Christmas 2007

Here is our Christmas tree on Christmas eve night. My parents are here, so they made sure the tree was well-stocked with presents.

This is Austin's presents from Santa. It is a Fisher Price Play 2 Learn keyboard and activity desk. And of course, the big dumptruck! He loves his new truck!

This is Jonathan's Santa stash. He has been wanting to have a band for a while, so Santa brought him a drum set, an electric guitar (not a real one, but one programed with songs and sounds). He also got a remote control truck. Talk about racking up this year!!!

Megan, the baby girl, got a new baby that talks and moves, a backpack carrier for the baby, and a Glo Bear. She is my only girl still into the real girlie stuff. They grow up so fast!!!

Here is Allison's stuff from Santa. Being a teenager, she racked up on the clothes this year. Santa brought her som enew jeans and a couple of cute tops. She also got a big teen style doll and the American Idol karaoke game for the tv.

And here is Kailyn's pile from Santa. She got the Dreamlife Superstar, a big teen style doll, a Bratz MP3 player (with speakers), and few clothes. I think they all did pretty good.Santa must be pretty forgiving! LOL

Here's Jonathan jamming with his new guitar. He LOVES it. Talk abotu putting on a show. He is going to be a rocker for sure! LOL

The boys also got this tee-ball set. It is the Grow2Pro by Fisher Price. They have already been slamming the balls with it. I think we definitely see tee-ball or baseball in out near future for these boys.

Miss Megan posing with her new baby. SHe loves playing Little Mommy!

Kailyn decided to take abreak ont he couch. It was quite an overwhelming morning! LOL
Little Man, Austin, got a Happy Feet floor music keyboard. He also got the dressup stuff to be Mumble. He LOVES penguins right now, so this was right up his alley. He was so cute dancing on his mat!
And lastly, here is my big girl herself. Allison enjoyed the morning but tried as hard as she could to hold the enthusiasm inside. After all, teenagers can't act like little kids....if she only knew what being grown up was really about...

Anyway, it was overall a good Christmas. Jason called just after we finished opening everything. We all got to talk to him. It was great to have him be a part of our day, even though he was not here. It has been a great distraction to have my parents here, but it doesn't fill the whole in my heart. I miss Jason so very much. I pray every day that he will be safe and home in my arms again soon.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I will have more misc pics posted in the next day or so. I am a little behind, but am trying to get caught up. I never even sent out Christmas cards....SORRY! Maybe we will have New Year's cards this year.....
