Happy, Merry, Blessed

We had a fabulous Christmas this year. Full of family, fun, gifts, joy, love, relaxing, playing, sleep, and (finally) wellness for all. As is the norm, Christmas lasted 3+ days with celebrations at my parents, our house, and then to Atlanta to celebrate with ^J^'s family. Typically at some point I get overwhelmed by it all but this year it was just fun and relaxation. Everyone went back to school/work today and none of us were ready for it. It was just too short and we all could have used a few more days home together. 

Here are a few highlights:

A present-fest at my parent's. Aunt P.J. was here for Christmas too which made it even more fun!
Finally got his skateboard!
Wishful thinking, maybe Santa knows something we don't!

Love these looks of opening...

This was a big LEGO Christmas and we loved it!

At my Great-Aunt's house
She always has such a great spread!

Gift-giving from their great-great Aunt!

 Hugs all around!

(H) got a hold of my camera and took shots of all kinds of things, this one is my favorite!

This kid has got it. 
Drawing after the kids go to bed. 
Playing playing playing!

 It's been fun, now it's time to clean...

It really looks like a fun day! The photos take me back to my own childhood and all the fun and excitement of that special morning. I am glad everyone is well again and happy and safe.
Happy New Year.
