Christmas Day 2011

 The kids surprisingly slept until about 7:30.  I had given them specific instructions to not go downstairs without first coming and getting Dan and I out of bed first (I didn't want to miss their expressions!  It's my favorite part!)  So once they got us up we all went downstairs to see what Santa brought! 

Ariel got an easy bake oven for Christmas!  She was very excited!

Santa even brought another gift and stuffed it into the garage!  He is so sneaky! 

So blessed!  Look at all those presents!

Caleb got TONS of new star wars legos!  He played with them all day! 

My mom got Caleb and Ariel all new things of play-doh!

More Lego Playing!

Reading his new Star Wars Encyclopedia on the trampoline!

Ariel and I Easy Bakin!

Red Velvet Cupcakes!  My favorite!

Adding the frosting!

And the sprinkles!

Ta-da!  She did wonderful!

Serving them to Caleb!

And her daddy!
 After a day of playing all day with all of their new toys, my mom and I were in the process of putting together a wonderful Christmas dinner.  We had ham, chicken and dressing (AMAZING!!!), purple hull peas, creamed potatoes, sweet potato casserol and rolls!  We had Coca-Cola Cake for dessert and sang happy birthday to Jesus and blew out the candles for him!

That night there was more playing!  Here's a few more videos!

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!  We are so incredibly blessed!
