Christmas Eve Day

We head over to my parents house around noon every year for Christmas eve to have lunch and to exchange gifts. This year felt very strange to me because A#1 was working and only came long enough to eat really fast and open his gifts and then head back to work. He even said when he got home that it didn't even feel like Christmas ti him. It's very sad when you realize you are growing up and things change more than you thought they would. And to me it's hard to see him realize that.
This little girl realized it was Christmas though and she was so excited about it all.

And so did these kiddos.

Polly Pocket was very popular this year for both of my girls.

Cam-rod, another one that's growing up way too fast :(

A#2 was so excited with her new Bop-it game. She's setting a new record every day.

Somewhere in one of these pictures you can see the top of Miss Lily's head. She is doing so great and getting so big so fast. She is an answered prayer and something we are all very thankful for this year.Just the beginning of our family Christmas together.

Snow storm of 2009

This is what it looks like at our house this morning. 19 inches of snow fell in the blizard and now we are just waiting for the good times to begin.

Looking out our front door.

When I opened the back door it was all the way up the door.

No grilling today.

No swimming today.

Not sure if we can get to the garage.

Half way up the fence.
It's beautiful outside!! Hope you are all safe and warm!

My very first swap!!

I participated in my very first Swap and look at what I received in the mail. My swap partner was Summer all the way in Oregon. How cool is it to know that I now have a new friend on the other side of the USA. You can visit her at

We opened the box and were so excited to see what was inside.

How cool are these? She made them and they are just perfect for our tree!!
Oh my this girl has some mad skillz! These are made from Popsicle sticks and scrabble tiles. LOVE THEM!!! We put these on our "fun" tree.

Love it!!! A#3 thinks this one is just for her since it's her middle name.

My fave of them all. I would love to have a tree full of this one!!
Thank you soooo much Summer. I hope you enjoyed yours as much as we did ours. I pray you will have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
