Christmas Take 3

This weekend we got together to celebrate with some of Mike’s extended family The Riley’s!! They are really the nicest, kindest, people I have ever met. I kid Mike that I sometimes wish we were Riley’s instead of Murphy’s…;) Well I shouldn’t say that, I am proud to be Mrs. Michael Murphy…I swear he was adopted!

Anyway, we had a fabulous time! Good food & wine and GREAT company. I estimate that there were 16 children ages 6 weeks to 15. So much fun to see all the kids together! Needless to say Kathryn and Patrick had a fabulous time, as did Mike and I.

Christmas Morning

Christmas morning with two little ones is MAGICAL!  I had so much fun seeing all the excitement when they entered the living room.  Kathryn and Patrick are still very young, so they don’t really understand the whole concept of Santa.  However, we are having fun setting the traditions! 

Santa left the kids a nice letter, and lots and lots of presents. It was so much fun watching the squeal in delight!

Some of the favorites were:

  • Play kitchen
  • Fold Up Couch
  • Puzzles
  • Tool Set
  • Play Phones
  • Mr. Potato head accessories
  • Magna Doodle
  • Trucks and Cars LOTS!
