Christmas Morning 2012

"Santa" brings one gift for each of our children.
They both received the same gift this year!

 Excitement reigns!

Mom and Dad apparently went a bit wild this year!

So far everyone still has their eyeballs!

A request of a few years...

Butterfly kit and Interior design drawing kit!

A special charm to add to the bracelet!  

Joseph is a master at the pogo.  In fact he absolutely wore out his old one!

 Very first Christmas for a much love baby!

Christmas Eve 2012

Mommy being silly

Samuel being silly

We wait while Dad figures out the camera remote...

More silly waiting...

Oh look we are all together!  Where is Samuel looking?

 My special big kids!

We attend church on Christmas Eve and for some reason we have been eating Mexican food for several years now for our Christmas Eve dinner!  Then we come home and everyone is so excited for the Christmas Morning!

Pre-Christmas Baking 2012

These two had the best time baking and icing Christmas cookies!

They may have had some icing by this point!

 Samuel getting in on the action!

A plate of fun, love and deliciousness!

Happy New Year 2013!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We have all succumbed to the demon virus going around, and this bug likes to linger long past his departure date!  Brendon came down with it before Christmas and is still recovering, and we all fell like dominoes after that.  The oldest two children are well, but the grown-up and baby are still WAITING to be cured!

We enjoyed our Christmas meal and I will post photo's soon!  We had some great out of town visitors with us!

This New Years  Eve was a quiet one.

Brendon and I abandoned Weight Watchers for a week or so to enjoy feasting through the holidays, but  we are back on the wagon!  It's going well!  I have to lose two more pounds to get back to pre holiday weight.

School is back in session.  We have a full set of lesson plans for the rest of the year.

Hope to get photos up soon!
