I loved every second of it.
We were all dressed up for mass. We typically go to Mass with all my siblings and take up an entire row. This year, they went to a different church and we stayed at St. Patrick's so Molly could see all her little school friends. I have to say it was a little odd to be such a small family at Christmas Mass but the service was still really nice--- and we looked cute too!

Then it was off to Granny's. The roads were well on their way to ICY so we took it nice and slow. So worth the venture out in cold weather though... because everyone knows how funny it is at Granny's...

Then it was home for star presents (pajamas). Gabe loved his present and we thought it was funny how they matched our hideous couch. Gabriel definitely appreciated the matching print. Molly, not so much.

It is so fun to have traditions with our own little family.

Then we were off.
Tour de Christmas.
Four houses in one day. Before you go thinking that we are oober popular and all ---don't. We're not. We just have a very LARGE family. See, we could have made our own Four Christmases movie and it probably would have been much funnier than the actual one. That's right--- total movie diss.

Christmas x 4... off we go!

we might have seen some after-effects of the sugar later into the night...
but it was worth it to spend Christmas with so many people we love!

What a fun Christmas! I love Molly's facial expression on the last picture. Classic!

Got the best platform for comparing hotel rates while being at home which I was looking for almost a decade and believe me I am not disappointed a bit! Great opportunity at rate compares! Five Stars!
