Last weekend we had a 'fun- old fashioned family sleepover' for our Christmas celebration w/ Michael's family.
We timed it perfect and spent the night while a snow storm dumped several inches while we were all sleeping. I wasnt feeling well and later found out I had/have phnomonia...but that didnt spoil any of the wonderful memories we made that special Christmas snowy weekend :)
First up: Christmas Cookies! It was the shirts vs. skins bake off ;)
skins- I mean-Sova won for most sugar on her cookies...I think 1/2 the container was dumped on just one cookie.
Hmmm...it looks like someone is waitng to open her stocking!
Caleb is showing off his extra large chocolate Kiss from Grandma...he was shocked at the size- it was so cute because that has become their little thing...they know Grandma leaves them kisses around the house...this one was extra special :)
The anticipation has come to it's climax...
It's official: My battle to keep video games out of the house was defeated...and the kids were elated...(dont tell them Mike and I stay up too late batteling eachother in Mario!) I think Jacob was shocked that he actually has a Wii. I'll admit...the thing is cool :)
Uncle Brian giving some nerf tips to Caleb :)All Dolled Up...
she was so happy to recieve her 1st- 'talking doll' and it came w/ a beautiful matching dress for her...she looks like a flower girl in it...so pretty.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus in the flesh!
The elves...I mean Erin and Uncle Robby busy putting together Caleb's hotwheels set :)
Caleb braveing the windy freezing aftermath... for about 10 minutes...after about 7 minutes of clothes prep per kid= over 20 minutes of preparation= worth it for a few good pics :)
Thanks Mary & Greg, Rob, Erin & Brian for a wonderful Christmas weekend...love u all!
