Here are a bunch of pics from our Christmas season this year.

Pete's work had their annual Christmas party at the Great American Ball park.  There was a nice dinner buffet, balloon animals, face painting, and ice cream in little plastic Reds baseball caps. :)

We went to Bass Pro Shop to visit Santa and play at the "North Pole".  A fun tradition!

On the 23rd we went to the Cincinnati museum center to see the holiday train display.

On Christmas Eve every year we go and see a nativity display.  It is set up in the front yard of a local funeral home.  It is one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time. :)  It was SO cold this year.  We didn't stay for too long.

Every Christmas Eve the kids open pjs from mom and dad.

 The kids are writing letters to Santa before bed.  Pete is helping Abby.

Christmas morning!  Lots of presents!!

 Lily was pleased with her toys in her stocking. :)

 One last pic with the presents before diving in.

 Jake couldn't wait to eat the orange that Santa left in his stocking.

 A mouth full of wrapping paper!

 Tow Mater tricycle!!

What a great Christmas we had this year.  Pete has this whole week off, so that has been especially awesome!
