Fun Friday Photos Christmas Vacation

I wanted to get a good picture of the presents that I wrapped from different recycled materials, but I completely forgot. Santa brings presents in Santa paper, and there were presents under the tree from my parents, my brother and from Will's dad and Katy. This year, I used a lot of recycled packing paper and decorated with crayons and tulle leftover from our wedding. I posted more ideas for saving money on wrapping paper in this post on my frugal living blog.

Christmas morning.

When I was a kid, we used to tear open the presents first thing in the morning.
Now, before we open presents I make the kids eat breakfast.
They get to look at their stocking goodies & eat.
My brother is holding down the fort while I get some caffeine in me.

Legos and Leapster video games of course.

As usual, Wee Nut is buckled into the highchair.
He was happy to sit and snack while opening presents.
Go Yankees!

She Nut is teething and always sucking on her thumb.
She has one tooth that we can see cutting through.

E Nut loves baseball and got his first bat from Grandpa.

Wing Nut loves to fish with his dad and they have been playing this fun game.
It came with a cool little fishing pole attachment for Wii controller.
Go Yankees!

Little Nut Nut and Wee Nut will be sharing a room when the addition is done.
Little Nut Nut got a tent and Wee Nut got the connecting tunnel.
Go Yankees!

We tried to get several pictures of Wee Nut in his tunnel.
He was moving much to fast and having way too much fun to try to stop him.
This is one of my favorite pictures of him.

She Nut, fast asleep in her bassinet, all this fun is so exhausting.
Of course she is sucking her thumb.

Little Nut Nut sporting his Saving Little Hearts "My brother is a Survivor" T-Shirt.

Wee Nut wearing his "I'm a Heart Surgery Survivor" T-Shirt.
He was too busy watching Elmo to even look at the camera.

 She Nut got something special for Christmas...
Can anyone guess what it is?

Can't believe you make your gang eat breakfast BEFORE opening their gifts! What a tough mommy!

Tyler, I can't wait to get all the little girlie Yankees gear for baby girl!

Kate, it is not so much as being a tough mommy as it is the necessity to have caffeine and food before the chaos begins LOL!

TAMMY said...

I'm guessing She Nut got a tooth for Christmas. Am I right?

Love the pics! Thanks for sharing!

Lisa Curcio said...

Tammy, she is cutting a tooth, but it is not through all the way yet.

Any other guesses?
