December 25th, 2009

We had a nice Christmas with all of the kids. Everyone was up early and ready to open gifts. I thought I would share some of the fun.

Wow, all of these are for me? Where should I begin?

Thank you Grandma Woolley for the yearly Hawkeye ornament.

Carver got a new hammer that makes noise and lights up when you bang it.

Rainbows has been lending us some really neat books. We have to return the books in March. So, with help from Grandpa Woolley and Pat, we were able to purchase 3 of the favorites - That's not my Bear, Something Special, and Geraldine's Blanket. Thank you Grandpa Woolley and Pat.

Kinnick and Carver will be 3 in March. You know what that means....Kinnick has no idea what kind of seat she is sitting on.

Carver got a new toy that we can push up to his big Bumbo seat. It has lots of lights and noises.

Kinnick got a new shopping cart - they start shopping young these days.

Big brother, Hayden wanted to show off his new WII game - Star Wars Clone Wars.

Big brother, Gage wanted to show off his new Ipod Nano.

Big brother, Harrison wanted to show off his new PSP. He got one last year for Christmas and someone stole it at school - bummer.

Big brother, Gregory loves trains and wanted to show off his new LEGO train.

Big sister, Kirsten is finishing her 2nd year of college. She applied to Dental Hygiene school and we are hoping she is accepted. 125 - 150 apply and only 40 are accepted each year. We got her a bigger book bag to carry all of her medical books.

All in all we had a very nice Christmas. Now we need to find room for all of new toys and gifts.

I hope everyone had a very wonderful Christmas!
