Merry Christmas late!

We hope that everyone had a Very Merry Christmas filled with family and love. I hope that we all remebered the true meaning of Christmas as we celebrated. I am so thankful for this time of year and the joy it brings to all of us.

We had a wonderful Christmas and here are a few pictures from that fun morning! They are in the wrong order, but I am too lazy to fix them.

Here is Steve having more fun with the toys than the kids. Steve has always loved Nerf guns.

Another of Steve with the Nerf gun. You wouldn't know that it is actually Andrew's present.

Alex eating wrapping paper. Yum!

Andrew with his new Hot Wheels set.

Malea with her Cabbage Patch kid. Lilly Paula is her name. I think she is very cute.

Alex wasn't too sure about the whole unwrapping presents thing, but he remained happy and loves his new toys.

Malea's new dollhouse. Andrew likes it as much as she does, and they have been playing with it non-stop.

Before the chaos began.

Christmas Pictures

This morning I decided that I needed to get pictures done for our Christmas cards. It was definitely interesting. Andrew and Alex were sick all weekend, Andrew with the stomach flu and Alex with croupe. Needless to say, it was not a fun weekend and today they were both still a little bit grumpy and not feelin 100%. I got them all bathed and dressed and told them they just had to be cute for a couple of pictures. This is some of what I got. I do think they turned out pretty cute, even if they are not perfect, and of course at least one of them looks goofy in each one. That's kids for you. I've also learned that the more kids you add, the less likely you're going to get a really great shot.
