What a wonderful (and chaotic) Rau family Christmas. I only got pictures from Christmas day with my family because there was just so much going on. It truly is more fun to celebrate Christmas with little ones. I was so excited for all the gifts I had to give and couldn't wait to watch the kids on Christmas morning. There are a ton of pictures in this post, but the kids were too cute not to capture again and again.

Looks like somebody isn't a fan of the pictures

Me and Tommy on Christmas morningI had a great time making an alphabet book for the younger kids. I collected pictures of them and compiled them from A-Z so they could learn words while looking at their cousins.

Trey was in Heaven. It is 48 hours later and I am not sure he has taken them off yet.It was a 50 degree Christmas Day. Dane LOVES the outdoors and insisted he get the chance to get outside and play. He ran and ran around his Memaws yard until it was dinner time.
