Christmas in February

Since we don't have enough going on February, haha...I thought I would put some of our Christmas pictures up.  This week I will be busy getting ready for Brice's party as well as making sure all the Valentines' are finished up and the house can always be cleaned.

So, Christmas in February it is!  We celebrated with my parents the week before and then headed to Charlotte to celebrate there with Aunt Blaire and Uncle Josh.  We were also able to see my grandparents which I was so so thankful for because they were able to meet Kyle for the first time.  These things mean so much regardless of how much work it was/is!  After that quick visit we headed home to celebrate Christmas Eve and Day with Justin's side of the family.  Also, very thankful that both of his grandmothers were able to join us as, let me just be honest, time is taking it's toll.  It is so hard for me to watch all of these wonderful people age so when I see the joy on their faces when the little ones are around, I would do Christmas everyday for them!

Get comfy, because here comes a photobomb...

Kyle taking Grandad his gifts.

 New clothes for Julie and an Etch-A-Sketch

Anna got some "Coke" Lip Smackers!  Yummy.  And, can't go wrong with giving Kyle any type of ball!

Anna was showing my Grandma her shirt and sleeve.  Love the smile on her face.

We were able to see Kristen, hooray!!  She moves to Seattle next month, boo!! (But happy for her, :))
 Great Grandpa love.

On to Christmas Eve and Morning...

 Kyle and Jack playing trains.  Kyle loved his ice cream!
 Santa brought Anna a "ballerina house", Prince Eric and Barbie.  She loved it!
 We recycled and used cereal boxes for gift boxes. Brice thought this was hilarious. Santa brought Brice the last two Harry Potter movies, Dumbledore's wand, and a quill.

 We gave Anna a Barbie car for her new Barbie.
 After Brice and Anna had opened their gifts, we woke Kyle up to enjoy his.
 He immediately knew what to do and climbed right in.
 Pa and three out of the five grandkids
 This was the night before when I snapped a picture.
 Jack played trains all. morning. long.  He is Mr. Thomas the Train!
And here is Strawberry Shortcake with her Stompeez on.  Crazy slippers that are actually pretty cute and they don't make noise so that's a plus!  It was a very Merry Christmas!  Now, onto the birthdays!
