Grahm didn't get to see his second cousins Emily and Andrew at Christmas, but they were sweet enough to ask Santa to send him a dancing Mickey- which has quickly become one of his favorite new toys. He loves breaking out his moves and getting down- here's a little peak Emily and Andrew!
It was almost a white Christmas... but turns out, it was the day after when a blizzard hit the east coast, dropping almost two feet of snow on Brooklyn. Thanks to our ever sensationalizing forecasters we heard the message loud and clear and set out to see our Massachusetts family before the first flakes even fell. We spent a few snowy days sledding in Nana and Papa's backyard, and warming up with plenty of hugs.
Cute little boys and homemade gingerbread trains are a winning combo as far as Santa is concerned -he left more under the tree than Grahm could ever have imagined. Buzz Lightyear, A fire truck and station, a train... the list goes on.
We spent the morning making our way through all the gifts, playing with each one before moving on to the next. When we were finally through, it was time to head out to Grandma's house for more presents!
Christmas eve was very different for us this year -we spent it at home! It was so nice to have Grandma, Aunt Amanda, Uncle Keith and Aunt Pat over to see our Christmas tree and to join us for dinner. Grahm did a great job entertaining (running, singing and xylophoning) while Momma and Daddy got dinner on the table (Prime Rib!). Dinner was only outdone by Grahm's home made dessert -a gingerbread choo-choo, and of course we saved some to leave out for Santa.
