merry christmas, happy boxing day and happy new year!

dressed in their sunday best for dinner at grandma sherrick's and christmas eve mass...




looking longingly at the presents they get to open that night...




enjoying family at grandma and grandpa sherrick's house...





goose with a goose (we are so hilarious)...



and (finally!) christmas morning!
pete sported his christmas onesie once again (one of the most important traditions in our house).
this year the kids thought it was extra funny for some reason...
(and i do not apologize for posting this stupid picture of pete, as he intentionally made that face as i was taking the picture... so that's what you get).



finn was ever-so-excited to finally place baby Jesus in the manger.  then the kids sang happy birthday to Jesus with a little cupcake to celebrate.  finn almost forgot that santa had come, as his excitement over having a cupcake in the morning was almost more than he could handle...



but santa did not disappoint, and the football field finn had been obsessing over was waiting there for him...



pete, being the absolutely hysterical person he is (he obviously cracks himself up) decided to wrap up some of his clean laundry the night before (as we were wrapping presents and doing laundry) and wrote on the tag "to dad, from dad."  jack picked it up and read the tag, with a super confused look on his face, and said, "i don't get it."  pete acted super excited as he opened it, saying things like, "my boxers!  i love these boxers!"  lucy giggled uncontrollably and jack just looked at pete with an expression that seemed to say, "you are such an idiot."





on to boxing day, which we celebrate with a big feast, poppers and party hats.  this year we had what jack deemed a boxing day miracle... our first chicken egg.





although a little blurry, i was there for it all as well...



seeing as i probably won't get around to much more blogging this week, i hope everyone has a wonderful new year's eve and a very happy new year!
