before the boys got sick (wow, it seems so long ago), we celebrated their first christmas. we spent christmas eve at tripper’s uncle scott’s house (scott the elder, not scott the brother) with all the allen clan. uncle scott was kind enough to extend an invitation to my parents so they wouldn’t miss a minute of the boys’ first christmas.
the highlight of the night by far was the suprise performance above. i got it all on video tape and will try to post the live/uncut version soon. my favorite song of the night? i want a hippopotamus for christmas! they sounded gooooooood.
on to the photos!

the boys got pretty cranky after everyone left. and then the sickness hit. we were at the pediatrician a mere 12 hours after the fun subsided. i am so grateful they were happy and well for the time we had with family—it truly was a great first christmas!
