Christmas Day 2011

Christmas morning the girls slept until about 7:00am, which is fairly late for them, especially on Christmas morning!! They were so excited!! They loved all the stuff in their stockings and loved what Santa brought!

Camden and Claire decided to try out Camden's new karaoke machine! What fun!!

Camden got another puppy...she can even walk this one!
Carlyle loves her new baby.

After all the gifts were open, we got ready and went to church to watch Selah get dedicated.

After church, we headed to Nana and Papa's for more Christmas fun! Carlyle LOVED her cars and ramp that Santa brought.
Santa brought Camden and Claire vet coats, medical tools and two puppies to take care of.

Uncle Jeremy brought Camden and Claire hula skirts. They put them on and tried to hula.

We had a great Christmas and loved spending time with our families! We are truly blessed that our families live close so we get to spend holidays with all of them!

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve morning we went to Nana and Papa's house for a Christmas surprise and lunch. The girls were super excited to get Playdoh sets!! We had to open them up and try them out.

After all the girls had a nap, we headed over to Marme' and Pops house for our annual Christmas Eve fun. Here are all the cousins ready for a great time!!
Mommy and Selah
Birthday party for Jesus!

Santa made an appearance and handed out gifts to the kids.
Carlyle was in awe.

All the grandkids with Santa, minus Carlyle. She loved him, but didn't want to go near him.
Then we had our White Elephant Gift exchange and this is the classy gift that Jeremy and I brought. David was the lucky winner and he LOVED it! He's going to display it proudly on his front door at his apartment in Houston.
Camden got a puppy, although it's not the real one she had been asking for.
Claire got the van that goes with her dollhouse.
Carlyle loved opening gifts!!
Rachel and Camden
Jake decided to try out Marme's white elephant gift. No, he's not wearing glasses. That is silly straws that look like glasses and the end is a straw for his drink.
Madeline and Carlyle had lots of fun dancing.

When we got home the girls were eager to put out reindeer food and carrots for the reindeer.

Then we got the cookies and milk ready for Santa.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!!!
