I thought Christmas was fun when I was a kid.
But it is way funner now!

We got Bea this dee-lux dress up set...
She loved it!

"Pretty, Pretty, Princess"

Will now has a complete John Deere toy store in his room. I went and got him things, Ryan went and picked out some things, and then went again and purchased more.....

Elle loved her football, outfit, computer game, American Girl clothes...

And EVERYONE loves the Wii!!

Usually we attend the candlelight service at our Church on Christmas Eve, and have an elaborate dinner with close friends. This year, it seemed to be a bit overwhelming to get everyone dressed and ready to go, and I was NOT in any condition to make a big meal. We still had our close friends, but they brought the food, and we supplied the wine... My brother Reuben came with my nephews, and a fabulous time was had by all.

Elle made these for us at school, a plate and ornament.

I love giving gifts.

I love getting them too.

Ryan has always been a FABULOUS gift giver, and this year was no exception.

He got me this, a single cup coffee maker. I love it.

And this. ipod nano. in silver. Elle chose the color.

And This.

A book of all the photos Kimberly took of Jack's birth.

I cried.

And those of you who know me, know that I'm not really a cryer.

Especially over a gift.

But, I've been hanging with Kim and Elizabeth...and they cry about everything...

I love that you have someone to blame the crying on. One of the secrets to success in life is knowing who to blame! :)
