A Very Merry and Blessed Christmas!

Christmas morning was wonderful! I was able to get up before the family and start my breakfast casserole for brunch. Britton was next to wake up and Santa gave her the Minnie Mouse kitchen. She ran up to it and checked out every aspect of it.  Holland and Kirk got up and Holland saw that Santa left her the Barbie dolls she asked Santa for.  We gave Holland a mini iPad and Britton the LeapPad2, and both girls loved them!  I love Christmas morning hairdos!  Holland is a crazy sleeper and her hair is always crazy in the morning.

After cleaning up the living room and bundling up, we headed over to Gaga's for Christmas presents and brunch.  The girls loved their clothes and toys!

It was so wonderful to have a White Christmas!  So beautiful and peaceful! 

After brunch and naps, we played Just Dance 4.  Britton had the most fun of anyone.  She danced her little booty off! 

We cooked our traditional supper, ate together, played cards, watched movies, and hung out some more.  It was great spending the whole day with family and being snowed in.

Church Christmas Program

Holland was in our church Christmas program this year.  She was so excited to be the horse!  She was with three of her cousins, who were all stable animals.  Too cute!  Here are the girls before going to church for the program.


Holland is the tallest kid/animal in the stable animals.  She practiced her songs and animation for a few weeks before the program.  She did great! 
This is after the program.  Holland's cousins are the two kids (Shelby the cow and Carson the horse) to the left of Holland and the kid (Colbie the lamb) to the right of Holland.  They all had a blast doing this program together.

Fantasy of Lights - 2 trips

Kirk and I took the girls to the Fantasy of Lights just for the four of us.  The girls had a blast.  Of course, I never can get a picture with both of them looking at the camera and smiling at the same time. 

Cousin Catherine and her son, Andrew, came in for Christmas so we met for dinner at El Chico's and then went to the Fantasy of Lights.  At El Chico's, Britton ate a whole bowl of chips herself.  I think the waiter filled our bowl of chips 3-4 times.  At the Lights, Holland wanted to be the big sister and held Andrew's hand and walked him through the lights.  Britton would hold on a little, but she's quite independent and wanted to lead the pack.  They all had a blast!
