Gift given to Meg tonight (she collects all things Nativity) - It is original artwork by her friend Ashley Flores. I thought it was so neat I had to blog it.
Wizard of Oz Bobbleheads
The coolest gift(s) ever!! Kyle and my mom got these for me and Kyle and Meg sent me on a scavenger hunt all over the house searching for them all. I love them!! And the best part is I have the whole set!

The kids are in euphoria - Maiya's eyes began to glaze over and she went down for a nap an hour early. The trampoline came in two boxes - one is for the safety enclosure. The first thing out of Benjamin's mouth "Wow he got us two trampolines!!"
Thanks for all of the gifts Nana and Grandma!

Aunt Meg, Aunt Beth and Ella went to see Nutcracker. I opted out and Benjamin and I went to the arcade. Daddy got Maiya duty! But I think he enjoyed the peace for a little. We are in full Christmas mode - We had our turkey dinner yesterday and have stayed up late two nights playing cards and board games. Aunt Beth leaves Christmas day so we are doing some celebrating a little early. The kids are dying to open gifts but that we are saving!!

We "heart" our fireplace!

I can watch a fire in the fireplace (and the Christmas tree for that matter) as if it were the TV. The kids have caught on to this and seem to enjoy it as much as me.
