Christmas morning--finally!!

Christmas Eve in all our new pajamas!

Christmas morning pics

Mostly it's just fun to open!

I made the girls matching dolls.

You'll notice in this next picture that Abby isn't all that excited to receive this doll. Andy thought it was hilarious so he kept taking pictures of her with this look on her face. Here's what happened: the kids knew I was working on projects for Christmas. I had to bring most of them with us to Utah, so I had told the boys not to look in my green bag. When Abby opened this doll, she was so sad. She came over to me and whispered in my ear that she was so sorry because she had peaked. She couldn't even enjoy the doll because she had seen it half done in the green bag. She has played with it since, so maybe she will like it eventually!

She liked her BYU cheerleading outfit a little better--there actually is a little smile behind it!

Luckily, Drew and Brayden did not have the same reaction to their handmade toy. They love these little crocheted animals I do. Kinda silly, but fun. It's tough to make something boys really like.

A great Christmas! The kids had a lot of fun and even though there are no pictures of Mom and Dad, or Gramma Nae and Papa Gary, we were all there!

Thank you for posting these pictures. Because I am learning how to use my little red camera, many of pictures failed to turn out as you can see if you checked out my attempts as posted on my blog. And I had NO pictures of Temple Square. Now what site can I go to in order to learn how to take better pictures?

Your pictures look great to me, and your writing is hilarious, too. I enjoy reading it very much. Renae
