Happy Kids for Christmas 2017

It was a beautiful Christmas day here in Austin TX.

This is how they smile when they get exactly what they want in the first present they open. They didn't have to open a dozen disappointing boxes of socks and slippers to strike gold. They were in much better and thankful moods when they did open boxes with clothing knowing their wishes had come true.

He didn't mind that he got two hoodies for Christmas 2017. He was a good sport back in 2016 when he received hoodie, after hoodie... until he had five (pic below from 2016)

Christmas 2017 will be remembered by me as the year we ate TOO MUCH! We had a series of Christmas dinners that seemed to flow from one straight into the next. 

I always left room for Grandma Schuster's Date Nut Pinwheel Cookies.
