Happy New Year

This year because of all of the kids we couldn't go out and party so we decided to have our own party. Everyone came over to our house we ate, lit fireworks, played games, counted down the New Year and had a good time.
My little pyro couldn't wait to light the fireworks.

You can't bring in the New Year without sparkling cider!

Poor Daddy didn't make it to midnight. He must be getting old;)!!! Ever since his accident about every couple of months he has a night he just crashes and tonight was one of those nights.
Camree tried so hard to stay awake too but ended up falling asleep at about 11:00 on the couch. Kyson on the other hand stayed up with me and gave me my New Years kiss. I have got to take advantage of that as long as I can. I hope he will always want to kiss his Mom. We have had such a busy, fun, exciting year and have made a lot of happy memories. I can't believe how much my family grows up each year. Happy New Year! Let's see what 2012 will bring us?????

Merry Christmas!

The kids woke us up at 7:30 ready to go and open presents! They had to wait on the stairs while Dad got the video camera ready.
I think someone is happy Santa found us.

It is fun having uncle Jr living with us. Kyson helped him open up all of his presents.

Camree and her doll had matching pj's.

After opening presents we headed off to meet Neema and Papa at church. The whole fam was there, it was fun being together. This year we made all of the girls matching skirts and the boys coordinating ties for Christmas Sunday. They all looked so cute!

Kyson finally has a boy cousin on the Featherstone side and we found out there will be another one too. We are so excited!

It didn't take long for the kids to get back in their pajamas. We ate eggs ala golden rod for breakfast and then it was time for more presents!

My siblings always do a white elephant gift exchange and Rob got that hat. Kyson was so funny he thought that it was so cool and wore it around all night. He does look pretty cute in it.
Later we went over to GG's and Great Pa's for dinner. The day was busy and full of family, food, more food, and presents. I love Christmas but I have to admit I love when it is over. Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve we went to Neema and Papa's for our annual Christmas Eve party! The kids have been counting down the days they are so excited for Santa to come.

The kids opened up their Christmas pj's.

Camree and Kyson got snuggie wraps this year too.
We have decided that now that there are more grandkids we are going to act out the nativity every year. We still don't have enough kids yet so we made the boys fill in. Daddy played a wiseman.
Kyson and Camree played Joseph and Mary.

Jaxon was the perfect baby Jesus.

We had the best Christmas Pageant ever!
And ended the night with flaming snowballs!
We made it home just in time to get in bed and fall asleep before Santa got to our house. Kyson even saw him in the sky coming our way!
