~Christmas Day~

I have lots to share with you about what has been keeping me so busy and not blogging.
So I thought I would start with Christmas Day. The girls were up late Christmas Eve so they slept in Christmas morning. They got up about 8:30am. Thank God we have kids that like to sleep!! Of course the first thing they run down stairs to see if Santa came. I don't know if we will ever get pics of them coming down the stairs. I guess we would have to be up before them. Hmmm...don't know if that will ever happen?

Santa brought Aundrea...Polly roller coaster water park, Little Pet Shop Pet Daycare, and a MP3 player. Cassie... a plane, train, and baby doll. We could hear squeals of delight. I guess Santa did good!!!

Kevin hand made a jewelery box for Aundrea. He had been working on it for a couple of months and Aundrea had seen all his progress and even picked out the color of the lining on the inside bu she never knew if was for her. She was very surprised and excited it was for her.

I had found some scrap fabric in a quilt shop back in October that would just look so cute for a little girls blanket. But I didn't have enough to make a big blanket for both of my girls so I made a baby doll blanket for each of them. They were so excited and loved the blankets. It just makes my heart smile to see that my girls love handmade gifts not just the store bought ones.

A white Christmas... we had!!! We got a lot of the beautiful white stuff. When we opened the front door we pushed the snow, if drifted so much. We had 7 to 10 inch.

Here is where the snow drifted up against our back door.

Here are the girls playing with the easel that my mom and dad sent Cassie. Hours of fun!!

Another snow drift at the side of our house.

Kevin took the girls out back to built a snow fort.

The fort did not do to well on the grass so Kevin shoveled off the patio and built if there. Cassie came in but Aundrea stayed outside and helped her Daddy. We had a great Christmas day just enjoying each other. We had our big dinner Christmas Eve with friends (that will be in another post). So we had leftovers Christmas day which made it nice that I didn't have to cook but just enjoy my family. I hope you all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to the new year.
Thanks for stopping by. Many more posts to come.
