Hey! Have you seen these toilets? They’re ginormous!

Well guess what. Santa came last night and Claire got her Christmas wish.

Smiling is my favorite.

That’s right. A hockey helmet with a mask. I swear, any person who was willing to listen to the kid heard her loud and clear. There was no mistake. Hockey helmet with a mask.

To see the joy on her face at 7:30 this morning was well worth hearing her tell every soul on creation her holiday wish.


Maelie got a bunch of random stuff.

Oh but they made her so very happy.

So did the blue plastic bag that somehow got mixed in with the mess of wrapping paper.

And her favorite gift was a box. But not just any box…


For the record I got an ice cream maker, a new printer, a router that WORKS, and this:

That’s right. It’s a gnome. His name is still pending, though we’ve had full length conversations already.

We ate segregated English muffins, to which Ben said, “I’m uncomfortable.”

We played AWESOME games.

Then we played Mario Kart on the Wii while Carly put together an annoyingly difficult toy that SHE bought for Luca. It only makes sense that she would build such a toy. With Gorilla Glue.

And then I checked out my new yoga mat and iPhone cover. (It’s a checklist!)

But my greatest gifts were seeing Claire use her imagination to the fullest,

Watching Luca smile big knowing he was going to see his Grandma and Papa,

Seeing Miss Mae enjoy her very first Christmas,

And fully annoying my husband,

Then I forgot to buy chicken to make for dinner tonight, so we had fantastic potatoes and fish sticks.

Have a very merry J Lo Christmas.

  1. Looks like the chilluns did pretty well. What does Claire think she’s going to do with her helmet and mask? Tease Luca without risk of getting smacked?

    Love the Jack box picture. I’m sure there’s something funny to say about it but it escapes me now.

    I have the Pens Gnome too, but I hadn’t thought about naming him. Perhaps that’s what’s been keeping the Pens from the Cup finals for the last 2 years.

  2. Your kids are so cute. I especially love Sadie dog hanging out in the background of that video.

    So glad to hear your Christmas was magical. The five of you deserve it.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. I’m glad you had a great Christmas! Maelie is too precious~!

  4. Looks like a great Christmas. My dog enjoyed balled up wrapping paper more than anything else.

    Did you take the picture of your car in a mirror or do you live in England?

  5. Is it just the way the picture looks or is the steering wheel really on the opposite side? lol

    It is super cute that Claire wanted that helmet for Christmas! And even sweeter that she actually got it! Hooray for getting her the best gift ever! Glad you guys had such a great Christmas! 🙂

  6. Awww what great pics! Merry Christmas!!

  7. Holy shit your steering wheel is on the wrong side of your car!
