Christmas Fun.....

We had a wonderful Christmas, as usual. The kids had a great time seeing GiGi, PaPop, and Uncle Robert.
I think the hit of the whole day was this JumpSmart Trampoline. It's a single person trampoline with handles. It had music and a counter. The kids can all play on it. It's really neat.
Michael got a Flying Dragonfly from MiMi and Pop Pop. That was his favorite toy. We are currently trying to retrieve it from the top of our tallest oak tree!!! It really flies! Michael has spent every moment of daylight today outside playing with it.
Lauren got some horsie stuff, of course. Who knew she would be so easy to shop for.
Emily has been eating everything in sight. Her appetite has been the most indulgent thing this Christmas.
We had a big breakfast. Eggs, bacon and hashbrowns. Then we had an early dinner. Filet Mignon, corn souffle, cranberry salad and yeast rolls. Yummy! It was a great day.
We are looking forward to seeing The O'Donnell Family next week. We are going to Islands of Adventure in Orlando for a much needed family vacation.

Yes, it is.....good call, Hannah. I'm writing a complaint to Vera Bradley. Eric bought my bible to fit the cover and my bible is still too big. I saw the new patterns today, though. They are pretty cute....

What time did the kids wake you up? It still looks dark out in the pictures.
Elise slept until 7 :-)

My kids didn't start getting up until 7:30. I can't believe they slept in so late. We opened some gifts on Christmas Eve. That's why it looks dark.
We used to get up around 4 or 5 am when I was little. I just remember I couldn't sleep. I was so excited.
