Christmas 08 - The S/L/B/B Family Edition

(Read: the last names of my side of the family - those who were present for Christmas, that is.)

Christmas Eve with my family is a big dinner, a name exchange, Christmas carols, the reading of the Christmas story. And this year: dancing, bouncing, hyper children (including but not limited to my oldest son) and an unfortunate incident involving pants that were too big for said son.

That part was not captured on film. At least, not on mine.

(note Cory's favorite way to use a pacifier - bottom lip over bottom of said pacifier)

(I'm bummed that the sound on these videos is so bad! On the first one, Iain and Luke are yelling about falling down. On the second, Cory bangs a horn on a chair - the percussion to our caroling - and the piano accompaniment is by Iain. My little musical family!)

Christmas Day involves a breakfast or brunch, stockings, presents, games, naps...

p.s. Many of the pictures on this post were taken by Kelsey. Thanks Kels!

Aaaaaaaaaah! I am internet-shrieking at you because your boys are SO incredibly cute. And I haven't even gotten to see the videos yet...

Happy New Year, Brannons!

OK, so I saw the videos and I have to second Sid - your boys are adorable! I love the Christmas Carol one - the boys are so musical (maybe they partially "inherited" that from uncle Ryan and aunt Sidonie!) We miss you guys! Oh, I know! You should bring the boys on vacation to Germany to visit! We have a place for you to stay and everything!!! It'll be like old times, only European! ;) Tell Jeremy, Iain and Cory we say hello, and give the boys big hugs for us!
