Our day started full force as usual! Matthew up playing with his new remote car from Gpa. It's pretty in the dark!

Daddy went to do some work, Ryan went to Gma & Gpa's to spend the day/night and Miss Adrian came over for ST. They played the Where's My Water game from Uncle Paul and Aunt Diane 1st.

And finished up playing Angry Birds from Gma & Gpa.

Making manicotti for dinner tonight - Yum! Still have presents trickling in from the mail, so that's kinda fun too...

Merry Christmas!!!

Ryan opening this gift from Santa.

Matthew's gift from Santa.

Our Christmas card from this year!

We had a nice relaxing day on Christmas Day. The boys actually slept until 7:30 am. Michael & I had decided to get up and get showered and they woke up then. It was fun trying to get Matthew to wait a bit until we were dressed - LOL! Gma & Gpa came over pretty quickly after the Santa gifts were opened. We made a big breakfast of French Toast, Sausage Bisquick balls and fixings. Then we opened up all the gifts. We were able to Skype with both Michael's family in VT and my brother in CA, which was so nice! Then Gma & Gpa left in the early afternoon and we watched the boys play basketball and play with their new gear.

Tonight we went to a couple of streets that were decorated that we'd never been to before! They were beautiful, again the whole block was decorated - so pretty!

December Daily | Dec. 24th | 2012
The second display block had this in the front yard for photos - a sleigh, a cut out tree and a sled.

December Daily | Dec. 24th | 2012
Dude about got in trouble, for he wouldn't get out of the sleigh...

December Daily | Dec. 24th | 2012
The tree

The sled

A beautiful pointsettia tree

The yard the sleigh, tree and sled were in...

Then we came home and finished up the cookies we'd made, putting a couple on a plate for Santa

I think they turned out kinda nice...

A few photos in front of the tree...

Cookies, milk and carrots



Can you see one of Santa's elves?

Ryan wore his BDU's to school with his new boots that he got for his birthday. Looks kinda official, doesn't he?

December Daily | Dec. 21st | 2012
Matthew came down with croup again last night, which kinda threw a monkey wrench into our plans for the weekend. He had stayed home the day before, because he was acting and looking sick. He'd been kinda "off" all week too. Then we woke up and heard the breathing and the cough. Of course, all the meds that I have for him were expired, so I stayed home to get him to the doc to see if we could still go on with our plans. But in the end, we decided to to cancel and keep him home, which proved to be the right choice.

Micheal and I ended up shopping a bit more today, with the boys going to Gma's for awhile. Smokey has decided that he is a lap dog. After we got home and Michael was trying to relax and watch a bit of TV, this is what happened! LOL! He's decided that when he needs a bit of attention from someone, he'll just crawl right up there. Bella is starting to do it too...

Lazy day around the house today. We moved the Jeep into the garage from the side of the house and Ryan DROVE it around the neighborhood for awhile - 1st driving lessons. He did pretty good... a bit speedy and a little lurchy, but ok generally.
This turned into an quite photo session for the boys. I was trying to get a photo of Ry with the Jeep and everyone else got in on it...

December Daily | Dec. 23rd | 2012
Yep - dirty face from playing basketball, sores on face from picking at them, tired eyes from croup. But still as adorable as can be...

December Daily | Dec. 23rd | 2012
Yes - he does smile!!!! Love my man...

December Daily | Dec. 23rd | 2012
We went Christmas light looking last night and ended up on our favorite street. It's a cul-de-sac that everyone on it decorates. Every year it becomes a bit more of a zoo, but I think we've gone there every year that I can remember since we moved here. These are a mix of camera phone pics and Ryan's P/S.

December Daily | Dec. 23rd | 2012
We were leaving and had crossed the street, when Matthew spotted Santa!!! He was dressed in Harley leather and was out and about checking on children to make sure they were still being good! He called Matthew by name and listened to Matthew's Christmas list again. It was the total highlight of our evening - esp. Matthew's - and I think Matthew made his night too!

Miss Adrian came today for ST and brought a Christmas present for you - 2 new card games! We played the angry birds one that afternoon.

December Daily | Dec. 20th | 2012
A birthday gift arrived in the mail today for Ryan - maple candies from VT and his train game that he wanted!


December Daily | Dec. 18th | 2012

Christmas cards mailed out today...

Today Miss Lynnette brought over a cute Gingerbread man fridge magnet kit to make.

Concentrating hard...

Silly goof always has to show me the glue on his finger...


December Daily | 2012

My Dad called me today on my "Daily" posting - LOL! - so thought I'd catch up tonight...

December Daily | Dec. 8th | 2012
Matthew was invited to a birthday party today. They went "lawn sledding" - AZ's answer to snow sledding...

December Daily | Dec. 8th | 2012
He absolutely loved it!!!!

 December Daily | Dec. 9th | 2012
Deck the Halls! All the decorations went up this weekend.
December Daily | Dec. 10th | 2012
Daddy fixed the basketball hoop. It's up higher than it was, but didn't stop Dude from sinking them...
December Daily | Dec. 10th | 2012
Miss Lynnette brought a cool game for you to play today. You had to roll the dice and then color in the number on the gingerbread man. Whom ever colored it in first, won
 December Daily | Dec. 10th | 2012
Of course, you won!
December Daily | Dec. 11th | 2012
Ho, Ho, Ho!
December Daily | Dec. 12th | 2012
Miss Adrian came today and we played Headbanz. You have the hardest time not telling her what she is...
 December Daily | Dec. 13th | 2012
It just cracks me up that Ryan turns this into his personal countdown for the last couple of years. I took off last year's when I put it out, and within a few days, he'd done it again! LOL!
 December Daily | Dec. 14th | 2012
Not much to say today. Feeling very sad about the tragedy in CT. It rained today in AZ. I think the sky's were weeping too...
 December Daily | Dec. 15th | 2012
We took him out and bought his presents with him, so he had nothgin to unwrap this year! he did get to unwrap Gma & Gpa's presents.
 December Daily | Dec. 15th | 2012
Took all these photos on the 16th when Gma & Gpa came over for cake.
 December Daily | Dec. 15| 2012
He asked for the cinnamon muffins that I make to be made into a cake instead, so we did.
Gpa took him to go see a Christmas train layout too.
 December Daily | Dec. 15th | 2012
Cheating today, for I totally didn't take a single photo. It's Ryan's 15th birthday on the 15th today!
We ate at Chili's on the 16th and he chose the Chocolate Molten cake to have for his treat from Chili's! He tried the pretzel breadsticks from there today too.
 December Daily | Dec. 16th | 2012
Mom and Dad came over tonight for awhile and I helped them with their Christmas letter. They actually had me take a new photo of them too!
