Christmas Pictures

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! We had a great day here! The kids opened presents, we had butter braids for breakfast and then laid around and watched movies while the kids played with their new toys. Later, Frank and I cooked a lot of yummy food. I love that he's back to cook with me... he's a much better cook than I am ;o). After that we watched more movies, played some of the kids' new board games and headed to bed. It was a nice lazy day, which was perfect for us!!

Here are some pictures from our morning... not too many pics of Kass opening presents because she asked for money, so money she got. ;) I guess she's hit the age where cash is best. I did get her a few things though so she'd have stuff to unwrap. She liked it, but she was mostly excited about the cash! haha The kids all got money from grandma too so they are sitting pretty right now. :)

Making Jesus' Birthday cake on Christmas Eve...

Santa was here.

Presents!! And the kids checking out what Santa left

They all got what they wanted! ;) 

Kam has been asking for a metal slinky forEVER! I told him it will be tangled in a week! LOL We'll see! 
Kass' new ornament... 
Kennedy's notebook, which she LOVED! haha 
And Keeghan's new finger monkey, Lulu

Kenn checking out her baby... 
Keeghan with another monkey... 
Kass opening a bracelet 
and Kam with a bacon lollipop. Yum. :oP 

Come to the nerd side. We have Pi.
Kenn loved her new outfit
Kam's new bacon board game (are you sensing a theme yet? LOL)
And Keeghan's monkey blanket from Grandma

Keeghan's dream light from grandma, 
Kennedy's fingernail polish, 
Kameron's bacon candy canes (which he says are not very bacon-y) 
and Kass' new game... we tried it, it's HARD! LOL 

Kennedy's new blanket from Grandma
Kameron's new Lego set, which is already put together
Keeghan's new firetruck
Sweet sisters

Kennedy's new boots! She LOVES these!
Kam was so excited about this Angry Birds game
Keeghan's new monkey clock
Kenn's Justin Bieber backpack

A pirate treasure box for Kam
A new purse with lotion and body wash... 
Kenn checking out her new baby, Emmy
And opening her Hannah Montana styling head (which is kinda creepy). She was very excited!

Kam's bacon shirt and Angry Birds game... it was fun! 
Kenn's new "suitcase" which now holds all her nail polish and lip gloss. LOL 

Modeling her new American Girl coat... Charlie has one too! 
Her Unicorn castle and a jewelry tree for all her necklaces and stuff

Open... Open... Open!!!

So favorite gifts? Kennedy and Keeghan both really like their dream lights from Grandma. Keeghan also really loves his giant monkey and finger monkey. Kennedy is loving her unicorn castle (she's very into unicorns right now) and her baby doll. She of course loves her new boots, too! haha Kameron got a book all about pirates that he really likes and he got a little game that turns his iPad into an air hockey game. The kids have all been having fun with that... mostly for him,  it's been his metal slinky. Go figure!! haha Oh yes, and his plush bacon... I can't forget that! ;) Kass loves her Pi sweatshirt and her duck (she collects them). She also got a new winter coat that looks super cute on her... not sure she cares about that though! ;)

I got them each an "I Like Book" which we will start on January 1st. Every night either Frank or I will write something in each one of their books saying what we like about them... just a small thing. At the end of the year (or whenever they want), they can go back and read it all. I'm really excited to do this and I'm going to TRY not to duplicate any of my "likes" all year long.

Anyway, that was our Christmas. Thanks for sharing it with us!!

It looks like all of the kids had a good Christmas.
I hate to be someone who always bugs about Kellsey, but did she have a good Christmas too? (I think she's adorable - that's why I always ask. _smirk_.)
How many babies does Kenn have now? Does she still play with Charlie? :)
Merry (late!) Christmas, and Happy New Year! :)

You guys are so nice and neat when you open gifts! LOL We make a mess, but we do have trash bags and pick up as we go--or try to. But we're all scattered around the room! LOL

Thanks for sharing your pictures!

FUN!!! Love the bacon and monkey themes for the boys! Makes things fun and interesting! Who knew there was so much bacon merchandise out there!?!? LOL! My favorite pic is the one of Kennedy looking at the Hannah Montana head! TOO FUNNY!!! As usual she is stylin' in her AG coat and hat!! Love that little Diva! Kass has the best of both worlds....all that cash and I'll bet she gets to enjoy the other kids' things a little bit??? Glad they had such a great Christmas....and of course Daddy being home is the BEST!!

Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
Psalms 61:1-4 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

Still here praying hard!
Psalms 40:1-4a I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust...
