Christmas Day

I guess Santa liked our cookies...

Just a little excited...

Brody got the nut in the poola this year

The three older kiddos all got DSIs this year and were beyond excited. When they didn't get them from Santa they didn't think they were going to get them at all. All month Little E was sure she was getting "a pink car that she can drive in" from Santa, she was right

Santa was good to us this year

I got Photoshop CS4 and still can't figure out how to use it

and a Kodak video camera/camera, small enough to always carry in my purse, LOVE IT!

Dustin got a GPS Backtrack, some camo (can never have enough) and new running shoes

But above all, I am grateful to have a family to share this Christmas with. We've had a pretty crazy month of surgery and worry and I'm so grateful to know that my family is healthy. I feel so blessed to have my kiddos and to share my life with them. I am grateful for Christ's sacrifice for me and that I can be with my family for eternity. I wouldn't want to do it without them. I love that this Christmas season continues to teach me every year how blessed I really am!

Looks like your family had a great Christmas. I would love to be your sewing buddy, just warning you I am a beginner I have only made baby blankets. My mom sews but when I go over there to barrow her machine she takes over so I decided to buy my own machine.

Oh!! I love the picture of the kids on the stairs. Three of my kids also got DS's for Christmas...and all three have already been grounded from them. Grrr.
