Chicago Christmas Festivities

Somewhat Annual Gingerbread House making contest between families.

Jed and me, setting up the houses and getting ready...


Dio's working hard at TRYING to make a masterpiece




Sangsomwong's Trying to get creative.



Stephenson Architect Firm hard at work....it came easily to us this year since we had the help of our new intern, Brooklyn


We had to redirect our little intern many times because she kept eating the building material....do you blame her?!




The final product....we should have won the contest, but the judging was rigged.


Brooklyn, still tasting the final product!

I dont want to share the pictures of the other houses just because I am still bitter about who won :)

Adding to our annual holiday festivities apparently is rocking out to the DFS band (Dio-Feldman-Sangsomwong)


Jay was a seasoned pro at this....(btw, he's single ladies......wink wink....)


Andro, yep, in a VIKINGS shirt, that's what you get for losing a bet to Brett.





Family photo shoots...



Auntie Rose, Jay, Jed, and Ria....




ALl the cousins...minus a sleeping Isaac.



Kay, I have to laugh at this next picture....which one of these is not like the other?!


Christmas Dinner made by our family Top Chef....


Brooklyn and Ria had their own special table


Opening gifts.










After opening up all the wonderful gifts this is what I find them doing....family session of angry bird.



Finally Jay decided to start playing with the new fun gifts

Of course it didn't take Brooklyn long to attack all her new toys...of course she loved them all, but who would have guessed that her new "furreal" puppy would rank on top?!
