The girls put out cookies, fudge, and milk for Santa.  They put carrots out for the reindeer.  Bethany is being a good sport for her younger sister.

Christmas morning I was able to take a few pictures but my camera battery died.  There was not any stores open so I could buy one.  I don't know what is wrong with me I am usually better prepared!!

 Bethany being silly while she looks in her stocking!!
 Mason checking out his stocking too!  He got 3 packs of treats and a new coat.

 The girls got a bunch of clothes.  I did not take pics of them all since my camera battery was dying.

 Santa brought Bethany an IPOD cover for her new IPOD she bought with the money she received as a gift.

 Santa brought Kylee a Dr. drill-n-fill.  She loves it!

 Bethany and Kylee playing dentist.

 Later in the day we went up to my husbands sisters house for dinner and more presents!  We had a GREAT time.  When we returned home later in the evening my mother and her husband came to our house.
 More money!
Kylee put a bow on her Grandma Rosie and told her she is her present this year!  How sweet!
 The girls opening more presents!

 The girls love their new zebra hats from Justice!  They have worn them 24/7 since they got them!

Merry Christmas and a VERY happy New Year!


Our family had a wonderful Christmas!  Tracy and I did last minute shopping this year!  We shopped Friday evening for our family.  I was surprised that it was not busier than it was!  We was able to find everything we needed and returned home in just a few hours.  We had already shopped for our girls on Black Friday.  We usually don't wait that late but with moving into our house a few months ago we have been extremely busy!

On Friday, the last day before Christmas break, I visited Kylee's classroom.  Her teacher was reading to the kids.
 I passed out plates, napkins, cups, sugar cookies, and milk to the kids.
 The kids did a gift exchange!  Below is a picture of Kylee with her gift.
 All the kids tearing into their packages!
 This is the blanket Kylee bought for the gift exchange.
 My sweet Kylee!

We had my dad's side of the family over for Christmas Eve.  My Grandmother who is 83 decided that she could no longer host Christmas Eve and turned that over to me and my family last year!  She had given me her dinette set a few months ago.  It is an antique set.  I believe it is 60 years old.  It was really nice having her and her children use that dinette set at my house. 
 My Aunt, Uncle, and cousin.  They don't like their picture taken!
 From the left to right...My cousin, niece, Kylee, Bethany, and Garrison being silly!
