Christmas Day 2010

What a perfect day! We woke up to a white Christmas! It was beautiful! The kids woke us up with shrieks at 6am ready to run downstairs. On the way down the stairs Maddie (our organized family member) stopped everyone to remind us that we had to take a picture of them on the stairs "like we always do". (she's 9. Bless.)

On the way to see what Santa brought

our dream of a white Christmas came true!

ohhhhh the screams!


Maddie gave Ella a cute baby doll bed (rescued from a yard sale and painted pink)

I love this of Sam...after the madness of Christmas morning, he enjoys a quiet moment with a sucker watching a DVD.

Ella got an easy bake cupcake maker. She is quiet the chef. She spent the morning making lots...and LOTS of cupcakes!

toward the end of the day we took some time out for sledding! Sheryl and Sam went flying down the hill in our back yard.

Sam was a snow ball throwing machine!

Ella says, "I LOVE SNOW!!!"

We are on noise overload--a typical Christmas night experience! :) Maddie got a karaoke machine, Sam got a remote controlled car and a paper guitar so we've had a LOT of background noise in our house today. Truth be known, I love it! It was a wonderful day.

I pray that wherever you are tonight that you are feeling the warmth of family and the love of our Heavenly Father. Merry Christmas to all of you!
