Christmas 2011

 We had a fantastic Christmas.  I had tons of help getting set up.  I think Tyler spent an hour getting in and out of the ornament bin.  Thank heavens for plastic ornaments because they have been thrown, have small bites out of them, etc.

Austin was excited to help string the lights on the tree (while sporting my boots and undies) and gave Tyler a hard time if he touched any of it.

We made hot chocolate and our famous carmel corn for the neighbors. 
We also made reindeer food (oatmeal mixed with magic glitter) so the reindeer wouldn't forget to drop Santa at our house.  

Can you feel the excitement?

 Santa didn't forget our house and brought us lots of presents.

 Since Christmas was on a Sunday this past year we opened presents in two parts.  We woke up, opened our stockings and then left for Church.
When we came home we opened our presents and then went into our backyard to find one more surprise from Santa... A TRAMPOLINE!  Thank you Santa, I think the boys and I love it equally.  It is wonderful to get them out of the house and rid them of energy AND have them love every minute of it!
