Our Christmas

Our family had a very nice Christmas. It's hard to believe it's over, the day came and went so quickly. But nonetheless, it was a lot of fun. Our morning started out a bit early, Colin woke up at 2:30am with a tummy ache. I believe he was just so excited, that the nerves got to him and created an upset tummy. The bad part, we didn't get much sleep after that. By 5:30am, we gave up on any more sleep and got up. I was not in a happy place by now since I was so tired, but I turned on the coffee and did my best.

Calleigh helped Santa on Christmas Eve with the presents. She was a fine little elf.

Colin really wanted a dog for Christmas but this was the best I could do. His name is Barley and I think he is extra cute.

Barley guarded the presents until Christmas morn.

As soon as the paper started flying, Tiger was right in the middle of it. He can always tell where there is excitement going on and must supervise the situation. I just noticed the date on my camera is still 12/24, must be because we were awake before the chickens were up. It really was Christmas morning in this picture.

Colin wanted a new remote control car.....Santa delivered.

Can't remember what this package was, but I love the look on Colin's face. I didn't get a lot of pictures this Christmas because he was still in a lot of pain with his tummy so it was hard to get him to smile.

After we had our Christmas, we went over to Mom and Dad's to open more presents with them and my Sister's family. They came home from Michigan and stayed with our parents so we could all be together for Christmas. Here is Shelby and Shann, love this picture.

Shelby and Colin with the new Nerf Tag set.

Sophie with her new sock monkey toy. She was tuckered out from all of the excitement.

Once our celebration time was over, we all went to see Grandma at the nursing home. She wasn't hearing very well so she was a little slow, but you could tell she was very happy to see all of us. Grandma doesn't have much room so we cannot give her many presents. However Mom and Dad gave her the best present that she simply loved.

Mr. Panda Bear

The Panda bear is animated and makes all kinds of sounds and motions. Grandma loved the bear. You could feed it with a bottle and he would suck, open his arms, get the hick-ups and do all kinds of other things. She just smiled and smiled at that bear.

Look at this video of Grandma and the bear.


Finally, here is Sophie trying to help herself at our dinner table. How can you resist that sweet face?

That was our Christmas day, how was yours? It's snowing now in Illinois and I love it! May be a day late, but I'll still take the snow. Hope you enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend.
