Finally Getting to Christmas

Our Christmas was pretty mellow this year. Usually we have a few friends stop by but this year it was just the family pretty much.
Gabe and I were up early to stuff stockings and wrap presents and tune into thee ol Yule Log on TV
Santa brought Parker a pretty Awesome Go Cart drifter! We were anxious for the kids to get up to see their gifts but they slept in until about 10:30am! Ava got a new Rocking horse from Santa (not pictured)
There was some cookies left for Santa ...he ate a few ...must have been full from all the other stops
Like my fire place!
We were really lazy about decorating the house for xmas this year and hanging the stockings somewhere nice so we just kinda hung them where ever we found a hook. Poor Gabe's stocking..it was too heavy to hang.
Ava finally got up...She didn't care about all the presents under the tree..she just wanted those leftover cookies.
Parker soon got up too and rushed for his stocking...it is AMAZING how much stuff fit in that thing..I swear it has some sort of endless black hole in it
Oh and first things first..gotta take the new go cart out for a spin.
All the kids heard it and came out..needless to say Parker is the most popular kid on the block now with that and his electric razor scooter too.
Soon all the family started to come over. The twins were really into wanting to open presents. Ava didn't care at all to open presents.
Once everyone showed up we handed presents one at a time to each person and watched each individual open their gift. The Kids got SO MANY toys and clothes! Logan playing with his new cars toys.
Ava and Lexi opening presents. I swear the Twins must have gotten like every new fisher price little people playsets. I don't buy them for Ava though cause I have all the original Little people playsets from the 60's through the early 80's for Ava.
Jess got Jess some pretty Snazzy new boots!
I got some pretty good items too. Just opened some awesome clothes from my mom, and a cool retro kitty necklace from Jess and this VERY COOL Box Set of the COMPLETE series of I LOVE LUCY..who is my FAVE!!! I also got gift cards and Sims 3 for my Wii!!!
My mom got the perfume box set she's been wanting!
OH BOY NEW PANTS FOR ALEX!
Gabe got lots of clothes. I bought him Some Penguin Silk Ties , Ben Sherman Shirts and Annual Passports to Knott's Berry Farm!
Ava got her very own make up kit..Maybe she will stay outta mine now..she always wants to mimic me when I put on make up. This one is just clear glittery glossy stuff. Oh and she LOVES little Pet Shop. She got I swear almost every Disney Princess Playsets too. She loves Princess stuff.
She could not stop playing with her Pets. She also received a Deluxe Fisher Price Loving Family Dollhouse with some furniture, A Disney Princess Vanity Mirror, Tea set, Clothes, and quite a bit more toys...too many to name really..I guess this weekend I will be getting rid of old stuff she does not play with..hmmm looks like a yard sale is in my future.

My dad opening up his present from me...i got him those oh so popular Pocket Camcorders
My brother was pretty stoked about his xbox game I got him..my dad is still excited over his camcorder.
Parker really hit the jackpot this year too. Besides his new Razor Drifter, He got video games for Playstation and DS,a Metal detector,hot wheels crash up thing he has been wanting, lego battleship game,clothes and tons of other toys I cannot even remember.
My husband is so Great. There were two things I had on my wish list which I was SO not expecting to get..1 was a Tiffany & Co charm I been eyeing for almost a year now of a little vespa scooter in Tiffany blue and 2 the New IPOD Touch cause I totally fell in love with my bosses Ipod Touch...Gabe got me both! I told him You didn't have to get me those especially both!! and his response Why wouldn't I you deserve them! Really though the IPOD touch we will both use though so I would say it is more for like the both of us..and now I am finallygetting started on my Tiffany & Co charm bracelet!!
My mom made all the food this year and brought it over. We decided to set the tables up outside and have dinner. Ava was so tiny sitting in that chair at the table. She did have like 3 servings of dinner though!
everything was great! I had to leave the table and get the pie baking in the oven but first not without a shot of everyone eating
After dinner and dessert we all had some drinks and chatted and played music and enjoyed some of our gift. My dad was having fun playing Parker's Paper Jam guitar. My family all left later in the evening and Gabe and I just relaxed watching the kids play with their toys.
We finally got Ava to wear her Snow White dress too! while she played with her princess vanity mirror. It was a very good Christmas and nice to spend time with the family.

NICE Tiffany charm! Now you'll have Tiffany charm bracelet and I'll have a Juicy!!
Aw man you got an IPOD touch! NICE hubby you have!

Iris said...

Yeah..I wanted to do the Tiffany Charm bracelet but I am thinking I am just going to add the harms to my necklace (tiffany necklace) cause the bracelet drags everything around on the surfaces and I don't want to ruin my charm..they are too expensive!

At minimum fifty one % should always be com, despite the fact that in most cases up to 75% is put into use.

Monday night iѕ ρizza night at our house,
with Mom's homemade vegetable pizza at the top of the list of favorites. There are plenty of electric ovens that will still knock your socks off. Top the dough with olive oil or cooking spray, and scoop the onion mixture over it evenly.

An interesting discussion is worth comment.
There's no doubt that that you ought to publish more on this subject matter, it may not be a taboo matter but generally people don't speak about such topics.

To the next! Kind regards!!
