Christmas 2009

We had a wonderful and very blessed Christmas this year. Of course, it's always a fun Christmas with little ones. The excitement they have at Christmastime is contagious! And since we have four little ones in our house, our Christmas is an extra fun one!

Here's three of the four on Christmas morning...



And our fourth, Gavin, experiencing his first Christmas...



Here's Dad with Gavin...



And Mom {aka Me} with Gavin...



And the presents...there were oh so many! When you have four kids, that just seems to happen!

I think the highlights of the boys' presents were their Leapster, Nintendo DSI and Nintendo Wii video games. Gabe and Cooper are video game addicts, yikes!

Chloe got a Pottery Barn Kids doll named Chloe! How cute!



And Jason got an interesting present from his parents...



Yes, I know. Attractive, isn't it?!?
They found this Shriners hat at a tag sale and thought Jason would appreciate the humor of it. Notice it says, "snacks." If you know Jason, you'd find this very appropriate, because food is a passion of his. If he was in fact a member of the Shriners, he would surely be on snack detail.

And I got many presents as well, but the sweetest gift was flowers from my wonderful husband. He knows how much I love daisies...



Merry Christmas to you and yours! I hope it was as fun as ours, and I hope you were able to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, God's gift to us, Jesus Christ! We are truly blessed!
