CHRISTmas 2010

One of my New Year Resolutions is to blog more...funny how with digital cameras we take so many pictures these days, but NEVER print them! I just uploaded an SD card I found wedged in my purse, there were so many great photos I had already forgotten about. What a better way to choose the best ones and add commentary? So I'm challenging myself to 365entries in the 365 days following 1 Jan 2011!

I'll begin in reverse order, starting with Christmas first. :)

We had a nice Christmas at home. Since Austin and I have the littlest ones, our parents spent Christmas Eve with us and stayed the night so that they could see the kids open their presents in the morning, what a special day to have everyone here together! My dad was sick and didn't make it up, so we paid him a special visit a few days later.

The kids were super excited for Santa, however we wanted them to know first and foremost the reason for Christmas is to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus. Let me tell you Cooper LOVES her some baby Jesus - we have a small Playmobile nativity set and Ms Coop always has tiny baby Jesus in tow :) I took the kids through a drive through nativity and we had to circle around twice so Coop could get a better look at 'tiny baby Jesus.' That is what she calls Him, cracks me up, I love it. Banks is VERY proud that he memorized, in perfect order, 'Jesus is the reason for the season,' quite a mouth full for a 4 year old.

Our Nativity Set (including baby Jesus) he's usually MIA

I love the super squinty cheeses. :)

 Gee & PawPaw got Banks 'the skape board' he's always wanted!'
Thank goodness it came with elbow & knee pads & we already have the helmet.
