Merry CHRISTmas!

We had a very blessed Christmas surrounded by great food, good fun and best of all, lots of family!! 

The kids were so excited when Grandpa Ed & Grandma came over on Christmas eve and let them each open one gift. Emma got a pair of walkie talkies and Owen got a fun new bike.

We also spent Christmas eve decorating a gingerbread house and making cookies for Santa!

On Christmas morning the kids were thrilled to discover what Santa had left them!! 

Roxie had been a good girl this year so she even got a little treat :)  Every Christmas morning she likes to plop down right in the middle of the fun!

Santa even brought Emma a new power wheels John Deere gator!!  I'm not sure who was more excited about it.....Emma or Owen :)  Good thing there are two seats.

We went to Big Daddy & Lita's house for lunch.  Lita shares a birthday with Jesus so we took cupcakes to celebrate! 

Uncle Joseph got a new guitar and Owen was very interested!


We enjoyed the visit and exchanged fun new things!  I even received my first sewing machine (including lessons), a new crock pot, comfy pajamas, lots of fun gift cards and much  more!

The kids had a busy weekend and were ready for some rest:

On Sunday afternoon we enjoyed a Christmas gathering at Grandpa James and Dorothy's house.  We look forward to two more family gatherings this week.........
