Our Christmas 2011

Our Christmas this year was so fun with James, who is now 21 months old.  Christmas Eve we always spend with my sister-in-law and her family, eating, playing with kids, and decorating cookies for Santa.  These small cousins in their Christmas pj’s melt me:)

James loves to sit on this couch in his cousins’ play room.  He’s got his best Gabba Gabba friends with him. 
We began Christmas morning with our traditional sour cream coffee cake.

We didn’t overwhelm James with gifts, but he definitely understood the concept of opening presents this year.

Let's be friends!

We had a low-key Christmas dinner at our house, complete with crab cakes, beef tenderloin, sautéed mushrooms, and roasted carrots, onions and potatoes.  Dessert was fudge, brownies, and assorted cookies.
  I hope you enjoyed your holiday too.  Are you looking forward to the new year??

    So adorable I can't stand it. My children were in the same pjs. One in pink and one in blue! LOVE. So fun to see James on Christmas morning. And your dinner sounded delicious. Hugs to you.

    Super adorable! Funny too because my 5 year old son has those jammies. Even at 5 he still loves his "feet" jammies!

    Happy New Year!

    So glad you all had such a wonderful Christmas! James looked so adorable in his pjs. We have sour cream coffee cake every Christmas morning as well (Michaela does too!!) I cannot believe how much James has grown this year. Exciting times ahead!!!

    Oh, James is such a cutie pie! I love the pic of him and Dad too. Seeing James brings back fond memories of my son who is now grown.
