A Little Christmas Cheer

We had such a great Christmas. Here are some highlights, minus an awesome Christmas Eve with the Scotts and Thackers! I was a dummy and didn't bring my camera so I have to hunt down those pictures. If you are reading this and have some of my family, please send them my way. It was such a fun time and I want to share it. :) (I am sure their will be more to come.)

1. Opening our Christmas pajamas.

From Christmas

2. Reading our Christmas Stories. We get a new one every year.

3. New this year for me was creating Christmas! I loved making the tree, the stockings
and the Santa presents look just right for the kids to wake up to Christmas morning.

4. Unwrapping gifts.

(My mom and dad came from Louisiana to celebrate with us. My mom made me and B matching aprons with
our initials on them, and Merrick and Tyson matching tool belts with their initials on them.)

My mom got me a pair of True Religion Jeans! 
I was so excited as you can tell.

My brother and sis in law got the twins this crazy set of tents. They are linked together by tunnels and the twins played in that thing for hours! Such a cool gift, but it will have to be an outdoor toy until will have a house. ;) It doesn't really fit in their room.

Tyson got a blow gun. They are illegal in California, so I used my contacts outside of the state to buy a couple for Tyson and his friend. At first I didn't see why they were illegal, but look at what the dart did to this box. I have to tell you that Tyson shot the back of the box, and it went all the way through the back and through the front. Those darts are so sharp!
I got a cake stand. This isn't the one I wanted, but no worries, I took it back and got the one of my dreams. :)
Merrick was the cutest opening presents.
I made him a Buzz Lightyear costume, and he opened it and yelled, "Buzz" and was so happy! Berkleigh on the other hand saw the kitchen and then refused to open any other toys the rest of Christmas morning. She just played with the kitchen.

My shoes I wanted.

This was my black friday find!
I got the third season of House, one of Tyson's favorites and we have the first two seasons, for $10 at Target.
We got Netflix from my bro.

And here is the disaster we made! 
(We got Merrick a city rug and lots of wooden trains and cars to build and drive all over.)
