Christmas Break: Papa's Birthday

A tradition that my family has had for years is to have a Christmas Party on December 23rd, my Papa's birthday. We started off the day with decorating Gingerbread houses. 

Richie and Landon working hard on their houses. 

We used our gingerbread houses as centerpieces for our dinner that night. 

My parents started a tradition when we were little to give us a new book each year. This year, we got The Christmas Train. 

Part of our tradition is to also have Santa come visit. He always brings us new pajamas or t-shirts. Check out my MOM'S BLOG to see all the funny shirts we got.

Richie and Santa

Claire loved her first experience with Santa. She immediately tried to rip off his beard and she waited a few minutes before crying. 

All the excitement of the day wore little Claire out.
