Christmas Day at Kevin's Parents' House

After having our Christmas dinner at my parents' house, we headed on over to my in-laws' house to open some gifts there. It was a short and sweet visit, but we had a great time. As they are Buddhist, we don't do anything real big, but the older siblings draw names and buy gifts for a couple of people in the family. Since we are the ones that are most well off, we buy more people presents and don't put our names in the drawing. It's really nice to know that we're giving them something they need and not putting a burden on them to buy us anything.

Christmas Day At My Parents' House

After we opened stockings and had a small breakfast, we headed over to my parents' house, to see the family again and we have "Christmas Dinner" for an early lunch. Again, like I said before, I wanted to get tons of pictures... I think we did pretty good... especially since these are only a handful of the pictures we took.. haha.

This is an awful picture of me, but here's me and my dad. I always used to sit in his lap!

Smelling our new perfumes.. hehe

Leala with Aunt Am and Uncle Shelby.

Sean being silly.

Kevin and my sister Sarah.

My dad and Sean playing... Boys... lol

Sitting down to eat! Yum!

Leala was excited to eat.. hehe

She looks guilty...


Too funny!

Running away from Uncle Shelby.

And again..


She actually let him pick her up! And she didn't cry.. She doesn't see him too often and she's always scared of him, but they had a lot of fun together.

We rarely ever get a picture of us without Leala. Not the best, but it's something!

Reading to the kids in the kitchen floor... not sure why.. lol

It was the best shot we could get that day... too bad part of the book covered my mom's face.. I still like it though.

The Sisters

Leala kept bringing more and more books to him.. They were trying to leave and she just kept bring book after book!

Christmas Day Morning

Here's some pictures we took from Christmas day morning. We open our stockings Christmas morning and then eat breakfast. My little sleepyheads were very tired... so tired, that I was able to get ready while they slept in a little bit. :)

They are so cute sleeping together!

Daddy finally got up, but Leala slept a little bit longer. :)

hehe... Miss Grumpy.. She was fine, until I pulled out the camera... haha... This is her running past me saying "No".

Daddy helping Leala open her stocking.

It was kinda hard to find a candy cane filled with candy other than chocolate (we still think she's allergic to chocolate).

Wearing her cute little headband she found in her stocking.

Matching shoes!

She loves them!

A little bracelet to match too... She's a Diva!

Daddy opening his stocking. He was happy that he got the Mind Freak Season 5. :)

Poor Leala... cute picture though.. I'm glad I caught her yawn in a picture!

YUM! Candy! I've been trying to hold off, but it was a nice treat! Good thing my present for Christmas was the Wii and Wii Fit Plus!! hehe...

Christmas Eve Night Presents

We hadn't planned on opening presents at our house on Christmas Eve, but we decided why not open a few! We also started a new tradition that we will do every year... we put our mattress in the living room and had a slumber party. It was fun and we all enjoyed it very much. :) Again, enjoy the picture overload... for the next few days.. haha...

A little potty and changing things for her doll. She is all about Holly sitting on the potty and clapping for her... too cute!

She pressed the play button on the little cd player and immediately started dancing.. too funny!

Horrible picture of me, but her face is too funny. She's still dancing!

I love him!

Giving Mommy a kiss!

Mommy Baby Kisses

CHEESE! haha..

Feeding her baby.. too cute!

Ooooo... lol.. new clothes for Holly.. lol.

Daddy Kisses

She thinks everything is hers... lol.. posing with Daddy's new clothes.


Daddy's new running shorts.. lol..

Now, it's time to eat some breakfast and get ready to go to MeMa and PaPa's house for Christmas dinner (which is actually lunch.. lol).
