Our Successful Christmas included visiting the Charlotte crew
a new raincoat and purse, and a new basketball
magnetic dress-up dolls
setting out milk and cookies for the big guy, which he did eat and even spilled a little reindeer food on his way back up the chimney
and a robe to go with the slippers
the "colossal" art set from Santa
Brice's favorite gift, his tackle box from Justin and I. Really from Justin as he did all the shopping and purchasing for this.
new boots from Santa that are lined with reindeer fur...Brice truly believes this and I think this is my favorite memory from this Christmas.
Anna sporting her new shirt, bow and socks.
Anna and Jack really love each other!
We bought Brice a Wii for Christmas and Aunt Kelly and Uncle Greg pulled through big time with the SuperMario Kart.
Here is Brice opening his microscope. He has seriously been asking for this since June. He was very excited to get it and has been using it on and off throughout today.
Anna finally got the hang of opening her own gifts! She did her last three all by herself including taking the top off the box and pulling out the surprise inside.
Inside this one was pretty necklaces.
And, the whole group successfully pulled off keeping these pictures a secret from Larry and Robin. We had them taken in October and none of us slipped up ONCE! They are of all three grandkids and were the top thing on their list. Kelly and I are very proud of ourselves for pulling it off after countless emails and a few secret exchanges as well.
And, most importantly, let us not to forget to thank God for giving all of us the best gift of all, a baby boy named Jesus who grew to take care of others and lead like no other. A man who died for all of our sakes and will some day return to us. Happy Birthday, Jesus!!!
