Christmas at Grandma and Pa’s came a few days early to eliminate some of the confusion of running around to so many houses. Wyatt got a big wheel tricycle.
My amazing SIL Amanda made this string art Georgia sign for me on old barn wood.
Lasagna assembly line at my parents’ house on Christmas Eve.
Christmas Eve parties are a family tradition at the Mastrario house. We always love to have a house full of company.
Wyatt got his very own recliner for Christmas. We tried to scale back and only buy a few gifts for him. We don’t have much room and he is already spoiled rotten so we only bought him four or five other gifts. By the time he got to the third one, he wanted to stop opening presents and start playing with them. We didn’t feel so bad that we didn’t go all out then.
We had Christmas lunch at Papa Theron and Granny Whilden’s house with a lot of the Cook family.
Wyatt got a pedal fire truck from Mimi and Pop.
David got his big welcome into the family. A few months back he heckled me about the tapestry cat vest I had in elementary school so I got him one of his very own. He was a good sport and wore it while opening the rest of his presents. It is trial by fire to get into this family!
Justin found a 1963 Polaroid Land Camera for Sami at an estate sale that we thought would be perfect for her. We even bought film for it but we couldn’t get it to work. Justin said he’d work on it to figure it out.
Wyatt and Liam got to spend the rest of the afternoon playing with their new toys.
While it isn’t high fashion decorating, I love our new gifts up on our mantle. The sign is from Amanda and the photo is one Sami took of us and had framed for us for Christmas. I think it’s just fabulous!
