Our Christmases 2013

It's been a great Christmas season for the Kubeczka's this year...very full, but also very fun! We started Christmas Eve at my in-law's house...
It was awesome watching the kids tear into their gifts...Adalynn really got into her gifts!! LOL

The cutest time was watching the big girls primp her and play with her little light up vanity set!

This was a favorite gift for us...it's a tile with custom lettering my MIL had made for us.

We had a lot of outtakes for this shot...LOL...I thought about posting them all just for the laugh!

Christmas Day Emma was the first one up - Aaron actually got up earlier, but just moved from his bed to ours & went back to sleep! Later Emma woke us up to let us know that Santa had paid us a visit!
Speaking of Santa - does he wrap gifts he brings to your house?? Santa doesn't wrap the gifts he leaves at our house, only the gifts from Mommy & Daddy - just curious what everyone else does.

Means they get to play with Santa gifts without waiting on us to take them out of the box or put them together if needed...but they also end of with a pile of wrapping paper to get buried in! LOL

Geddo & Teta (my parents) always come over Christmas day for lunch, too!

That afternoon we had our 3rd family gathering at Michael's grandparents' house...three Christmases in two days and we weren't done yet!
My family is big...big! So our get together with the entire family is usually one weekend after Christmas - so yesterday we headed to East Texas. We were missing quite a few folks yesterday, but managed to get a good family shot with those who made it. The last time we got a good family shot was Thanksgiving three years ago (with around 50 people, yesterday we had 37) - it was long overdue!

We had a bonfire, too and Aaron helped with the firewood!

The kids had fun exploring with their Aunt Donna!

Geddo & Teta went exploring through the woods with us, too!! CUTE!

This is my mommy & one of my sisters...

and mommy and all her kids...
This was my Grannie's 99th Christmas...and she is still living in her own house all by herself! My sister's MIL (left) does stay with her a few nights a week and my brother lives about 300 feet away from her, but technically she does still live on her own! Count your blessings!!

We had a wonderful Christmas season with our family - hope you did, too! I have the next week off to get our house back in order...but I'll also be helping my parents with their move and we have dentist appointments to get to this week. It'll be nice to be away from work for a bit, but it won't be a staycation by any means!

 I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas - can't wait to see what the New Year has in store for us all!

Looks like you had a very busy and wonderful Christmas! Such fun pictures :)
When it comes to Santa presents we usually wrap them with a special wrapping paper (that we hide so the kids don't know about it) and use different labels/handwriting.

I'm so glad you had a great Christmas! Love the pictures and love your huge family. That's how my family is, too!
As for your question, all gifts for the kids on Christmas morning are from Santa and they are wrapped!
