Christmas 2012: Part 2

We had Christmas with my family in College Station this year.  Evelyn is due to arrive in the next two weeks or so, so the Paweleks were staying put!  We arrived in College Station on Monday evening with just enough time to change the girls into their matching Christmas dresses and head to church.  For some reason we didn't get a picture of them...maybe because it is next to impossible to capture the two busy bodies in a picture together.


After church, we had a dinner, visited, and opened our matching Christmas PJ's to wear to bed.  Fernandez Family Christmas Eve Tradition.  Barry & Michael especially love it.  On to Christmas Day...


I have a feeling this may be the last year of a "leisurely, sleep in past sunrise" Christmas morning...so we took full advantage.  We cooked breakfast, ate and did stockings.


We then let the girls open all their presents.  They would unwrap them, then insist on having everything opened so they could play with them.







My parents were thoughtful enough to buy Cora and ENTIRE instrument set.  Drum, piano, xylophone, and recorder included.  We had quite the concert.



Sawyer got a much quieter gift.  The girls climbed in and out between music sets.


And then it was nap time and adult Christmas time.  It literally took us hours to open gifts, but it was so much fun watching the girls get so excited about everything...and then crash!  But, they were ready to go when they woke up and the playing continued.  They talked Buelo into lots of walks in the wagon.



Evidence of the matching PJ's.


And Barry & Michael's enthusiasm.


They have so much Christmas spirit.  Then the temperature dropped about 40 degrees so the playing continued inside.


After being in the house all day, and still in our PJs we decided that we needed to get out of the house for a little bit.  We went to Santa's Wonderland in College Station and it was so neat!


Cora was on Santa overload and Sawyer enjoyed driving.



Yes, we were still wearing our pajamas.  It was a wonderfully relaxing day!  I will leave you with a little Christmas song and dance from Sawyer.  She is a natural on the recorder.  And her dancing...amazing.



Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas as well!
