Christmas Puppy

The kids woke up Christmas morning to a strange noise coming from inside this package! At first they couldn't figure out where the noise was coming from.

Soon they discovered the package, and tore into it to find.....

A cute little Puppy!
The kids couldn't believe it! He is a Shitzu-Poodle mix and we named him Chewbaca or Chewy for short! And yes, the kids have matching Sponge-Bob jammies! Not the cutest, but they all loved them. Natalie did later mention that she wished she had princess jammies too!
The house has now been baby proofed, oh, I mean puppy proofed and we are working on potty training. Yes, I think we are a bit crazy! But the kids absolutely love him and so do I. He is a very good dog and has survived the week of being loved to death.

Christmas Eve #2

We spent Chrismas Eve at G&G Delahunty's this year. We had a fun time doing the yearly traditions: The Nativity, Bubble Gum Blowing Contest, and the Ice Cream Snowball.
Nate took home the trophy this year! Way to go Nate!

Grandpa and Natalie!

The Happy Angel Emma!

Three adorable lambs for the Nativity! One, not so happy.
Aunt Whitney and Natalie. When we got to Grandma's, Natalie was a little nervous about coming in to see everybody. I was busy carrying all the stuff in and saying Hi to everybody. Whitney kept asking me where Natalie was, and I knew she had gotten out of the car with us, and was probably running around somewhere. After about 20 minutes, Whitney asked me again where she was. We couldn't find her anywhere. We finally found her hiding in the back of our car. Thankfully aunt Whitney wanted to see Nat and she wasn't out there longer! Love you Aunt Whitney and can't wait to see you guys more often!

Nick and Ira. Two peas in a pod, both missing there two front teeth!

Natalie and Nori. Both a little grumpy and sat on this couch being grumpy together.

Nativity #1

We had Christmas Eve festivities a bit early this year with the Bradley family so we could celebrate the Delahunty fam on Christmas Eve. This is Luke, Houston, and Mckay- the three musketeers who frequently have discussions about who is the 'favorite' cousin.

This is Grandma and her beautiful Christmas Eve Table.

The girls!

The Nativity. Nick was excited this year to wear the new Roman Soldier Costume.
Natalie and Scarlett were the Angels.
Mckay was a Wiseman. A very cute wiseman I might add!

Baby Eli was the cutest baby Jesus and happy the whole time!
The three wisemen!

We went sledding up to the school. The kids loved it! I loved watching the boys help Natalie get on the sled and hold on tight to her as they went down the hill. Natalie is a lucky girl to have big brothers!
