Our Christmas

We had to keep "e-mailing" Sant and asking him to come later to our house (I know not something kids typically do, but our kids were very understanding this year).  Our busy December schedule made it hard for Santa to find a time to come, but we finally were able to get all the "schedules" worked out!  :-)
Kyra loving her new pillow pet.

 Gavin is ready for baseball next summer.
A new doll house for the girls - this thing has more furniture than our real house has!
Present time!
Dress up shoes!  Carley LOVED, Daddy - not so much!
Reagan loving her pillow pet!
So we were getting the stockings out the night before Christmas and Reagan didn't want to hang them up, she wanted to wear them on her feet?!
Kyra's year to put the angel on the tree.


She was not so sure about the height thing!  She has a death grip on her Dad's hand and she was chewing us all out the whole time.

A new baby for Reagan.

Gavin has 3, count them...3 pillow pets, but Santa just couldn't turn down a Twins pillow pet - for Gavin it doesn't get much better - Twins, stuffed animal, and something to snuggle with.  Heaven!

Christmas With the Nana & Papa

We finally have a big enough house that we could host Jed's whole family for a holiday.  We LOVED having them all come to our house!  It was a fun weekend.
 Papa, Kyra, Carley & Reagan doing sand art.
 Carley, Nana and Reagan reading a story.

Aunt Laurel and Carley being silly while they snuggle.
Hayden, Reagan, Papa, Carley, Keetyn and Kyra (aka Papa's girls) having supper.
Reagan and Hayden hanging out.  They look so serious!
Reagan and Papa opening gifts.
Morgen and JAcson waiting for their gifts!
Reagan loved opening this bouncing ball - so much so that she had to sleep with it for her nap (ON HER HEAD).  Literally she would not go to sleep unless it was touching her head - I tried to move it even after she fell asleep and she would wake up and grab for it.  Okay, she wins!

Papa and Carley snuggling
Reagan and Papa hanging out.

Crazy gift opening time - 9 kids + gifts has to equal crazy!
She got a baby.  Loves those babies!
Hayden and Ernie.
Papa made Reagan a craddle for her baby.  LOVE IT!

And he made Carley a highchair for her baby. 
SO CUTE and means so much because Papa made them!

The boys playing cards.
When you tell Jacson he can't do something - he proves you wrong.  Reading a story to us with both his feet behind his head.  Ouch!

Kyra and Keetyin dressing up.

Carley dressed her baby up.  She's so proud!
Papa and Reagan playing cards together.

Okay, I literally have about 200 group pictures on my camera looking for the one good (not even going for perfect or great) picture of 9 kids together.  Let me explain what a good picture is with 9 kids - ALL LOOKING IN THE GENERAL SAME DIRECTION - that's all!  :-)
