even if i'm late! i've finally got some time to put a few pictures up. we were all spoiled on christmas and we're still unpackaging the toys for the kids.
here's the big gifts from santa before the kids opened them. kaleigh got her littlest petshop fitness center, shouting with excitement as she opened it; connor got a new big boy bike and a super deluxe hot wheels race track, which he couldn't wait to open!
here's val before he opened my present to him. i couldn't believe i kept it a secret from him...it was really hard! i got him tickets to a redsox game in boston! my parents gave us the airfare as an awesome present and christa helped with one of the nights at a hotel. i don't know who's more excited, me or him?!
we spent the afternoon and evening at christa and mark's house. we celebrated christmas in a non-traditional way--mexican style. we had a ton of delicious mexican food: tamales, fajitas, quesadillas, tacos, spanish rice, chips & salsa, and plenty of guacamole! oh my! it was soooo yummy! the kids even had a pinata to end the night. it was fun to watch them take a few whacks at it.
on top of all the yummy mexican food for dinner, there was also a ton of delicious desserts to choose from. most importantly...chocolate! kaleigh and connor decorated some sugar cookies that i made and brought with us.
everyone was entertained by playing guitar hero or watching others play it. kaleigh couldn't pull herself away from it. rock on!!
