Merry Christmas!

 On Christmas Eve we took everyone out to Victoria Gardens for a last minute visit with Santa and a little shopping. We bought some last minute gifts and visited the fish at Bass Pro Shops.
 It was festively decorated for the holiday. Each of the kids took a turn at the shooting range...oh so holiday :)
Later we drove into the mountains to attend my parent's Christmas Eve party.
 Mia did a little performance of jingle bells. She wore her Christmas dress and looked beautiful.
 Zackary was sick! He only got sicker as the day went on and he spent most of the party asleep. We came home and got him some medicine...poor little guy!
 Max also put on a little show at the party. He performed a recitation from "Twas the Night Before Christmas". Yay Max!
 At home we opened pajamas, ate snacks and watched "Brave". (Brave was part of the Christmas Eve gift...the kids love it!)
 After the movie we tucked everyone in bed and got to work. I still had presents to wrap and Ty had a bike to assemble. I made cinnamon roll dough and we caught a bit of A Christmas Story on TBS before we crashed into bed.
 Christmas morning was great!
I must say I did really good this year :), I mean Santa.....good job Santa!
Everyone was pleased and happy! I love seeing them get excited about their gifts.
 Later in the morning my family came out to join us for brunch. We had cinnamon rolls and quiche. I used the recipe for the Pioneer Woman's cowgirl quiche. It calls for leeks and prosciutto. If you love quiche you must make some!
It was a wonderful Christmas and even though Ty was on call he was able to be with us through the whole morning of fun and food before he had to leave for work.
We had a wonderful time celebrating together and remembering the birth and life of our Savior. What an awesome time of year!

Merry Christmas!
