What a wonderful week full of family! Friday night we had our annual gift-giving and nom-eating celebration with cousins BB&E – usually this occurs on Christmas eve, but they were going to be out of town this year so we did it early. Over the weekend, we had a couple of visits from cousin Jenna and her moms, and Aunti Staci brought BabyBug’s 94-year-old great-grandpa to visit. During the week, Grandma Bill & Grandma Barbie came to visit, and then Aunti Staci came back with friends. Gran came over to visit a few times, and BabyBug hung out with Uncle Ralph too.
As we do every year, we spent Christmas day with Mandy’s brother and his family, since they celebrate Christmas. BabyBug was chipper this morning (until her bath), but she fell asleep in the car and then slept through most of the day. We kept checking on her to see if she’d wake up and visit, but she was determined to get her beauty sleep! She finally woke up a little after 4PM and had some nice snuggle time with her Uncle Bry & Auntie Co. It was a lovely day!
And now, what you’ve been waiting for… pictures!
Oh, we are dainty!
“Heehee, Grandpa Bill, you got a toy on your chin!”
Does it make me a terrible person if I am thoroughly amused by this? Sleeve ears!!!
Somebody was super cheerful this morning!
“Did you say bath?”
“Oh gosh. There’s a dress coming, isn’t there?”
“I KNEW IT!”
“Oh, hey, this isn’t so bad!”
“Actually, it’s kind of tasty!”
“But that doesn’t stop me from giving you a CrankyBug face just for the heck of it! AYE!”
Asleep with our dollies.
Awake with our dollies.
Posing in cousin Sasha’s sparkle-chair – ahem, the Empress’s throne.
“Hi, this is my SRSLY? face!”
“Mmmmm, it tastes like red!”
Somebody did not get the “say cheeeeese” memo.
“Hmm. Dress. Interesting.”
“I’m just gonna chill here and play with my dress, k guys?”
“Oh, were you trying to take a picture?”

Bigger family picture!
“GUYYYYYSSSSSS, ENOUGH PICTURES!”
Taking the hint, I began to photograph the cat.
It’s not Christmas at Bry & Co’s if I don’t get a photo of Kushka under the tree!
And this, this one is for me.
