Christmas Day

Christmas Morning we leisurely spent at home.  The advantage to being multicultural is that you receive a visit from the Christkind AND Santa Claus :)  Santa Claus knew that Blaise would enjoy his own play kitchen since he likes to mimic Daddy.  My mom stocked the kitchen with new finds as well as many of my old supplies.  Keeping with Scofield Santa tradition, we didn't wrap these presents.  It is easier for us and we use less wrapping paper this way!

I liked this shot of Kate - so happy!

Blaise immediately started creating his menu

We spent the evening at Jan's mom's where Blaise was once again happy to unwrap more gifts.

Lego Duplo was a big hit this year

Christmas Eve

The six of us celebrated Christmas Eve at home with our friends Jörg, Kathy and Christian - with their baby Simon.  It was a relaxing evening filled with fun, laughter, good food and presents.  We visited a children's Mass in the afternoon which was perfectly timed for Blaise.  The start of the evening brought a visit from the Christkind.  Blaise was playing in his room with Grandma, Grandpa and Jörg and the Christkind rang her bell indicating she had delivered her packages and was on her way.  Then we had a lovely dinner and sent Blaise to bed after the first course.  The babies played along for awhile, but they added life to the party ;)  

Jörg brought a book for Blaise

He heard the bell!

He's coming!

What was that? (I love the adults peeking around the corner!)


Now he is getting into it!

A puppy puppet!
