Christmas Day 2011

After our morning at home opening gifts then having breakfast, we headed to MD.

Chaos, fun, family and food...nothing else can describe it.
  I got a look from Luke like this because...
 I told them to stop doing this...wrestling...
Finish it off with birthday cakes for Jesus (made by Grammy)!

Christmas Morning

No sleeping in at this house...not even waiting for the sun to rise.  Up and ready at 6:30, breakfast in the oven and boys ready to start Christmas day.

The big gift this year...Ipod Touch (I spent a little time setting them up and downloading games), they were thrilled!

They also purchased gifts for each other (with gift cards they got for their birthdays).

Christmas Eve 2011

I think we now have a tradition...Christmas Eve with Jeremy's family.  We have been able to all be together for several Christmas Eves in a row...which makes it a tradition now, right?
We sing and celebrate.  The boys love being with their cousins. 

This year a special gift for their Great-Grandma Sommerfeld.

And of course Aunt Janine (who seems to be helping with a lot of the pictures to get the boys to smile...which means they get too silly. can you tell?) with Great Grandpa and Grandma Jenkins.

And of course some sweet Brayden moments.

Carter's Duck

Christmas Eve morning.  Jeremy, Carter and Luke (along with more guys) went on a hunt for birds.
Carter shot his first duck.  He was thrilled (and he continues to tell the story).

Luke was there to make it fun.  Adding the final picture of the the ducks kissing.

Later that night, the duck was grilled as part of Christmas Eve dinner...

Zoo Lights

Headed downtown to the National Zoo for Zoo Lights
The Zoo is covered in Christmas lights, filled with goodies and the animals.

Free bags, glows necklaces, cokes, etc.  See the animals, gingerbread houses, watch the Christmas Lights show with music, a dancing panda in a snow globe, train ride around the tigers and lions.  Fun for all.

Christmas Time

A little Christmas before my brother and his wife head out of town.  Lots of food and chaos.
