Christmas Morning, 2012

 Is it really the middle of January already?!? Yikes! Well, here's a little look back at our Christmas morning... I still remember the fun, smiles and laughter! And- I'll admit- I miss our Christmas tree. The living room just looks empty without it. But our neighbors behind us still have their gigantic 20-foot tree up which we can see out the back window- so I can get my fix! ;) Hope you also are still savoring the joy from your Christmas celebration!
First peek at the presents! Ready, set, GO... ;)

Scooters! Oh yea!! These kids have been scootering it up ever since! 

Santa brought Rosemary her own chair! (So she'll stop kicking the big kids out of theirs!! She's a bit of a little bully...)

"I got it!" She was not shy about opening presents. And it was so helpful to have so many elves in the room to help unleash the toys from their boxes as they were opened!

The best gift of all- little smiles in a box!! :)

Thank you to Uncle T, Uncle Jon, Uncle Michael and Aunt Heather for being with us for Christmas morning! It was so so awesome to share it with all of you- AND all four grandparents!! What a blessed family we are!!

Merry Christmas Papa and Nana!
Merry Christmas Uncle Michael, Grammie and Grandad!
Hmmm, which 'stach in most realistic? Lincoln's, maybe?? ;)

"Ummm- who are you? And where's my daddy?"
 Over at Grammie and Grandad's house, Santa had brought a BIG gift for the yard! Monkey bars, slide, swings- oh my!! The kids have been loving the new 'Bush Park... :)

I don't even know why I try to do family pictures sometimes... I promise this was the best one- sorry Georgia! And, actually, I totally give her a pass- about an hour after the below picture in front of the nice fire, she was passed out on the couch, burning up with fever, looking miserable, while the rest of us enjoyed Christmas dinner! She even missed the final wave of present-opening. Poor thing- it stinks to be sick on Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all- a fever-free night!!
