I love Christmas...
I forgot my camera for Christmas Eve tradition of going to the Thackers for dinner and a program, but I made up for it by taking way to many pictures on Christmas Day...

Here are the highlights of Christmas 09...

1. Christmas Eve at the Thackers.

2. Opening Christmas Pajamas and a new addition.. slippers (scrumptious)



3. Reading Christmas Books



4. Throwing out food for the reindeer that our neighbor, Kristy, gave us...



5. Stayed up too late wrapping presents and putting together presents...



6.Waiting on the stairs to come down and see Christmas...

to see this beautiful sight...



7. The presents...

Berkleigh got this wooden doll house from Santa. It is my favorite thing. It has all wooden furniture... I might "wallpaper" the walls to get rid of the pinkness... but it is dang cute. :)

Merrick got this amazing set of wooden tinkertoys. He loves building with them! I love toys from my past. I will have to find a Rainbo Brite for Berkleigh and we will be set!


8. Giving and getting presents from our family...







I can't believe Christmas is over. All of my favorite holidays are packed in a three month period and it goes by way to fast...

next on the docket.. Valentine's Day aka.. the twins birthday!

I love the slippers, I kinda want some like Berk's! Also love the tree with ALL the presents!

It's the Playskool Rose Petal Cottage. I got it at Toys are us in July. It was on sale and there was a seventy percent off coupon. It was under twenty dollars. It stores inside itself--you could totally make it, but it would likely cost more that buying it. Both kids love it.
