TT: Holiday Aftermath

The aftermath... DOO, DOO, DOO.....

This was the start of our Christmas...and Matthew was ready for it to be over... Little did he know, we still had SIX more places to go!

Matty loved his new firetruck, from (great) Aunt Connie!


Yay! Mommy knows how to buy the good presents!
Daddy, and his new video game chair.


Do you see a theme in Matty's presents?



"WHY isn't Christmas over??" I know it's blurry...but really funny.


Learning about our World is the coolest, in Adam's book!


This is day TWO of Christmas. No brothers were harmed in taking these photos, despite the look on Matty's face.

Emily...well....is just Emily.


Andy was VERY perplexed by the toy companies' way of packaging toys.


Is she not the most beautiful baby??

Kayleigh was excited to be at Aunt Brittany's house for day THREE of Christmas!


Aunt Amy came home, for a visit!


"Uncle Paul" was a big hit.... ;)



We made it out alive! Thankfully, we have a whole year to prepare for another marathon Christmas.

Have the need for more Christmas Aftermath? Head over to Stacy's for more Theme Thursday!

Christina said...

I think you sound happier than anyone I know for christmas to be over! And with good reason - that's a lot of Christmas!

Wow you certainly had a hopping Christmas that's for sure. Looks like a lot of great family moments though. :)

Oh yea, but all the family is soooo great isn't it? Who would want to miss it!!!?
I know where Andy was going wrong with that packaging, it's all the little twist ties....every Barbie doll we ever owned (and there were LOTS) arrived bound up like Tiger Lily in the Pirate's Cave....
Glad you had such a good time.

LOL at the first photo... poor Matthew!

I'm pretty sure I would hit somebody in the head if I had to do one.more.Christmas. To much family equals hostile aggression with me. If you knew my family, you would concur.

Your so darn cute and happy though. I would love to meet you. Wait. Only if you gained a few lbs. and looked like me. Then it would be better. *wink*

You WERE busy! But it looks like you all had a great time!

Stacy said...

Wow, you did have lots of Christmas's. You need another year to recover now don't you? Love that shot of the boys by the tree...such cuties!! Brian had a similar face in trying to get the toys out. They definitely won't get away, that's for sure LOL!

My Goodness said...

Looks like fun!!

And the toy packaging...that's the worst part! Ridiculous!

Maggie said...

Whew! Looking at all that fun makes me glad that the holidays only come once a year!

Golightly said...

Wow, it looks like a great Christmas for everyone! But the children's toy packaging...what up with that!?!

Looks like a great Christmas!
Will has three of those ride on toys like Matty got for Christmas... the firetruck, a bus, and an airplane. How can one little boy ride all of those? Matt's going to love his new firetruck.
