We LOVE Christmas!!

Christmas Day night at our house! What a wonderful time! We open presents and stockings, eat cookies, drink hot chocolate and watch a movie together. This year we watched "Meet the Fockers". Such a funny movie and such a wonderful family time. We LOVE Christmas!

Twas the Night Before Christmas

"Twas the night before Christmas" and a very peaceful calm settled over our house. No hustle, no bustle, no craziness, just a peaceful calm! Ahhhhhh! We wrapped presents, baked cookies and watched 2 "Santa Claus" movies! Ahhhhhh!

Jonathan built a fire and we all just chilled (except Danny who had 3 services at the church and Lauren and Chad who had a party at his grandmother's.)

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

Christmas at Our House!

Last night was our big family Christmas party. We had all of my family, all of Anne Marie's family and part of Kim and Greg's family. LOTS of people and chaos! (But we love it that way!)
We ate lasagne, salad, bread, cookies and fudge til we were stuffed! Then we opened presents with the kids and had our "dirty" Santa game. It was a blast!!!!! I love Christmas and family!"
This is the "big" kids table! Jonathan made an awesome fire much to my dad's happiness cause he always freezes at our house.
The "dirty" Santa game is always a hoot! Jonathan ALWAYS gets the crazy gift as he did this time. A pair of ladies slippers (size 7) and a pair of baby pants with the legs sewed up to hold clothes pins on the clothes line. (He said, "what's a clothes line???") Silly boy!

I actually got a pretty good picture of the little kids. Isaiah, Ashley, Patrick, Audrey and Katelynd.

A Little Family Fun!

Well, it's time for tree trimming again. Can't believe Christmas is around the corner! We always get together the Saturday after Thanksgiving to decorate our Christmas Tree. Every year each of us gets a new ornament for the year. Our tree is so loaded that we can barely get all the ornaments on it but, we always manage!

This year we finally got a new angel for the top. Every year Jonathan and Danny make fun of my poor angel (kind of a country cloth angel). I decided we'd retire her this year and get a new one!

Jonathan decided Anne Marie wasn't helping enough with the tree trimming so he sat on her!

Final adjustments on the new angel!

One of the only pictures of Danny and I in front of the tree. Our knees were dead by the time we got off the floor. Old age is such fun!

A little consultation on the lights! @#%#@ half of them don't burn!!!!
