Random Christmas

We had Brian's family over on Christmas Eve to celebrate Christmas with his family.  It was pretty chaotic opening presents with 2 six year olds, 1 four year old, 2 one year olds and a baby so I didn't get many pictures.  I did get one of Noah opening his presents from Grandma and Grandpa Weidner where Grandpa wrapped the presents.  Take a look at the box by Noah.
It got kind of late and crazy at the end for N2 so I got out some Christmas books and Brian read a little to N2 and Chloe.  Nothing says Christmas like a pirate eye patch, right?
Here are some pictures of my kids enjoying their Christmas presents (note how Natalie is wearing her footies).  You can see in the first picture Natalie's slippers.  Both kids got slippers where the opening to insert your foot is actually the mouth of the animal so that it looks like the animal is eating your leg.  Natalie got lions and Noah got bears.  They love these slippers and find them very funny.

For St. Nicholas day, they got lots of minion things including these hats (which were supposed to be in their stockings from Santa, sigh.  Santa has to share with St. Nicholas).  They wore these hats every day before they got monster hats on Christmas Eve and now they wear their monster hats.
 When we were setting up the Christmas tree Noah thought the tree skirt should be a cape.
And finally just some random pictures.  Both kids have really improved in their reading and I wanted to get a picture of them reading to someone.  You can see in this picture why Natalie needed new footies. :)
Natalie lost a top tooth before Christmas and it has been really cute because she lisps a little without that tooth.  It's too bad that the new one is going to grow in before she loses the second one :(  She got a dollar coin and it happened to be on the same day that Peanut drew on their faces which TOTALLY did not work because it all wore off while they were sleeping and they couldn't find anything in the mirror when they got up.  I woke up when they were still in the bathroom and Noah said "this is boring, nothing is there."  Peanut had left them a message to look in the mirror.  I could see the faint lines on Natalie's face so I pointed those out and then asked if I should draw over the lines that Peanut drew.  So this is a replica of what it should have looked like.  There was not face paint crayon on their sheets or pillows though so that is good.  Maybe next year Peanut should try eyeliner.
