Our Family Christmas

Our family went up to Hubby's parents house for Christmas!!!

Right when we got there, Liv found Bapa Ron and they started playing Polly Pockets!


On Tuesday, we celebrated Christmas with everyone! Nana Judy made a wonderful meal, and we all had fun eating way too much...


Little Noah is ever so mobile, so it was fun to watch him get around!


Hubby's family sure knows how to shop!


This is Lucy, Uncle Jon and Aunt Holly's dog. She's a North Pole Italian Greyhound.


Sweet Noah...


Aunt Holly...Liv has a slight obsession with her, and loves her oh so much...


Noah got a rocking horse from Nana and Bapa!


Because of a break in the snow/bad weather, we came home Thursday afternoon. We timed it pretty good, because the snow started shortly there after...

The girls opened up presents from Mom and Dad! Avery got a fun Wonder Woman outfit! :)


I had this game growing up and thought it was a lot of fun...so far it's a big hit!


Avery LOVES to read, so she got her fair share of books to keep her busy!


A Dorothy outfit, a new doll, and a Pilgrim outfit for an American Doll!


This doll, Lily, is a perfect doll for Liv. She's a generic American Girl doll, so that fits the budget well, and also Liv (because she still likes to color on things).


Liv zonked out on the couch right away, so Avery wrote Santa a letter from both of them.


We had to set out some cookies and carrots (courtesy of Nana Judy) and some milk for the big guy!


And, we had to say our goodbyes to Buddy. When Santa came, he took Buddy back with him until December 1st of next year...We'll miss him, but hopefully now Avery will be able to sleep better! :)



Christmas morning we awoke to full stockings, and more presents!




Santa left his mark at our house!



Avery got a collector Barbie doll! Just what she wanted!


(that's daddy back here on the left side snuggled up in mommy's snuggie that she got!!!)




And Liv got the Strawberry Shortcake Berry Cafe...just like she (and Avery) asked for!


The girls have been playing all day together, with little to no arguments! A Christmas Miracle!

As for Daddy and I, we are enjoying being home, and watching the snow come down.

And, as far as what's on the list for next year? A snow blower....seriously, we are hurting after all this shoveling....




and, it's still coming....



If you sent us a Christmas Card, we are enjoying looking at it everyday!





Oh, and check out what was waiting at our door when we returned home yesterday?



LOVE IT!

Merry Christmas to you all!

Too funny! I was scared to death of those little elves when I was small and my mom put dozens of them around the house! I hated it!

Now I'm old and collect them for fun. Hope my kids aren't terrified of them someday!
