And to all a good night!

We're in full swing enjoying our Christmas visitors and it would appear they are enjoying themselves as well.  Uncle Matt, Amma and Papa arrived ready for rough housing:


 The kids showed uncle Matt they know exactly what a cell phone is for.  Catherine took some pictures and Matthew was playing a "monster game".
 We took a chance over the weekend to Skype with Uncle Ed and open presents.  The kiddos have been enamored with their art jar:

 And unfortunately Sky enjoyed about half of our gifts before we could open him.  Luckily way back during one of James and I's first Valentine's days together we learned the hard way that according to poison control, a dog Sky's size could eat a few pounds of milk chocolate before we had to really worry.  We are bummed that we missed out on some delicious looking chocolate though.  Our friends also dropped by a super awesome gift last weekend that ended up on top of our tree:

Christmas Eve we got a nice little snow storm.  Sky was not amused.

 And we made another round of fudge and peanut brittle which Catherine helped taste test.

 On Christmas Eve we had a wonderful evening of delicious appetizers with our neighbors.  Then we came home to open a few Christmas Eve presents:
At first Catherine was not impressed:
 Then she was ready to show off her new PJs from Amma and Papa!
 What a difference a year makes!  New PJs in 2011 (for Catherine which finally fit this year!):
And lots of hair for little Miss Catherine this year!

And a new board game!  While I don't think it was ever a Pozun tradition (I think one or two years we got a special gift from our aunt that we would open early) I always wished it were so we opened a new game on Christmas Eve to play as a family . . .
 well kinda.  It's only a four player game
 So Papa read to Catherine instead:
 While Matthew "bam bam bammed" his pieces all the way to the candy palace:

 Then we got ready for Santa.  Matthew decided Santa would like Candy Canes and fudge.  He also really wanted to show santa his rock so we left that out as well.  I still don't think Matthew "gets" the idea of letters, but this was a far better attempt at taking toddler dictation than our Alaska postcards:
We've since had a great Christmas day of presents, food and family, sledding, skiing and more to share soon!
