Christmas 2011!

Better late than never, right?!

Blogger uploaded these in backwards order so start at the bottom & scroll up, ok? I really don't feel like going back & re-uploading them. 


Best way to describe our Christmas evening - fireworks, tamales, & charades!

We just hung out by the fire & ate lots & lots of food!

My momma & me! 

After brunch, we all headed to our own houses to change into comfy clothes & head to my brothers for games & more food! It was totally spur of the moment & turned out to be one of the most fun Christmases I can remember!

Kiddos chowing down!

Some of the boys flipping flap jacks!

After we cleaned up a little, we got ready to head down to my grandparents for Christmas brunch. 

This is the only picture I took down there on my camera -whoops! My cousin, Meagan, announced she is having another   sweet baby! So excited for her!

Christmas morning was so much fun! 
I love seeing the living room full of the kiddos aftermath. They both were so sweet that morning!

My handsome with his new train set! He got a new train table for his room - he is in heaven! 

We took Addy to the Christian bookstore a few weekends before Christmas just to "look" at big girl Bibles. After she picked one out, we went to another part of the store while Daddy bought it. She was so surprised to see that purple Bible - especially since her name was embossed on the front!

Santa came!

and put out cookies, for Santa - of course!

We made reindeer food!

Daddy reads 'Twas The Night Before Christmas every year!

Our cuties in their new jammies!

Drew was so excited Mickey was on his jammies!

Start here!

This Christmas Eve was a little bit different than years past. I serve on the media team at church & that encompasses camera work, video production, lights, sound - all the fun, creative elements of church! I LOVE getting to serve on the media team - it is such a blessing! Since Christmas Eve brings in a lot of people, our church offered 7 services & some of the media team was asked to commit to serving at every service so things would be more fluid & smooth. I got home from serving at 8ish so once I was home, we started our Christmas Eve traditions!

Kiddos get to open one present each Christmas Eve & its always new Christmas jammies. I wonder when they will catch on to that?
