Christmas Day 2011

The kids slept in until 7:30 which was AMAZING!!!!  Here they are coming out to see what Santa delivered while they were sleeping!

They ran over to the plate of treats left for Santa to see what he left behind.  He left one marshmallow and some M&M's which Mabel decided to eat once we all turned our attention to the presents!  We made the kids wait for mom and dad to get our coffee because we love listening to them look for their presents.  Well, Jbird is the only one who can read the names so he tells them!

Every year we get together with the George's to have coffee cake and mimosas and exchange gifts.  Due to the amazing neighborly acts this year, they received the "NOY" (Neighbor of the Year) award!!!!  They LOVED it!!!

The girls loved the dollhouse and played with it a lot!

The trash!

Jbird's "big ticket" item was a train and he says it's his favorite gift although I think the nerf guns Uncle Christian picked out might be a very close second.
We put the girls down for a nap and then Jbird and I headed up to my parent's so he could play more with his cousins.  We took a beautiful walk along the bluffs!  It was an amazing day!

The chaos of the Little house!

Present time!  Yessssssssssssss

Have I mentioned that Ryan proposed on this very porch so I always like to get a family picture there because over 8 years ago, it all started right there.

These two are inseparable!  I wonder why?  Their mommies would be too if they lived close to each other.

It was a GREAT day and we will miss our cousins soooooo much.  Until our next visit!  Now, Auntie Courtney, Uncle Dave and kids come to town tomorrow so here we go again....

Looks like lots of fun! Those outdoor shots are making me want to move back to LA - looks so green and pretty outside. ALL of our kids slept in on Christmas, too. A very nice gift to us!
