Joy to the World!

I am going to try and speed-wrap/warp all of the rest of our Christmas festivities!  Have I mentioned Preston loves to eat?

IMG_0970I was a little jealous of Kate’s gift. It is a doll wardrobe with a bed and vanity. Absolutely precious…and I wish I had one when I was little!

And Dad really played up the part….he had his arm out the window for at least 20 minutes waving at the city of Memphis.IMG_1044Santa picking on Jake:

Joey and I were intense about something:IMG_1107

and then came…

 

Christmas Morning!!

Our kiddos were very good this year! Kate got a baby bed handmade by Santa himself, a stroller, and a chair. Preston got a baseball glove, a basketball goal, and a chair too!IMG_1109

Kate also had a special surprise waiting for her in her room:

A purple tree!IMG_1117

We woke the kids up, and Preston was not happy that Daddy left him to get the camera:IMG_1122

And then they saw:

The room was full of bubbles!

Miss Mommy had to immediately go get two babies to put in her stroller ( I had my eye on a beautiful, frilly pram, and this is the one she had her heart set on!)IMG_1155 

Stocking goodies:

and Santa remembered that cup she had seen at Disney World!IMG_1162 She put her stocking on the bottom bunk, and babies on the top:IMG_1176 IMG_1183

We got dressed and headed to my parents for more gifts.

Santa always leaves a letter about our “big gift.” Sometimes it was a trampoline, a few years ago he lefts puppies. This year, it was a BOAT!! Come on summertime!IMG_1215 IMG_1216

Finally, a cute family pic!

and no one got the coal this year (it is usually Luke, but my mom didnt have the heart to give it to him!)IMG_1227

After Christmas Day, we continued our fun with Christmas with the Parsons:

And then the Greenwoods came in town from Texas! I absolutely LOVED watching them love on my babies! (notice Matt in the background “pouting” b/c Will wanted a photo by himself!)IMG_1232

This pic cracks me up:IMG_1233

Matt gets his turn:IMG_1234 IMG_1237

I forgot to post these earlier, but this was our Supper Club Party at Whit’s new awesome house earlier in the month. Her new home is so lovely, I asked if I could come for the weekend. Moongirl sleepover, anyone?PC080017 PC080013

And just some randoms. I loved this outfit on Pres for some reason. We put our Christmas cards on a tree this year. It saved me from crying over broken ornaments, and we could see them and enjoy them all month!

Whew! Typing this all out makes me tired all over again. I am so thankful we have so many friends and family to celebrate the birth of our Savior with.

Blessed be the name of the Lord!
