Christmas Day!

We spent Christmas morning at my parents house with my sister and her three kids. Talk about a busy time!!! We made great memories and the kids were blessed with lots of great new things to play with. Here's a list of favorite gifts:
Christian: Thomas the tank engine builidings and trains
Emma: Digital Camera
Abby: Make-Up table
Nate: Car race track mountain
Ryan: Books
Judy: New curtains for the living room
Amy: clothes
Grandmom: a new tupperware cake keeper
PopPop: He got this adorable shirt that says "My favorite people call me PopPop."
Christian loved his new Thomas the tank engine tent that he got from Grandmom & PopPop.
All Ryan ever wants for Christmas is books. So this year I did a little Ebay shopping and got him enough books to last until next Christmas...I hope.
Nate loved this tent too!
Now Grandmom is ready to scrapbook Christmas!
Thanks soooo much Auntie Mimi (Amy) for these really loud recorders. All four kids have them now!
A new dress for Abby's American Girl doll, Kit.

A fire station for Christian's trains.

Emma LOVED her new digital camera! She took pictures all day!!

This Thomas book was the first present Christian opened (Thanks Christi, Carl, Carter & Kohl) and Christian actually sat there and read it.
Our morning was quite chaotic with four kids and lots of packages in one room. Everyone did a great job of sharing their new things with one another.

It was such a wonderful Christmas morning!! Loud and chaotic (yes, partly my fault) but wonderful too. It's the first time we've shared a Christmas morning together in a long time.

what a great morning everyone had! i laughed when I read about Ryan only wanting books...sounds like Daniel and Ryan would be great friends...Daniel got books from my parents, all from his wishlist on amazon...he goes through them like crazy! we are into selling the ones that we have read on ebay now so at least we are recycling some! :) I'm glad you guys had a great Christmas! Another one will add to the noise next year, huh?

It was a wonderful blessing for PopPop and me to share Christmas Eve and morning with a large portion of our family. We loved the anticipation, especially from Emma, and the excitement of Christmas morning. Jesus' birthday was very special this year because we got to share it with so many special people.

We love the fabulous video you gave us of our home through the years. It brought back many wonderful memories and brought on the tears. Thanks so much for a gift that we can treasure.
