Here was our Christmas
Well it only took a few days but I finally got my christmas post together and it's mostly pictures. This year was a year of new traditions. We are having a bit of an extended family issue so we had made plans to not have any plans for Christmas. Ryan had to work Christmas Eve day so we spent the morning at my mom's (grandma's) making cookies. The kids loved it so much and I scared them into thinking they would get sick if they ate the dough which meant I had to sneak bites :).
|Some of the YUMMYNESS|
|She did NOT want a cookie with B germs on it!|
|After all these years my Mom finally got her blue eyed child!|
|B did better than I thought|
|C was so handsome.....can you see the haircut he gave himself??|
|She loved when the dough got stuck!|
|Icing was their favorite|
|Uncle Kent had fun too!|
|The girls were trying to hold the boys back from eating more cookies.|
We started another new tradition this year and went to a movie on christmas eve. We saw Yogi Bear, and I will say it was pretty lame and if I didn't have a kid in my lap I definately would have fallen asleep but my husband will tell you he thought it was funny and "pretty good"
After that we headed home and on a whim decided to go to midnight mass, more on that
|R opened her Belle doll Christmas Eve|
|C loved playing Hungry Hippos, and you can see more of his lovely haircut.|
|B was just happy to be up so late!|
|These kids have so much happiness it's heartwarming|
|See no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil!|
The upside and it was major was that the kids slept until 10:30 Christmas day, and WE had to wake up the boys ourselves!!!!!!! I didn't get a ton of pictures of the kids opening presents because I wanted video, and someday I will get that uploaded, but here are a few. Excuse the lack of editing in some of these....

|The ONLY thing the kids asked for!|
After we opened presents we headed to my Mom's and then to Ryan's Aunt and Uncle's to finish up the Christmas "rounds"
We had an absolute blessed Christmas and are looking forward to the new year and all the possibilities.
