HOLIDAY 2015: Christmas + New Year's

i really didn't take a lot of photos which makes me sad
i seriously need to have a fool proof game plan for next year if i am going to survive

dim sum with my dad's side
these dudes are for real bffs

i really wanted to host christmas this year but i guess i should wait
i really want to have a photo booth set up to do fun things like this for everyone

the belonios | winter 2015

the kids all had a great time.  chloe had a random spat where it seemed like she was having an asthma attack/allergic reaction to something, but it passed thankfully!  we did presents at about 10-1030pm i think, i'm just throwing numbers out there.  the cousins usually do a secret santa, this year we decided to do the Beg Borrow Steal game (or whatever you call it) for the first time and it was so much fun.  i think we stumbled home and got kids in bed just after midnight.  who knows.  we stayed up late tidying a bit and getting the stockings ready and last minute unwrapped gifts finished.

Christmas Morning was an absolute haze
we were all tired as absolute hell, as you can sort of tell by everyone's slow gaze
the only thing that got me to jump-roll-stumble blindly out of bed was my mom guilt of missing christmas morning.  i hardly was able to hold my camera steady, i felt so burnt out, my eyes on fire and my head with an ice-pick jammed in the top.  a few crappy shots but shots nonetheless.

my poopoo's first christmas

momo trying to teach him how to open presents

our crazy keeled-over tree
some people really hate the kid tree but i love it, it's really the most festive kind of them all
Malcolm playing with his new finger-puppet book

i can't tell if he is just infatuated with the tactile nature and process of a book
or if he is in fact actually interested in books… well i guess maybe he is too young?  idk
anyway, he loves this book and it makes my heart melt because these finger puppet books were the kinds that Moses and Chloe really liked as well


we headed up the hill to the happeneys who were so kind as to host another party after the crazy fun adult-only Halloween party this passed Fall.  again i didn't really take a lot of photos.  i'm so tired that i really just want to enjoy myself, it's really just the guilt sometimes that pushes me to take them, knowing full well i am going to struggle to find time to go through them, edit and blog/post them.  

i had to get this one of Malx totally passed out

the kids lasted all night
we got home right at midnight and i quickly threw my tripod in front of the couch
for a few famjam pics to make up for my lousy party photographing


holiday shit wrapped up
i can move on with my life


really loved having the kids at home 
also really not looking forward to behavioural regressions and dramas

it's been subzero temperatures lately
and we went out to check out the frosty winter wonderland at the beach
post those guys tomorrow

HAPPY 2016
