Christmas Morning!

Christmas Eve Present Opening

The kids love our tradition of opening one present on Christmas Eve.  Each year it is usually something different, but always sleep/pajama/pillow related.  This year we did robes and they were really surprised.
 They had been looking forward to this moment all day long, especially Buster!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Beautiful babies all ready for the candlelight service at church.  Unfortunately Chiggie and Tea are too sick to go, so I opted to stay with them.  I am definitely ready for good health in our house!

Christmas Baking

We travelled to Mema's house on Sunday to pick up Chiggie, and also to do our Christmas baking.  We were so excited that the King was able to come along this time.  However, our excitement was short lived.  He and Buster ended up getting really sick while we were there.  It was just sad.  
 The older girls goofed around in Mema's bed as often as possible.  For some reason it is the most coveted spot in the house!
 The little girls were really serious about the baking.  They were great helpers and we made some really yummy treats!
 Poor Buster mostly slept.  He was just miserable.  I was sad he was sick, but happy to know he would be healthy for Christmas Day.
 Midge liked putting the finishing touches on the chocolate dipped pretzels.  She wanted them all to be just perfect.
 Boo helped put the kisses on the peanut butter blossoms.  These are my favorite, so delicious!
These two are sweeter than anything we baked that day, I love them so much, and I am so happy that they have each other.

I am not a shopper.  I just do not enjoy it.  I prefer going and just looking vs. actually buying things.  Today however, I had no choice.  Due to the crazy schedule we have had lately, we were crazy far behind on Christmas shopping.  Like we really had not bought anything.  There has been much sickness in our house the last 10 days or so, and I was disappointed and sad to wake up to Midge feeling awful.  We felt terrible that we still had to go, but she was in good hands, and spent the day on the couch watching movies. 

We did really well, and I am so excited to see the kids' reactions on Christmas.  Almost everything this year is a surprise so it should be really great.  Tomorrow we head to my mom's so that we can bake on Monday.  Only 6 more days!

All Caught Up (Again)

I think I am officially all caught up on the blog. Of course, I can't possibly blog everything these days, there is just too much going on, I do enjoy documenting the life of our little family.  I really cannot believe Christmas is one week from today.  The decorations are up, the kids are beyond excited, I just need to finish up my shopping.  This weekend is going to be extremely busy, and then Sunday afternoon we are heading to Canon City for a short Christmas visit and to pick up Chiggie.  On Tuesday Midge has an appointment with an ENT to discuss her tonsils and adenoids, and Tea has a knitting party.  From then on, I think we are pretty clear until the Christmas Eve Service at church on Thursday night.  I hope so, because it would be nice to have some time to just relax and enjoy!

Breakfast Fun

This little guy and I had a Dunkin Donuts date before grocery shopping this morning.  I just love this little dude so darn much!
