Christmas Eve – Part II

Brian and I had Noche Buena at mom and dad’s house in Derby on the evening of Christmas Eve. As always, mom got a little carried away on the cooking. She had more food than people. LOL.

I’m not sure why we had ham, but we did. LOL.

I’m not sure anyone had any of the chicken because mom put it in the oven to keep it warm and promptly forgot about it. LOL.

Dad was already playing with the JVC Adixxion HD video camera that Jenni got him for Christmas. Leave it up to dad to rig a mount on his baseball cap so he can film his RC planes and helicopters hands-free while he’s flying them.

The mayhem that ensues when the Cannady kids arrive is always a highlight of Christmas Eve at the Alonso household.

Here’s a picture of the boys opening our gift for them.

Brian and I had a big box so we wrapped all three presents individually and then placed them all in the big box and then wrapped the big box also.

Me and Eli

I know I’m not supposed to play favorites, but Eli is the sweetest of the three boys.

Here he is playing with the new dry-erase/magnetic chalkboard that we got him for Christmas. I think he likes it.

He actually ran the battery dead that very night.

Logan got a new RC plane so he can start flying with dad.

It’s mayhem alright.

It was great to see the Cannadys on Christmas Eve. Mom sent a bunch of leftovers home with us along with our new stainless steel pots and pans which really made Brian’s day. Thanks for another wonderful Noche Buena. Until next year!
