The boys are CRAZY into Skylanders!  The individual character can join the video games via a “portal”.  The boys were just starting their collection and had LOADS of Skylanders they hoped to get for Christmas.  At $10-$20 each, there is no way I would have been able to get them all they wanted without eBay!!  Purchased a few “lots” and instantly became the best mom ever! lol

Diesel’s turn to be the ham! lol

Korbin’s grin is amazing, but that “YES!” from Ethan in the background is PRICELESS!ChristmasMorning_2014_24 ChristmasMorning_2014_25
Serenity was getting some tummy rubs when Diesel plowed his big fat head in to make sure he got some snuggles too!

Ok, so I have been wanting a “GoPro” camera FOREVER!  Every Birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day, etc. I drop hints.  This year, Miguel dropped loads of his own hints.  He said that we were not in the financial position to spend $500 on another camera and that it was not a priority, etc. He had secretly been squirting away money! I TOTALLY did not expect to see this AT ALL!!  EPIC Victory for Miguel!!  You did AWESOME!!  And you TOTALLY GOT ME!!!  I CANNOT WAIT to get one of the dogs coming at the sleeve with this on!  Or doing arial acrobatics after a ball with the GoPro attached to them!  I am SOOOOO STOKED to start using this camera!  (as soon as I figure out how it works…)

So, we were supposed to be buying a toy for a friend’s child for Christmas and Miguel found this little Dragon that when you squeeze the handle, he extends his head and tries to ‘bite’ someone/something.  Miguel insisted on getting this for our friend’s child and then spend the rest of the time at the mall walking around “attacking” random strangers 😉  He had so much fun with it that I had to go back and buy another one!  As soon as the boys opened it, Miguel was on his feet happy to “demonstrate” the dragon for them! LOL  Love my great big grown up baby boy!
ChristmasMorning_2014_29
The Lego Movie was, without a doubt, Miguel and the kids favorite Movie this year.  They have watched it OVER and OVER and Miguel LOVES to walk around the house going, “Honey, where are my pants?” (not such a funny quote if you have not seen the movie! LOL but have no fear, he has his pants on when he asks the question!) So I found these online for the boys and I think Ethan approved!

Besides being cat obsessed, Liliana also LOOOOOOVES comics with Harley Quin, Gambit and Rogue as her favorites!

Vera asked me if it was strange that her dogs had their own gift bags.  I told her she was asking the WRONG person! LOL  Our pets have their OWN TREE (in the nursery!) and get their own present unwrapping session as soon as the hairless 2-legged kids finished theirs!

The ones that REALLY tore into the gifts the way they were meant to be were the puppies!!  Geneva and Ava’s pups had a BLAST!!  I do not know who had more fun- the puppies or us watching them!

The kitties got 2 new cat condo tree houses (we got to Custom order them JUST how we wanted at the pet expo we went to this summer!!  The kids had so much fun deciding exactly what they wanted!!  Everything is made right here in the USA and is made out of strong, solid, hard wood!  The gentleman that was the representative for the products climbed all over them to demonstrate how strong they were and how much weight they would support! We were obviously very impressed!  And since my kids and my Rotties CLEARLY missed the memo that these were for the cats 😉 lol  I am very glad to know how well made they are!
