Christmas morning

Ashlee and Jaron checking out what Santa brought.  She was so excited she got the exact Hello Kitty car she had asked for.

Jaron with his gifts from Santa and mom n dad.
 Bryson's gifts.  He was being a stinker and not staying in the picture.
 Ashlee with her gifts.  She must of been a very good girl this year.  Santa spoiled her!
 After we opened presents we headed over to my folks house and had a yummy breakfast.  Dad made his famous crepes.

Holiday Traditions

It is so fun when the holidays come and we do our family traditions...Some things we do are bake my aunt Peg's sugar cookies; make homemade candy with my mom and grandma; read Christmas stories each night; see lights; write letters to Santa and build gingerbread houses. A new tradition we started recently is each Monday night (our family night) leading up to Christmas we read of the birth of Christ and have the kids open a family gift.  This year the kids got a Christmas game, a video, and gingerbread house kits.  Its always a gift we do as a family right after they open it.  The kids love it.  Here's some pics of our traditions this holiday season...

Ashlee was so excited that she could write her own letters to Santa this year.  Love her little 5 year old writing!
