Christmas Eve 2009

Here is how we spent our very special Christmas Eve day...

First, we enjoyed an afternoon family pool party. Zeke took the picture of us while we relaxed in the pool. We got some sun (Zeke got some shade) and we all had a great time.
(Zeke is holding up a #1 for his 1st Christmas)


After we all dried off and got cleaned up, we enjoyed pizza for dinner and got ready to open gifts for Zeke's very first Christmas.

Ruby was on her best behavior because she got a giant bone.



We had a fantastic time opening gifts. Zeke was extremely excited to get his own guitar. After so many months of helping his dad, Zeke can finally jam along on his own guitar.



After Tom opened his new cowboy boots, he rushed off to his closet to put the entire ensemble together.


Tom and Zeke gave me 3 great new outfits- a little something for everything! A workout outfit, a special Honduras jersey to cheer on our team, and a cute black top to go with my 2 new pairs of jeans. I'm a lucky mom!

Zeke conked out before he could finish opening all of his gifts. Much more fun is to be had tomorrow.

Merry Christmas!
Love,
Tom, Karine, Ezekiel, and Ruby the dog

Hey Leonel, Merry Christmas!

Glad you like our blog. We're just like Jon and Kate except we only have one kid and we are nice to each other.

Thanks for your comment, it made Karine's night.
