our christmas day

This year, Inez started our Christmas morning at 8am. Gwen had to be woken up which she wasn’t happy about. She changed her mind when she saw the Hello Kitty tent and immediately wanted down from Dave’s arms to “get in it,” loot and all.

Inez asked for a “stuffed chihuahua” from Santa since she can’t have a real one (I’m kind of allergic). She ended up getting three and was in heaven.

I always love the Christmas morning curlers.

And even though this picture is blurry, I had to add it. Little Miss Sunshine has sure learned how to pout.

Then we went to Grandma and Grandpa Lesue’s for some brunch. Dave’s Dad loves and collects hats, so when we went to Disneyland we got him some mouse ears of his very own. We didn’t feel like Grandma should be left out of the fun, so she got pink ones.

Then back to our house for naps and opening presents. Gwen quickly picked up on opening presents and could not be stopped. We would have to show her what she just opened while she was opening the next one, but she often pushed it aside as she was busy opening a new present.

She did get excited about a few items though.

Inez was chomping at the bit to open our presents. She takes after Dave.

She had a hard time containing her excitement, especially when it came to getting her very own Webkin.

Then we headed over to Grandma and Grandpa Kewish’s home for dinner and Grandma’s Birthday party (she’s a Christmas baby).

and making a pretty weak attempt of giving a kiss to Daddy.

It was a pretty busy and snowy day, but we loved spending time with our families.

And let’s just say that there’s more than one good reason Inez didn’t get a real Chihuahua.

    looks like you guys had a great christmas! every year at least one of the kids asks for a real dog as well!

    Joey wanted a dog or a hamster. As you know Joe is allergic to all things that have hair, animals that is. Christmas morning he was bummed when a dog was not under the tree waiting for him. The next day we hit KB toys closeout sale and he found a hamster in a little exercise ball and wanted it, so we bought it for him and Joe said after buying it “you know it’s not real right”. Joey got a bummed look on his face and said, “oh”. But it has worked out great the thing runs around our house in the ball and then Joey takes it out to talk to it and pet it. He doesn’t even have to clean up after it. That is my type of pet.

  4. Holly

    “I’m kind of allergic” I love it! That’s my excuse for cats, rabbits, and hamsters too.
