Christmas Recap

WOW! I never thought I would be ready for Christmas morning and now I cannot believe how quickly it ended! :) It was a great Christmas--Will even said it was his best Christmas ever. :)

We spent Christmas Eve with friends playing with the kids and then playing a mean game of Spoons. We laughed until our sides hurt. Then it was home so we could all go to bed and wait for Santa!

Will enjoyed Air Hogs helicopter and motorcycle, an electric scooter and a note from Santa declaring that one gift was too big to fit under the tree...it was the basketball goal. As he opened the front door to see what it was, the snow started to fall...it was magical.

Caroline loved her American Girl doll clothes, her barbies and her CD player and Taylor Swift CDs!!! She even serenaded us a little!
The picture on the left was the dusting we thought we were going to get. The picture on the right is what it looked like as we left our house Christmas morning and headed to Mark's mom and dad's. We got about 4 inches...which is like 30 feet in Colorado snow! :)

We had great fun playing in the snow...we just are so unprepared for snow...no water proof shoes, only one child had snow pants, no water proof gloves....you name it, we probably don't have it! :)

This tree just screams Christmas to me. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and that your New Year is amazing!

Much love,

  1. Wow!!! SNOW on Christmas! How perfect is that??!! That tree is awesome, too! LOL! 4 inches would feel like 30 feet to us too! My parents got 9 inches in NC while they were here visiting us. We just got a bunch of cold air. It would certainly make the cold air more enjoyable if a couple snowflakes fell, but I doubt that'll ever happen here.

  2. Love the pictures!!...especially of sweet Caroline singing! She can serenade me any day! Miss you. Love you.
