Christmas 2011

Even though I already blogged today. I was determined to get my Christmas post done before the weekend so I don't get too behind.
Christmas was a blast this year. The kids understood and enjoyed it and we always enjoy seeing their faces light up and teaching them about our Savior.
Santa was very generous this year and brought Petey and Pinkalicious bike and Spidey a Toy Story scooter. One of my kids REALLY loves their gift, while the other doesn't like it because HE hasn't figured out how to ride it yet. But I'm sure he'll figure it out soon. :)The kids were so exhausted because their silly Uncle Fatty decided to wake them up at 7am. Spidey wasn't quite sure what to think of his stocking and I had to take everything out so he would look at it all. :)Petey, on the other hand, is a pro at this stocking thing and was practically throwing her presents out of the stocking so she could see what she got. Santa knows how much our girly likes Fancy Nancy and put a new book in her stocking!Then it was time to open the first present, which was from Nana and Papa. Can you tell what it is?Mr and Mrs Potato Head! The kids love playing with them. We gave Petey a tag reader (her need gift) but unfortunatly, I got the wrong kind of books so we have yet to use this present. Nana and Papa got the kids a HUGE bin of play doh. The kids have already spend hours playing with this and love it. Spidey's spiritual gift from us was a vinyl sign that I made that reads, "Did you think to pray?". Petey also got a spiritual gift but I didn't get a picture of it. It is a pink CTR necklaces that I made for her with her initial on the back. Petey's favorite gift (her want gift) was this special Rapunzel doll. I've hardly seen her without it ever since she opened it. Spidey's need gift were these fridge phonic magnets. He loves putting the different letters in and listening to the songs. Nana and Papa got our family a waffle maker with circus animal shapes. I can't wait to try it out.Of course, what's Christmas without a new homemade dress from Nana. She always makes the cutest dresses and we love getting them and putting them on our special girl.Uncle Sam got our family some kids games. We got Dont Break the Ice......and Candyland! Petey was most excited about Candyland. :)I had to post this picture of the enormous monkey Uncle Fatty got for his fiance (now his wife), Katie. The thing is huge!Spidey's "want" gift was this awesome John Deere tractor that he can take to the park for some digging. For now, he enjoys pulling it around and around and around the house. :)Isn't this picture of Spidey with his potato head adorable? I love his goofy grin. :)I'm sorry, Katie, but I HAD to post this one. A while after we were finished with presents, Fatty called me into the living room and pointed to Katie, who had fallen asleep spooning with the enormous monkey. It was hilarious. She still doesn't know I took this picture. :)

Christmas was fun and we enjoyed being around family all weekend. We are so blessed and lucky to have so many people that love and care about our family.

And that's how Suze sees it.
