It's the most wonderful time of the year!

This Christmas was by far our best Christmas yet! Even though the babies did not quite understand everything that was going on and actually slept through Christmas morning while we opened their presents, it was special nonetheless. Seeing Ashton and Mary Seegars's sweet faces in the morning and spending the day snuggling them was definitely the best present I received this year. Gash said it perfectly about a month ago when we were decorating for Christmas and getting in the Christmas spirit. He explained that when he was young, he thought Christmas would really stink as an adult because you don't get as many presents. However, he said he now realizes that Christmas as an adult is even better because you get to share it with your favorite people in the world, your kids. We have only had a small taste of that, so bring on Christmas 2013 where we will be chasing two babies around the house and diving knee deep into a torn wrapping paper mess Christmas morning!

The babies first trip to meet Santa. . . they were not that impressed :)

We stopped by PREG to put Ashton and Mary Seegars's ornaments on their tree of miracles!

The twins first Christmas with the Bindewald Bunch!

Claire is the best little babysitter and the babies could not get enough of her!

We loved seeing Mel again!

Kyle stopped by to meet the babies and then we headed to an engagement party celebrating Lyndsey and John; it was great seeing the ol' St. Pius crowd!

We went to Christmas Eve Mass at Christ the King, it was so special taking the babies to the church where we got married.

How things have changed in five years . . . . 

Christmas Eve was at mom and dad's this year which turned out to be a lot of fun!

Bammie read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. . . . 

The babies got in lots of snuggles . . . 

So stinking cute in their sock monkey hats, made especially for them by their Aunt Debbie!!

My precious Goddaughter, Brooklyn!

We may not have been at Bammie's house, but that did not stop us from caroling!

Ashton joined in on the fun while Mary Seegars took a nap.

Bammie even rode in style in her decorated golf cart (and our cooler carrier).

The Marsh babies and the Clayton babies!

I love this boy more than a fat kid loves cake!

Christmas morning with Mommie May and Pops was so much fun!

Even if the babies slept through most of the excitement . . . 

After breakfast, we traveled back to Greenville and the Claytons came to celebrate Christmas at our house!

Kisses from his Kimmy!

We love Aunt Katie!

You mean to tell me I have the same name as these two?????

Merry Christmas from the Claytons!
