Christmas Eve + Christmas Day

As is Tradition in the Hamm family we always get together on Christmas Eve to eat and exchange presents. When my Grandma, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Brother, Nieces and Nephews get together it’s a little crazy time but always a good time. This year we celebrated at my uncle’s new house. We ate lasagna and lots of cookies. With 10 kids under the age of 13, opening presents is chaos but exciting to watch. All the kids ran around and had a great time. Jude tried his hardest to keep up with the big kids. Needless to say he slept great! The adults drank eggnog, told dirty jokes and chased the little ones around.

After putting Jude to bed we set up the stockings.

Christmas morning we stayed home just the three of us. We opened our stockings. Ate a breakfast of bananas, cinnamon rolls, orange juice and coffee. Then opened all of our fun presents from Santa and each other.

Stocking Fun

Santa knows how to bring it!



Mr. Potato Head proved to be buckets of fun as advertised.

Dad capturing the memories

After presents Grandma and Boogie came over to with a few more gifts then we ate lunch at the Chinese buffet.  Jude got some great gifts. I’m proud to say that most of his gifts from mom, dad and Santa were either purchase on super clearance, with coupons or won on blog contests!
