Brandon was kind enough to bring his sleds and snowboard over to Nana and Papa's house Christmas Day. Both Brandon and Kylie had so much fun, as did Charissa and I. Both of us spent our time laughing most of the time we were out watching them.

Christmas Eve

We celebrated Christmas this year at Nana and Papa's house. We were especially blessed this year because Nana was released from the hospital just in time for Christmas. We opened presents on Christmas Eve. The day was especially long for Kylie since she knew we were going to open them that day, just didn't know the time. The anticipation was almost more than she could handle. Lacey on the other hand didn't have any idea what to expect but let me tell you once she started opening presents she was a present opening machine! Of course she had no concept of the fact that everyone has their own presents. She tried to open everyone's present, it was cute!

Lacey was so excited with each present she opened. She is really into Mickey and Minnie Mouse so of course anything with either of the two of them she got really excited about. Uncle Chris and Auntie Charissa got her a large Minnie Mouse which she loved. When she opened it she exclaimed, "Minnie Mouse!" and gave her a big kiss, it was very cute. Papa said it was the highlight of his Christmas!
One of the gift on Kylie's wish list was American Girl dolls. She received two Our Generation (which she believes to be American Girl) dolls. She is thrilled with the dolls. In addition to the dolls she received two extra outfits for them.
The girls were so much fun to watch this year. The joy they bring is amazing, and I am just thrilled to watch them get so excited for each thing they opened. I must say their Aunts and Uncles really spoiled them, it seemed like toy overload for a bit! :)
I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas, I know we did. :)

Christmas in our home

I love to decorate for Christmas. It is such a festive time of year. This is my favorite corner of the house during Christmas season.
The angels on the right of the picture were my late Grandma's. I so thankful that I have them, they mean so much to me. The Nativity was given to me by my mother-in-law I think it looks perfect among the angels. And the Christmas stockings with Kylie and Lacey's name on them were made by Greg's Aunt Janet. The girls love them...and so do I. :)

First Grade Christmas Party

Some pictures from Kylie's Christmas program. She had so much fun at the party! It was fun to watch the kids have fun and enjoy themselves.

I loved the reindeer headband and rudolph nose!
Each of the kids got to open presents from Santa that were for the classroom. They had so much fun opening the presents.
Of course the main event was getting to see Santa and tell him what they wanted!

Kylie's Christmas Program

This year Kylie's Christmas program was held in our church. It was a beautiful program all the kids did an excellent job!

The Kindergarten and First Graders were angels, they all looked so cute.
The songs the children sang were wonderful, it was a very well put together program.
The kids were very serious about their parts of the program. It was beautiful to watch.

Lacey's Christmas Program

Here are some pictures from Lacey's Preschool Christmas program. She looked so cute and did such a great job. We were so proud of her.
The program was great! Greg, Kylie and myself sat in the back so we could blend in with the crowd, I was worried that if she saw us she would not finish the program.
I was wrong, at the very end she did spot all three of us and was still content to stay with her teachers. She was a sheep, I loved the costume.
The teachers had a genius idea of giving the kids pretzels to occupy their time during the program. Lacey loves pretzels, it was perfect for her!
I asked her if I could take her picture after the program, this is what I got from her :)
