We had a GREAT Christmas! Spent a good amount of time reminding the kids WHY we get and give gifts. I didn't want them getting lost and forgetting about the true meaning.

It's hard to believe Christmas is over and 2010 is on the horizon.
So that's just a little snip-it of how we celebrated.
Hope you all had a VERY MERRY one as well!!

Love that you put the girls bows in before pictures! My girls had some crazy bed-head, but there was no way they were letting me do anything with it before they bolted downstairs! :)

Ha! Actually they went to sleep with bows in their hair that night. J.k. They had total bedhead and didn't get bows until after breakfast. Hadleys hair without a bow is a complete disaster. You wouldn't see her face otherwise. She has a grown out mullet so she needs a bow to keep those bangs back. :0)

So funny! Luke loved his car until it actually ran as well. We are still working on warming up to the car.

Looks like a great Christmas filled with fun, family times.

Great times. We missed not celebrating with you all. Counting down the days to see you guys and hug those sweet kiddos. Their excitement on the phone was priceless! Thanks for spoiling our little man, he's not so sure what the ball popper is all about. D joins in watching the balls fly all over the room. :)
