It’s not a day, it’s a season, right? And we wrung every last bit of holly and ivy and mistletoe and ho ho ho out of the holiday. There was food. There was fun. There were animals of all varieties ruining our rugs. Here’s the photo wrap-up:
Gail was first to arrive. She, the CE and PG cleaned up nicely for our Elves Night Out dinner.
Our decorating elves, Julia, Grant and Becker joined us that evening. Many thanks to them for making our house festive again this year!
Don’t forget Henry! Here he poses with his Christmas portrait (photo credit Julia)
Kirk and Ian were among the sprightly elves that evening.
Daniel quickly cuddled up with the Shoo Bear after arriving home from NYC.
Tiny also flew in with his family, although he appears to have left his holiday cheer behind in NYC.
Thomas and Granny share a moment.
Victoria came bearing quiches and took home this little memento. Friends forever!
Breakfast of champions for Taylor.
“Can we just start opening presents finally?”
Thomas, Ang and James are all ready for 2016.

And this is the only photo I got of the boys together. Next year’s Christmas card?

And just when Chloe thought things might calm down, more cousins arrived!

Thomas, Angie and James squeeze in one last trip to the beach before heading back to the city.
Thanks to all for making Christmas 2015 merry and bright! xoxo
