Christmas Fun.......

What a busy, fun, happy weekend!!

After lots of Christmas Eve baking and dinner made by hubby, we had a special Christmas Eve snack....yummy vanilla ice cream with pieces of peppermint candy we crushed ourselves....a wonderful idea from Heidi at Blue Eyed Blessings!

We put out our cookies and milk for Santa and carrots and reindeer food for the reindeer and soon, all the children were nestled all snug in their beds and fast asleep-except the baby, who didn't feel too well on Christmas, he had a tough Christmas Eve night.
(yes, I know the reindeer food is in the house, my husband and I obviously didn't think that one through when we did it the first time with my oldest and then couldn't change it the following year, newbie mistake)

Since then, it's been lots of opening, eating, visiting, eating, playing, eating........the kids are having a ball and I'm in chocolate heaven!

Rocking out with the Barbie guitar my two youngest girls got from their cousins.

Love these paper dolls-I ordered them for my mom to give to my 6 year old-great present!

My 12 year old's favorite gift-this was a tough one for us but she loves it and while I'm in chocolate heaven, she's in texting heaven!

Trucks-need I say more.......

Not a present but she loved the wrapping paper-she was easy to shop for!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

Very cute pictures! I forgot to take out my camera-at all! My kids are bigger, so I would have shot them reading or doing Sudoku (sp?).

Looks like you had a great Christmas!

My youngest daughter got that same Barbie guitar when she was 3 years old and it was every child's favorite toy for years!

Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas Dawn! Your comment about the reindeer food cracked me up. I've never thought about that!!! And we've had it "inside" for years! LOL I also loved seeing your daughter in texting heaven. I know that stage all too well with a 12 year old daughter myself. She doesn't go ANYWHERE without it!
