look at these happy faces!
the bean was tasked with bringing the stockings into the living room, which she did happily. molly was the first to dig into hers.
with a little help from the teen, she found the gigantic treat that was waiting for her inside, pulled it right out of the package and scampered off with her prize. it was really funny.
the girls tore into their presents with glee.
and i guess i was a really good girl this year, because:
by the time we were done with that little experiment, the beats were ready for go time. after we turned them on and played with them a little:
i threw on some running gear and headed out for a quick test run.
by the time i got back home and cleaned up, it was time to help brother wan with a little outing he had planned for his girlfriend. as one of her christmas gifts, he'd made an appointment for them with the photographer who'd just done our annual family shoot, and while they did this:
the hub and i goofed around and did stuff like this.
when we returned home from that little outing, they had an announcement that made the bean really happy. "can i call you auntie right now?" she asked. it was really cute.
a few hours later, we pulled this out of the oven.
i'm kind of drooling just looking at my plate from that night. oh, so good.
the bean and MIL worked on what she called "jesus' birthday cake" using her easy-bake oven.
and then she modeled her new nightgown.
it'd been a long, fun, exciting day and we were all tired. but first...
i mean, is any day complete without at least one selfie? i think not.
