Christmas 2012

Christmas was so much fun this year.  After checking the carrots out front for the reindeer and the cookie left for Santa, we went in to the family room and she spotted all the gifts.  Hearing her gasps and ooohs, made all the work worth it.

Callie asked Santa for a scooter and a computer, but Santa only brings one gift and a stocking full of goodies.  So Santa got Callie a pink scooter that she loves.  Callie loved each gift so much that she didn't want to open the next gift, she just wanted to open and play with the gift she got.  It took a while for us to get through all the gifts, but it was so much fun.

Callie got lots of dress up clothes, regular clothes, a new handmade kitchen, pretend food, and pretend pots and pans.  She had an awesome Christmas.  Loren and I had just as good of Christmas.  Loren got an air compressor with nailer, a shop vac, a flashlight, and a hitch for the truck.  I got new white dishes, some pregnancy clothes, and a storage/organizer for the garage.  As a family we got a food processor and a miter saw.   I think we are pretty excited to start all of our new projects for the new year.

After cleaning up and grabbing a few bites of breakfast, we were of to Loren's sisters house for the extended family Christmas.  Callie loved getting even more toys and spending some time with Loren's family.  She sure does have fun with all her Uncles and Aunts.

Christmas was so wonderful here at our house.  Not only the presents were great, the spirit of the holiday was at our home.  It was nice teaching Callie the true meaning of Christmas this year and remembering our Saviors birth.  I hope all of your Christmas's were as nice as ours.  May there be peace on earth and good will towards men!
