We had quadruple the fun this year, with FOUR Christmas celebrations… aaaaahh, the life! It was such a blessing to be able to spend several days with our families and celebrating Jesus’s birthday. The photos will tell a better story, so here goes…
Christmas Eve service… we got all dolled up went to church as a family to remember the reason for the season…
picking the perfect Christmas cookies to leave for Santa.
Ardynn thought a small sample would help to determine just the right one :o)
after sitting out the cookies ‘n’ milk - - - we got into our matching christmas jammies & tried to hit the sack.
i had a hard time this year.
i swear that i heard santa & the reindeer on the roof fifteen times before i drifted off into dreams of sugarplums & candy canes.
whoa! the jolly guy outdid himself this year.
Christmas morning… the Bean woke up first, and came to wake me up.
it wasn’t too hard to get me out of bed that morning.
Ardynn was NOT AT ALL interested in opening any other gifts.
after all, what girl needs anything more than a cute pink car to drive?
trying out our new chairs from mommy & daddy.
the family came by for breakfast & to check out our santa loot.
who needs a driver’s license? …. i went hog wild.
silly bebay hopped in and took me for a spin.
she wedged her foot on the gas & we almost couldn’t stop.
when we got to gingi & popi’s… the Bean got her own ride.
she doesn’t know how to stop yet…. minor detail.
Ardynn torturing the last of flossy’s little puppies. poor pooch.
“just what i ALWAYS WANTED” … a dog that walks on a leash… i’ve been begging kk for months
playing with my favoritest great aunts ‘n’ uncles
cousin michael brought us two tents. genius. i made sure EVERYONE tried it out.
