Christmas 2009

Feeding the Reindeer and lighting sparklers.

In front of the tree in our Christmas pajamas.

After Santa came!

What Santa left in the backyard.

Eli with his new Buzz Lightyear!

Heath and his Hot Wheels Battle Force 5 car.

Caroline with her dress-up clothes! Santa hit the jackpot with these!

Chloe with her doctor kit! They love to take blood pressures and give shots!

Christmas was exciting as usual. We went to church on Christmas Eve and then came home to feed the reindeer and get ready for Santa. While feeding the reindeer, Eli remembered that we lite sparklers last year and sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and he demanded that we do it again. Luckily, I had a package left over and we got them and lit them. Heath woke up at 2 am on Christmas morning but I convinced him to go back to bed. He told us later that he had looked at every one's stuff but didn't mess with it. Eli was very excited to get the Buzz Lightyear he had been asking for and Chloe and Caroline got dress-up Princess clothes which were a big hit. Santa left a trampoline in the backyard but it has been pretty wet and very cold so we have not got to use it much but I know they will get good use of it once it warms up!

Christmas Parties

Just some pics of the boys at their school Christmas parties. Eli had a ball making a Christmas tree from an ice cream cone (he ate icing by the spoon fulls!). Heath made a gingerbread house and did a great job! I forgot my camera at the girls. I am going to get some pics from their teacher and edit this post then!

C & C Christmas Dance Program

Chloe and Caroline have been taking ballet and they had a program for Christmas. It was a chance for the children to show what they have been learning as well as get them used to being on stage. They both did very well. I have video but I have yet to figure out how to upload it. When I figure it out I will edit and include it!
