We had a great Christmas!
Everyone received wonderful gifts and it was fun to see the looks of enjoyment for the gifts we gave.
Santa came, leaving the stockings filled and gifts for the boys.
The boys were excited to get bows (archery) all their own after loving the classes they have been taking. They also have a target to practice with.
More loom bands to restock their boxes
The pogo stick that has been on the list since before last Christmas
A working motor kit.
Stockings filled with treats, chap stick and a Nano Block set (miniature Lego type sets)
Then it was on to the family gifts.
Camaro model from Uncle Tim
Fire Truck model
We turned on the yule log for ambiance
Legos from Grandma
Really cool, Lego Technic book
A new stack of books
After we had some cinnamon pull-aparts the boys got to work on building their toys
Ty tryout out the pogo stick before heading off to Grandma & Grandpa Scollay's.
Virginia & Annabel
with Eli and a reluctant Aiden
Before we could start the Christmas celebration we had to celebrate Stu's birthday that was on the 12th.
Time to open.
Judy has been very busy!
She finished this t-shirt quilt for me from my high school shirts
A girl scout throw-back for Virginia
As well as a University t-shirt quilt for Eli (that I didn't get a picture of).
A beautiful knitted dress for Annabel
Ms. Annabel hung out on the couch during presents with her new tag blanket I made for her
A custom made wind chime for Grandpa
Ty reading through a book Grandpa received.
Ty brought his pogo stick to show everyone.
Cody giving it a try.
Playing with chalk
Then it was home for the rest of the day to play some more
Ty's new Arctic Helicopter
My new Keurig (really a family gift)!
The neighbor brought over gifts for the boys, a helicopter in a sphere and battling bumper car dudes.
They are apparently hard to steer and kept going under the couch. When they did have control of them and you hit in the right spot, it would eject the driver.
We finished the day with a simple dinner of ham, potatoes and rolls
We hope you all had as wonderful a day as we did!
