Merry Christmas lovelies, we had a pretty good one over here in Cotati! I have bronchitis so I wasn’t allowed to give any of my munchkins kisses so that kind of made it no fun. Buttt we had a great dinner and a lot of laughs together. My grandma made raviolis with her special pasta sauce and baked a ham. I don’t know what I will ever do without her cooking someday, maybe I should do some posts on her recipes. Anyway last night we had Christmas Eve with the Tillery side and I made crab dip for my Pappa since he’s addicted to it. I should probably show you how to make that too! Is there anything more special than watching the joy of babies opening presents? I’m not sure that there is. Every day that I am with my little ones is better than any other, watching them grow and bud into their own little personalities. I spent most of Christmas Day sitting with my aunt Lic on the couch since she is pregnant and about ready to pop she can’t do much else. On January 16th we will have another princess to add to the Gantenbrat pack and I can hardly contain my excitement. Poor Grady is the only boy out of all seven of us. I’m sure when he’s older we will all intimidate whatever girls he brings home. We had some good talks about everything going on lately and I have to say I am the luckiest girl in the world to have such a wonderful family that I can talk to about anything.
Here they are waiting to be unleashed on their presents
Lily says she did her “fancy move” can you guess which one she is?
Grady went through my phone and when he got to this one he looked up at me and announced, “Now that’s a good one” so how could it not be my favorite?
This was my Christmas morning before we drove to Cotati. I’m not sure who I prefer more cuddling puppies or squealing munchkins.
