Merry Christmas!

We could not have asked for a better Christmas!

                   Here is a mini-scrapbook of the day...

We started by opening presents at our house.... there were a few things that the girls were definitely excited about (as you can tell from the picture of Bekah) but the big moment of the morning was when we took them outside to see their new swing set!!! With the help of Grandpa and Grammy Nelson we were able to purchase this very exciting surprise. And it was even more exciting that we kept it a surprise! Josh and his dad set it up on Sunday and the girls had no clue! Bekah was even hesitant to leave to go to Grandpa and Grandma's for more presents. I think she thought the swing set might disappear if we left it. So after explaining that it is ours to keep and she can play on it EVERY day..... she was ready to go onto the next gift exchange....

DSC_2527 She was not disappointed... we went over to my parents house and had a wonderful time. It was quite a full house this year!

This was Anna's #1 gift EVER!!! She loved her Mickey car! She has found every button on it and loved being pushed around the house, while honking the horn! I don't think I have ever seen her like a toy this much... so thanks Grandpa and Grandma..... it's a winner!


We had a great day... Bekah helped Aunt Becky and Grandma in the kitchen. She made the salad.









Here Bekah is showing off her stylish outfit! The boots are from Mommy and Daddy..... oh how I wish they came in my size! ;)

This is our attempt at a family picture. As the family gets bigger all we can hope for is EVERYONE in the same photo.... everyone looking and smiling at the same time is just too much to ask. :)










After a delicious dinner of prime rib, turkey and lots of yummy sides we decided we should burn some calories..... so we took a walk. Our friends the Lee's were at Riva's parent's house, just a 3 minute walk from my parent's house..... so we dropped in to say Merry Christmas!


After our little stroll we came back to my parents and played a rousing game of Charades!

What a wonderful day we had! Good family, good food, good friends, great weather, gifts and most of all a GLORIOUS REASON TO CELEBRATE!!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!
