Christmas Eve at the kids

Kristen and Chris had the whole family over for sandwiches, potato salad etc. on Christmas Eve. Leighton was wearing the onesie that Papa picked out for her and the boys were dressed in cute Christmas tee shirts. We bought them corduroy pants and sweater sets but the temps were in the mid 70s to mid 80s the entire two days.
The boys are climbing everywhere and believe the couch to be their Mt. Everest and laugh with glee when they conquer the summit. This is one reason the kids er ah Santa decided to bring them their new two story fort complete with stairs and a slide. Kristen showed us videos of them discovering it on Christmas morning and they are so much fun.
Santa's sleigh was pretty full for the short trip from our house to Kristen and Chris'.

The little guys had more fun taking the ornaments off the tree and handing them out as gifts to all of us. Kristen is not going to work too hard to get the rest of the tree down! lol Oh, and they loved the 31 storage bags I got each of the kids for their cars...and the little guys loved them too!
It really only took the three men about 40 min. to assemble the fort with supervision from Leighton, of course.
and speaking of her royal highness, the kids got her this darling chair for her room...doesn't she look downright regal?
Tomorrow I'll try to get up some of the pics from our Christmas day at our house. Hope your holidays were great.
