Merry Christmas 2009

Ahh, the day is coming to a close and all the kids are asleep. It was a good day.

For the past several weeks Kessiah and Jenessa have been discussing whether or not Santa is real or if it is just Mom and Dad who put the gifts out (they don't bother to ask me anymore because I just say "What do you think?") But on Christmas Eve (after our annual acting out of the nativity and new pajamas) there were no questions...they eagerly put out cookies and milk for Santa and went to bed...and stayed in bed!

The girls came bounding into our bedroom around 6:45 a.m. We let them explore the toys and goodies from Santa before Logan got up around 7:30 to see what Santa left for him. Mason didn't make it up until around 9:00, so he missed all the commotion. By that time the girls were watching a movie Santa had left for us (Barbie and the Three Mustekteers, we also watched G-Force and Bolt that Santa left for our viewing pleasure today!)

We enjoyed a yummy dinner of ham, mashed potatoes, creamy broccoli & cauliflower, green beans with carmelized onions and of course the homemade rolls!

Kessiah lost another tooth today and still has one that is loose. I'm not sure she is going to have any teeth left!

I was excited to get some Cansolidator Pantry sets and Wii Active. My legs are a little sore right now from something I did with Wii Active today!

I have to smile as I reflect on Christmas a year ago...That was the day we told the kids we were going to have another baby! I didn't feel very good so Ryan cooked the ham and we had some simple side dishes that required no effort on my part! I feel so grateful for my many blessings and especially for my Savior whose birth we celebrate on this day.
