Our first Christmas...

Marty got to experience the Ford's Christmas up in PA this year! We began our celebrations with a potluck and pollyanna party with my girlfriends from high school, and some of their fiances and husbands. As always, we had a blast catching up and acting silly :)

Christmas Eve, Eve, we always get together with my Aunt and Uncle and cousins. This year we played a mean match of bowling and enjoying dinner together afterwards...









On Christmas Eve we went to my parent's church. Afterwards, we started a new tradition since Marty is a new addition to the family. My parent usually gave us new pajamas every Christmas Eve to wear on Christmas morning, we decided to keep this tradition, but to have some fun with it. We decided to buy each other pajamas, yet silly pajamas to wear :) It turned out that Bethany and I were the only ones to get really silly pajamas though!

Let the pajamas begin...


Apparently, Bethany has not wore footed pajamas since she was 2!


Look, my snowman pajamas have a butt flap, very convenient!



Christmas morning was fun as usual. We got lots and lots of presents and enjoyed family and good food, here are some highlights...













Too much fun for Dad!


Thank you for sharing in the Ford/Cates Christmas!!!  We hope you had a wonderful Christmas with loved ones and a happy new year!
