Our Christmas...

Wow. What a Christmas. We had so much fun with all the parties, family, food, presents, traditions, and Christmas JOY. It was a fun (but hectic) year with the hoard. Aiden and Andrew really understood "Santa" this year, so that part was fun (and useful for bribing). I had over 300 pictures from Christmas day, so to save you all from ultimate boredom, I just picked 1 picture for each of us and a group shot. If you have a deep desire to see all the pictures come on over and we can take an hour, eat a snack, and go through them all!
The Group getting ready to go and see what Santa left them. They were all so excited. Even Paige and Morgan....although they had no clue what they were so excited about.
Aiden opening his gift while watching Andrew open his. Focus boy!

Stockings are one of my favorite things to do. I love finding little stocking stuffers. Andrew was so excited for his McQueen toothpaste!

Oakley opening her Tinkerbell movie. That girl loves her Tinkerbell!

Paige would just go around playing with every one's presents. When someone dropped a toy she would be there to pick it up.

Poor Morgan. Too bad she can't eat some of that chocolate money. She did love carrying it around though.

Mom acting surprised at her gift. Every year I buy something for myself and have Trent wrap it. This system works well for us. (Trent does surprise me with gifts too)

And now Trent's turn. He bought this DVD himself and I wrapped it. We are such a fun couple!

The rest of the day consisted of Christmas fun at the Jensen's and the Veigel's. It was so much fun to see what everyone else got, enjoy a good breakfast, exchange gifts, have Luke cook me the best ham and cheese melt ever, and, simply, loving the Christmas feeling. We hope you all had a great Christmas and here is to another great year!

I love that first picture. It makes me wonder if all the little naughty things they do are worth it when on Christmas morning they can all bundle up together in your bed and just be blissfully happy. I just love your family and I look up to you and Trent for being such good parents.

Glad you had a great Christmas!

I love that you were able to catch them all enjoying Christmas. The picture of all of them on the bed is my fave. How cute! You guys are too funny: buying your own gifts!
