We Wish You a Merry Christmas

"We wish you a merry Christmas.  We wish you a merry Christmas.  We wish you a merry Christmas, and a happy New Year."

I hope everybody had a fabulous Christmas!  I know I did...and I wanted to share it with you all. :)

Before I get started, I must warn you, this has the makings of a very long post with a lot of pictures. ;)  There, you are officially warned.

On Christmas Eve we went to our church's Christmas Eve service and then headed to our grandparent's house.  We do this every year. ;)  At my grandparent's we eat yummy food and then open presents.  We start out opening our gifts one at a time so we can all see what everybody else gets.  But, usually, our excited-ness kinda grows because of the mound of wrapped presents sitting in front of us and the organization disappears.  Haha!  It's so much fun! ;)

Here's some pictures from Christmas Eve:
All six of us grandkids.

Goofy picture! ;)

I just had to post this.  Hahaha!  My brother is seriously a goof-ball.  100% ;)

My family <3

So, that was Christmas Eve. :)  It was awesome!

Now, onto Christmas Day.  Guess what!  You'll never believe it!  My dreams came true!  We had a white Christmas for the first time in six years!  Here's some pictures: 

Isn't it so pretty?!

On Christmas Day, we woke up at 8 o'clock on the dot, because Mom said we couldn't get up any earlier. ;) Haha!  Which was fine with little brother ended up getting me up.

First, we sang "Happy Birthday" to Jesus.

And then we opened our stockings. :)  We have 10 stockings.  Six, for all of us (Dad, Mom, me, Zach, Annie, and Logan) and then three for the dogs (Nickel, Nellie Mae, and Nyle) and, last but not least, one for our fishies. ;)  If you look in the picture, mine is the really long one.  Haha!  I hadn't emptied it yet.

After we went through our stockings we went on in to the living room and opened our presents!

As you can see, we're all like half asleep. ;)

Nyle is in the middle of it all.  Hehe :)

Then we called up my family and they came over and we had a big Christmas feast!

A big 'ol stack of yummy waffles!  Mmm!

Hehe ;)  Can't forget the chocolate!

I also thought I'd share some of the things I got for Christmas. :)  What did you get?

iPod dock!

Some really cute boots!

I love these movies!

My favorite perfume :)

This amazing hat that I received from my BFFE (best friend for eternity), Kaela. <3

Some clothes!

So, that's what I received. :)  Among other things like:
  • Point of Grace Christmas CD
  • Hobo gloves
  • Warm Vanilla Sugar lotion and body wash
  • A head band
  • jewelry
  • Lots of money ;)
I wore this bow on my shirt all day. lol 

All six of us on Christmas day. :)

I hope you had a great Christmas!!  Feel free to comment and tell me about it.
