Christmas Day 2011

It was a magical holiday season at the Moen house, filled with lots of "firsts."  It was our first Christmas in T-town and as a family of 4, baby Harper's very first Christmas and the first time E experienced Santa.  Grandma K and Sadie drove down to spend Christmas with us.  We made sugar cookies and chex-mix, had chili and hot dogs for dinner Christmas Eve (a Wedman tradition), monkey bread for breakfast (a Diggs tradition) on Christmas day and a big turkey dinner the day after Christmas (we were too stuffed to eat it the day before).  We listened to Christmas music, watched movies, played with new toys and didn't leave the house for two days!

The family tradition of decorating cookies on Christmas Eve continues with E in his apron and very first time helping (the cookies were even dairy-free so all of us could enjoy them!).

We listened to The Night Before Christmas (recorded by GG and Grandma Wanda) on Christmas Eve.

Santa came with LOTS of presents for our good little boy and girl.

Stocking Christmas morning!

H opening her very first present, all by herself.

E opened all the presents by himself (even some of Harper's) and when he was finished asked for more!

Newton among the inevitable mess of Christmas morning (my favorite part!). 

Our Happy Harper loving her very first Christmas! 
E showing Grandma K his awesome iPad skills (of course).

It was beautiful Christmas Eve, so all of us (dogs too) decided to get a little exercise at the Arboretum.  It rained non-stop the next two days, to glad we got out while we could!
