Christmas 2013

Christmas 2013 brought an unexpected death in the family, a trip to the urgent room in ugly Christmas sweaters,  bitter cold temps, an overtired two year old and a visibly spoiled rotten four year old
I'm still recovering.

That said, it was still the most wonderful time of the year......

Our 2013 Christmas pictures:

Helping with Christmas cookies. She believes in the two for me, one for the cookies rule of baking.
Christmas Crafting. Which apparently is best done without clothes.
Santa was a new outdoor decoration this year. Unfortunately, he was unprepared for this Minnesota winter and opted out of inflating after the third snowstorm and eight day below zero. A tactic I plan on trying myself next winter.
Our annual trip to the Holidazzle parade. Mila's sweater was purchased at Savers while I was shopping for an ugly Christmas sweater for myself. Clearly she was not impressed. Tyson insisted on sweater/tie combo.

Making out with baby Jesus at Brother's Christmas pageant.

Staged moment of sweetness.

It was 10 below and those are (somewhat) forced smiles, but I can officially cross skating on a frozen lake off of my bucket list. 

Two marshmallows in a pod. 

Proof of the over-tired two year old.

One more forced moment of sweetness for good measure.

As dictated by the four year old.

Go, Jesus. It's your birthday. We're gonna party like it's your birthday.

Our only family picture this Christmas. Also, the outfits we donned to the Urgent room during Mila's allergic reaction. The Doctors have determined that she has a tree nut allergy, but I'm not yet convinced that she isn't also allergic to how ugly our sweaters were.

Hope your Christmases were just as jolly!
