Christmas Day

Christmas Day 2014 was so fun...and hard work to pull off!  Thankfully we had a great elf to help us out.

Santa came!  He brought Owen a mobile work center and surprised Anderson with a puppy!  And they both got their mini mag lights.




The pictures coming downstairs are all blurry...but Anderson had a perma-grin on his face all day long and kept saying, 'I asked Santa for a helmet, but Grandma gave it to me so Santa brought me a puppy.'

 He asked what the puppy's name was and we told him he needed to give him one...his response, 'Let's call him Anderson.'

 Owen was so happy to get his mobile work center.  Aaron ran an outlet in his closet so he could plug up the power strip...I see lots of 'piddling' in his future.

 His mini-maglight with case and his load rated carabiner...his other 2 requests from Santa.

 This little guy had a hay-day with the wrapping was a crazy morning!

Under armor shirts so they can 'look like daddy.'

Anderson declared that 'Santa is amazing!'


 Anderson wanted a picture with Papa and a sausage ball...

Merry Christmas to all...and to all a good night!

Christmas - Part 2

The Christmas celebrating continued on Christmas Eve.  We enjoyed time with Aaron's family


 Went retro with some rock'em sock'em

 Love Great Grandma Mattie!

And love time with all the cousins...Owen was being attached by all of the girls and they were all loving every second of it!

 Sweet Harper thought it was hilarious to put her headband on Owen.

 The crazy fun chaos of all of the great grandchildren opening their gifts from each other.

And then it was time to hurry home to go to sleep so Santa could come!
