Pajama Day

It was Pajama Day at Addie's preschool. I volunteered in her class as one of the helpers. This is a day where all the kids come in their jammies, and eat pancakes and hot chocolate for snack time. Then all the girls get to put on make up and paint their nails, (well even some of the boys did that too!), and the boys get to pretend shave. It's a fun time! 

Waiting patiently for her turn

Christmas Night, 2012

After the madness of presents, we all get dressed up to have a big Christmas feast. Robyn's extended family comes over and we all enjoy our fellowship and time together. Auntie Donna and Uncle Doug came from Texas to join! Chris, Sara, and Abby of course came over too.
My mom, and my Auntie Donna, two women I respect more than words!

Christmas Morning, 2012

As usual,we spent Christmas morning with Robyn's side of the family. This is a time for jammies, coffee, stockings, and breakfast. Followed by present-palooza!

Good morning!  Can't you tell the coffee is just starting to kick in?

Papa's stocking was so big, that Addie had to climb in to help him retrieve his goodies!!

She got a "target" American Girl doll.  She didn't know the difference!

Christmas Eve 2012

Our tradition is to spend Christmas Eve with Justin's side of the family. This year, Bobbie and Terri hosted at their new house. We all gathered for good food, good fellowship, and of course, a white elephant gift exchange.  The kids opened a ton of gifts and everyone laughed and had a great time.

Once we got home from Grandma's house, we set out to work laying everything out for Santa and his reindeer.  We have special plates and a mug just for Santa!

Let's get ready!
Santa's preffered cookies are Oreos, of course!

Get them all set right.


Let's not forget the reindeer!

We're ready for you Santa!
