Merry Christmas 2012

Merry Christmas 2012
Happy Birthday Jesus!

We had a wonderful Christmas and I hope you all did as well.

Christmas Eve we made our traditional Cinnamon Rolls.

I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to make the frosting.
Unfortunately, I didn't use the splatter guard until half of my kitchen was covered in powdered sugar.
lesson learned but a tasty clean-up

Despite the messy kitchen, Santa paid us a remarkable visit.

SANTA brought us WHAT?!!

Santa obviously enjoyed the cinnamon roll and milk Lauren and Tyler left him.
He also left a sooty mess by the chimney and a NOTE.

Chloe, again received her very own stocking/gift bag.

 She was quite pleased.

After quickly enjoying the stockings... (which consisted of Lego water bottles, umbrellas, candy, and teeth cleaning devices (toothbrushes, flossers & mouthwash))...we made our way to the Christmas tree to open the other presents.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas family time and didn't snap a picture of every gift (which would have been ridiculous) but we did snap a few pictures that sum up our Christmas morning.  Please enjoy these special moments.

Minecraft Lego set!!!!!!!

Her own Gumball Machine!

Minecraft Sword and Pickaxe

(big hit)

Chloe has been sleeping on this present since it made its way under the tree.

All this time she's been laying on the American Girl Doll Chestnut Horse!

Tyler and his Socker Boppers

the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book
(she read in one day)

Tyler's castle block set (created by Lauren.)

Daddy spent a good deal of time putting together Santa's trampoline.

The finished product.
So Much Fun!

Merry Christmas to all and many more blessing for the new year to come!

Looks like everyone had a grand Christmas - even Chloe. Can't wait to visit and see the rest of the Christmas presents. Thanks for the pictures!
