Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas... in that order!

 Holidays. Family. Chaos. Gifts. Food. Laughter. Noise.

We crammed so much into three days. Since this was our Christmas as well as our Thanksgiving, we did all we could to make the short time together count. I think there's some magic when everyone is together. I can't explain it, but it is just magical, a gift.

We decorated holiday ornaments, we opened gifts, we cooked, we baked, we ate,  we shopped, we went to the movies, we looked at lights, we got mani/pedis, we waited in crazy long Black Friday lines, we had a birthday party, we watched the Macy's parade, our elves appeared, we played in the snow, we played "indoor" games but above all we just enjoyed being together.

 I just have to say that at some point, everyone was out but me and these guys. We somehow got into the best, craziest, loudest game of hide and seek EVER. It was just wonderful. We were all laughing so hard and having so much fun. AJ kept telling on himself and then helping find Sissy. Daredevil could be heard cracking up from his hiding place and Nick tended to hide in plain sight which was hilarious when Sissy would walk right by him!
