Our Christmas

For our Christmas this year we were in Illinois. Christmas Eve we went to The Chapel, our church, with my parent's and my sister and brother-in-law. After church we headed to our house for some pot roast. The next morning the kids, Chevy, and I opened gifts from each other. Then we later went to my parent's house with the fam and opened gifts.
Daddy and his little girl

Avi and Anderson are waiting to open their presents. They are so giddy that they are hugging each other! Each of the kids got a big gift from us and here are the gifts. It was so fun to see their faces!

Anderson received Rescue Hero stuff. We actually got all these action figures and motor vehicles from Craigs List. Anderson just loved it and was shaking with excitement. It was funny, but two weeks prior to Christmas he found his gift in the backroom of the basement. I kind of just tried to skirt around the question and thankfully he didn't go back to look for it later. I need to hide the gifts better!

Our sweet Avielle just loves babies, so for Christmas we got her a changing table with a highchair and a little bath. She too just loved it and we put it up in her bedroom to enjoy. Lately every night she has asked if she could play with her baby and changing table instead of going to bed. Of coarse I usually give in and tell her 5 minutes of play and then bedtime. I hope this doesn't turn into a habit! From my mom she also received Baby Alive who actually eats and poops. I know, Poop!?!? Not that I have be deal with poop from my kids and now from the doll! J/K, but not really!

Our little Ellie received a pretty pink kitchen. When we put it in her room she started jumping around and showing off for her daddy!
