Christmas Afternoon 2008

While the boys and I stayed at my parent's house, Brian came back home to hang up some more gifts for Caleb. You see, I'm married to a man that likes to barter. So, he bartered for some more taxidermy pieces to go in Caleb's wildlife/hunting themed room. These were part of Caleb's Christmas, but Brian wanted to get them on the wall for the full effect. So, with the help of Uncle Daniel, they got it done while the boys and I hung out with my family.

Caleb looking at the animals on the wall...he was shocked.

A hooded merganser...this is the only bird that eats fish (according to the taxidermist we bought it from).

Micah's First Christmas

Here's a quick video of Micah enjoying one of his new toys from Grandma and Granddaddy!

Christmas Eve 2008

Well, it's finally here...I can't believe that it's Christmas already. This is a very special Christmas because it's Micah's FIRST Christmas. He's super excited about everything, and he LOVES getting into stuff...so it should be an interesting holiday!

Today Grandma and Granddaddy came over to give the boys their gifts. We thought it would be better to do today so that they won't be so overwhelmed tomorrow when we go have lunch with my family. Caleb and Micah both racked up, and they had a great time hanging out with my parents.

Micah starting with his first gift.

Caleb is all smiles!

Micah had a blast playing with the paper.

Micah shows Granddaddy how the lion works.

This evening we had supper, gave the boys baths, and then opened up stockings. This is a tradition that Brian and I started once we got married. So, we've continued to implement it each year. Caleb always loves getting into his stocking, and Micah had a good time, too.

Caleb getting his goodies.Ohhhh....card games.

We hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season. Also, take the time to think about the true meaning of Christmas. Without the birth of our Savior, there would be no Christmas. So, remember HE is the reason for the season. Happy holidays to all of you!

Cookies for Santa

Today, we invited Hunter and Tina over to help us make cookies for Santa. I figured if we were making a mess, they might as well join in on the fun. They had a good time, and the cookies were super cute and tasty.

All of the kids are ready to go...

Caleb making a creation...look at the seriousness.Tina is doing a wonderful job...so creative.Hunter making a smiley face.
Look at those happy kids...they are about to get some sugar baby...The kiddos posing with their cookie creations.
