What a wonderful life.

Connor was great with the Christmas tree all month, which was a huge relief for Crazy Christmas mommy. Christmas Eve was perfect; the weather was cold and rainy like winter and Christmas should be. That afternoon we had a wonderful surprise. One of Chris's clients sent us live lobsters to make for Christmas eve dinner. We had never cooked lobster before & it was kind of sad putting the live bugs in boiling water, BUT it was worth it.

Dad let Connor help with the mashed potatoes.
He loves all power tools.


We started a new Stone family tradition. We drove around looking at Christmas lights before Connor had to go to bed. He was so cute pointing out all the lights. It was so much fun seeing it through his eyes with such excitement.

Then after Connor went to bed Chris and I stayed up assembling Connor's train table and train set while watching Chevy Chases Christmas Vacation & drinking wine. It was perfect! Knowing this was the 1st of many Christmas Eves that we will be assembling toys was a wonderful feeling.

We spent Christmas morning playing trains with Connor in front of the fire and the Christmas tree. We had a wonderful french toast breakfast and eggnog lattes. It was truly a story book Christmas. Being a parent is such an amazing experience.

It was wonderful to have the Fallons join us for dinner. Ronda & I made a delicious dinner of orange balsamic cornish game hens, dressing, mashed potatoes and corn. Thank you Rachael Ray.
We let Connor and Samantha stay up until 9:30 playing and eating ice cream and cookies.

Sugar Rush.....


Merry Christmas Zuki!
