almost all was merry and bright

christmas day didn't go exactly as planned...but i try not to really make hard and fast plans anymore. there's less disappointment that way. :) there was a bit too much excitement and i'm not sure how well miss leah slept, so she was back in bed, fully dressed by 9:30am. at least the tantrum was leah's this year, not mine. 

after we were entirely spoiled by grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends, we spent mid-morning gorging ourselves with eggs, hashbrowns, fruit, sausage, juice and scones with the smiths and mcphies then headed back home for afternoon naps. 

that evening, both families joined us at our house for the best {and biggest} crab legs. ever. 

ryan even had to purchase a 32 oz. pot to steam them in. and with that purchase, he lost the right to ever say anything about me purchasing items that "take up too much space."
we played some games and entertained the kids with iPad apps and movies. 

i think we even got jackers to smile? maybe once. 

the night ended with leah barfing all over herself, her jammies and her sheets and blankets. i think it was just a bit too much food {more than one person admitted to feeding her as she strolled by - she's kind of a mooch} and too much excitement. 
but overall, a very merry and blessed day.
