CHRISTMAS!

We had a fantastic Christmas this year. The kids are at perfect ages to make Christmas fun and exciting for everyone.

We started Christmas Eve decorating sugar cookies with friends. If you need a recipe, I've got the yummiest recipe ever, it was VERY dangerous having these cookies in the house. yum!! In the evening we went out to eat with family and watched a movie to pass the time until bed, great times.


Here is the post-Santa tree.

Santa loved his cookies and milk!

Mommy's haul.

Beth's pile o' presents.

James' stash.

Oops, guess I never got a picture of all of Daddy's presents, he wasn't forgotten though!

The kids favorite gifts seemed to be James' new racetrack and cars, and Beth's new set of Dress-up clothes and accessories. They loved everything they opened though and were very appreciative, it was great.

During the afternoon we went to Grandma and Grandpa Owen's house and had a great ham dinner with the whole family and opened a few more gifts. I, of course, forgot to take pictures of that part of the days events. It truly was a Merry Christmas for all of us, despite eating myself completely uncomfortably sick. :) Someday I'll learn not to eat so much when I'm this big pregnant! I hope you all had a great day as well. We love you all! Please know that we love you, even though we did not send out one Christmas card this year...I guess the baby announcement will have to count in a few months!
