Part One of Three

Our Christmas Story is a long one so bear with me and keeping checking in for the next edition.

We start our Christmas story out in Pampa with Mimi, Pawpaw, Uncle Del, Aunt Stephanie, Addison and Brooklyn. Mimi always has fun things and neat stories to share with us at Christmas. She really does a great job of reminding us that Jesus is the reason for the season. The girls started the day by making a gingerbread house. They love this, but I'm not sure if it's the decorating or the eatting of the candy that they love the most. Later that night the girls followed the star to Bethlehem and found Baby Jesus laying in the manager and then they heard a story about a boy named Wally and how he gave up his room at the Inn for Mary and Joseph. We had a great time and got a lot of gifts.

Taking a little break from building to taste test the frosting.

Even Colt got in on the test.

I think it passed!!!

The end results this was right before the roof fell off. :)
Riley had so much fun (or is it the sugar high making her this happy).

Riley really got into the gifts this year. Which I think makes it funner for all of us. Colt on the other hand loved the wrapping paper but not so much the gifts.

Checking Dad's heart with the new Dr. kit.

Brooklyn loves to smell Colt's head it is the funniest thing.

Addison jammin out on her new Hannah Montana guitar.
Well it's Christmas Eve today and we will be home tonight for Santa in the morning (which is part 2 of our Christmas) and then we will head out to Duncan tomorrow afternoon for part 3. I hope that everyone has a Blessed and a safe Christmas. I can't wait to see all the new blogs next week. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!!!!
