Pictures from Christmas

It seems like it would just take too long to write all about our Christmas. So I'm opting to go with photos and comments.

This is Christmas Eve - Pip really loved snuggling with her Uncle Joby while he was here...

On Christmas Eve the kids opened a gift from Nana and Papa. Guns for the boys (which the were really wanting)...


Here is what Pip would do every time the boys would say stick em up...

The girls with their sweet treats in their new pj's...
On Christmas morning the first gift opened was Piper's kitchen from our flock. She kept saying in the sweetest little delighted voice "It's mine kitchen!!!"

Flock got all the kids cool art stuff...

Cole and his new Kinnex...
Tyson with Little Einstein toys (shocker)...
Wilson's new punching bag...

All the kids got new coats and hats and scarves...


Carson built something with his Kinnex immediately...

Ally got a baby and baby gear - exactly what she wanted...


We got record snowfall here and Carson took advantage of his new coat...

Madison and her new Webkinz, "Pepper."

Just a cute pic of Pip on our way to PF Changs - a Christmas tradition...

The boys playing with their awesome racetrack from Grandma and Grandpa...

We played Catch Phrase with the kids - which they thought was super fun - but the best was Wii boxing with the grown ups. We were EXHAUSTED from trying so hard to punch like crazy. It was really funny. Here and Jack and Joby going at it...

Uncle Jack couldn't get in Christmas Eve due to weather but he finally got here Christmas night. On his last day here he took the kids out for lunch and for frozen yogurt...
I wish I had gotten a picture of my Grandparents who also came and spent 2 days with us. It was a wonderful Christmas. SO many lessons about the body of Christ and God's great love were learned. I am so thankful for my precious family - and this guy is my favorite gift of all...

  1. Sounds like a great Christmas. I have to say that I am REALLY jealous that you went to PF Changs. We don't have one in the city!! Oh bother...
    You should teach Pip to say "I didn't do it" when she's being held up. :)

    1. I LOVE that Carson went outside with the tag still on his coat!
    2. My boys have the same globe and they play with it all the time.
    3. Is that a nightgown Madison is wearing with "Pepper". It's precious. Very Laura Ingals-ish.
    4. Joby and Jack look like Rock 'em sock 'em robots - do you remember that game? That was hilarious to watch.
