Christmas Morning 2009

Just like when I was a kids, I still as an adult can't sleep on Christmas Eve. John and I were both up at 5:30am on Christmas morning. While our children were all still sleeping soundly. At 8:00 am we couldn't stand it anymore and had to wake them all up! This brought joy to our two youngest however our teenage boys were not as thrilled about being awake at 8:00am on a non-school day! Below is our tree just waiting for little kids to come and enjoy.This may not be the best picture ever but, getting one of Gabe and I together is very rare and I cherish each one that I get. Ladies this one is mine and you will have to go and get your own super cool model for Christmas! I love how my husband makes everything that he gets fun. Even if he already knew about half of what he was getting. Down fall of having to shop together.
Santa didn't let Gabe down. Gabe no joking asked Santa for Shampoo for Christmas. He got 3 bottles. He also asked Santa for Tootsie Rolls and a cool Dinosaur House which he also got.
Dustin did Corn de-tasseling this summer and with some of his earnings he purchased a new to him but used snowmobile. So we thought it would be fitting to get him his helmet, snow paints and gloves that he would also need. John and I the kids minus Gabe enjoyed 5 days together snowmobiling in the U.P. the day after Christmas. Gabe and I enjoyed some one on one time together while they were gone.
Shenira with a movie that she asked for. She also got new earrings that she picked out.
This is Tony and Jordon opening the Family gift. The Wii Fit. I have to admit that this was a little bit of a selfish gift as I wanted it very badly :) But I'm sure that we will all enjoy the benefits from it! Tony and Jordon both got Class Rings this year for their gifts and The Rock Band for PlayStation 2.
All of our stockings after Santa filled them.
In our house Christmas is always a treasured day. Not just for what we get on that day but for what was given to us on that day many many years ago. We are so thankful that we have such a loving Father that provides for us EVERYTHING that we need. I hope your Christmas was filled with as much joy and happiness as our was.

  1. Your Christmas looks as wonderful, fun, plentiful, and loving as ours. Isn't it the best?! God is so good to us especially for coming so that one day He would die on the cross for all that would believe.

    I love your blog and what you are doing here. Maybe next Christmas you should ask for a printing of your posts in your very own blog book. They are great!
