Christmas... a little late I know!

We had a lot of fun this year on Christmas with two more kids to celebrate with! We had Christmas morning at our house. We woke up, opened stockings, and opened presents with the kids. It's so nice to be able to have a little time just for our family! the kids got lots of fun things! Mallory was more interested in eating the paper and the bows then anything, and Layla just wanted to make sure she wasn't going to miss out on anything!! Avery loved ripping open her presents. I think this is the first year she really really enjoyed Christmas! It was so much fun to watch her!

Christmas afternoon we went to my parents house and spent the rest of the day there. Lots of family around! It was fun as usual. The kids love being able to play with all their cousins! And of course there is a lot of treats to go around!! The girls opened up a few things when we first got there. Avery was especially happy with the tinker bell doll she got from her Nana I think! She hasn't put that thing down for a second since she got it lol!

After Christmas day we got together with Chad's parents at our has and had a great time with them too! Of course there was a little pinochle, and a lot of laughs. Avery had definitely figured out the present opening thing by then and was ready to go when she saw them come in with presents!

All in all it was a great Holiday season! We had fun on New years with Jeff, Jani, and Brian! And today we celebrated the twins 1st birthday at my mom's house! It's been a busy couple of weeks!! I'll be posting a birthday blog in a day or two!! I can't believe they are 1!
