A Very Merry Christmas!

Thanks to the generosity of some very dear friends, we all had a very merry Christmas! We are so blessed to have so many looking after us. The kids got exactly what they wanted. I loved seeing all their expressions, since they all knew we didn't exactly have a Christmas present fund this year.

Thomas has some odd domestic fascination with our vacuum cleaner, so for months I planned on getting him a toy one. He was SO excited (this is Thomas excited, yet being modest for the camera) and played with that vacuum for 4 hours straight til I took him to take a nap. He almost had to take it to bed that night. He has now finally taken an interest in his new Veggie Tales.



The girls really wanted American Girl dolls. Here is Bethany with "Kaya".



Brooke wanted "Felicity" since her hair is similar to her own. She kept looking at her wrapped package and just knew it was a "cameran" doll, as she calls it, just because she wanted it so bad. Oh, the childlike faith!

And, here are the three oldest with some gaming miniatures they'd been hoping for.



We rounded out the day with dinner at our friends' house, along with two other couples and their children, playing Wii, pool and eating plenty of dessert.

Well hello there! Your son and his vacuum cleaner are precious! I have been thinking about getting one for my soon-to-be 2 year old, and this seals the deal! Glad your Christmas was very merry...God bless and happy new year!
