Christmas Eve Clous
My mom, her boyfriend Bob, and his daughter Jen joined us this year. It was our first Christmas at the new house.
Mom, Bob, Miranda, Jen, James
Miranda loves Bob
Kevin making my mom feel awkward before dinner.
James actually helped me marinate the pork the night before. It came out great!
As usual, Miranda started dinner in her baby chair but...
... ended up on our laps.
We exchanged a few presents too. Usually just the adults do presents Christmas Eve (the kids have Christmas morning) but Jenny had to leave so she gave the kids an awesome Mr. Potato Head and a tiny mechanical puppy.
James re: Mr. Potato Head "We have like this at school!"

Hugging my big 4-year-old boy!
After I put Miranda to bed, Kevin, Bob, and I took James on a short little walk around the neighborhood to see people's Christmas lights. Did I mention it was like 70 degrees?
Then it was time to prepare for Santa!
James put out the milk and chocolate chocolate chip cookies we made together.
