Christmas 2012

We had a WONDERFUL Christmas this year. The day was crazy and exhausting but the children had so much fun. As you get older it becomes harder to find the magic in Christmas, but I am so grateful I can live that magic every year through my children. The light in their eyes, the wonder in their voices, the excitement, the happiness, the pure joy they feel. Its all real, and I'm so blessed to be a part of it! 
Merry Christmas! 
Santa has come!!!

The Stockings

How many siblings does it take to open a present??

Lovin the piano mat! 

Braxton's Christmas! 

Conrad's Christmas! (Minus the firetruck...and the mat is for everyone of course.) 

Bellas' Christmas


Here is a present Justin gave to me...or the family really. I beautiful swing! We still have to buy chains for it and find somewhere to put it, but I LOVE it and can't wait to be able to use it! 

It's a good (And COLD!) day for riding! 


I was also spoiled this year and got a Kindle Fire HD!! WAHOO!! How I ever lived without it, I don't know. Justin got a new "cloud" pillow and a manual tire inflator, and a Jawbone (which Santa brought him early in December!) We all made out pretty well!  Hope everyone's Christmas was merry and bright! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Thank you Aunt Patti!

We have wonderful family who always looks out for us and our kiddos. Between Angie, Gma Bebe and Justin's Aunt Patti, my children are spoiled every birthday and Christmas! These are from Aunt Pattie...she is so sweet and always send the children christmas PJs and beautiful new Sunday outfits for Christmas every year. I gave them her present this morning and they had so much fun opening the box and finding these treasures inside. Everything is PERFECT and fits them all so nicely. 
Thank you Patti! 
Brax and Bella is their new PJs

Before church. Brax was having a hard time and didn't want to be part of the picture, but at least I got on of his in the whole outfit! Bella LOVES this dress Patti! She pulled it out and said "WOW!" and begged me all morning to put it on. Wonderful choice! :) 

After church. I think blue is my new favorite color on them! :) 

Conrad in his PJs. Dont know why the pic is messed up,...sorry! He loves them!

Chuck-E-Cheeses Birthday Party!

I asked Braxton what he wanted to do for his birthday this year, and the first thing out of his mouth.."I WANNA GO TO CHUCK-E-CHEESE!" 
And then he started singing "EVerybody say Cheese is FUNNER!" and didn't stop until 2 weeks later when we drove up to its front door.
(Who ever said tv advertising doesn't work?) 
So, we went to Chuck E Cheese, and invited some dear friends to share in the fun!
