St Nick's 2008

That weekend of the Breakfast with Santa was a busy one. The morning prior was St. Nick's, and as is often the case our friend Chris stayed over with her kids.

As usual my parent's supplemented our goodies with scads of trinkets they bought for the kids. Unlike some other grandparent's I know they never seek credit for such things, preferring the kids to retain the illusion of the Easter Bunny or Santa or whoever. I think that's cool.

We'd also been surprised - genuinely so - by a huge stocking of goodies left on our door by 'St. Nick' aka a family from school we count as friends.

Lisa tried to have the kids go to bed in matching pajama's, or pajama's at all, because she knew I'd be snapping pictures and was 'tired of seeing half-naked babies on your blog'.

Oops.

Listen, those kids went to bed super-late because of the sleepover and then got up at the [bleep] of dawn. They look like rough? Tough Judgemental Future YaYa and LuLu - you should have let us sleep in and purty ya up.

On to the show:

Sorry about the red-eye on these next few. I don't know why Photobucket doesn't seem to accept and save edits. Sigh.

A very nice morning, and very relaxing.

That's cute. :)

Looks like a good time! If I haven't said so before, your children are darn cute, red-eye and all.

Looks like great fun at St. Nicks, sugar daddy and all

I'm not sure about the statement "unlike some other grandparents" I think your grandparents are cool as to their giving and asking for nothing in return...

Love
