Merry Christmas 2009!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone had a great holiday! Ours was a blast! Here is Tim leaving a snack for Santa. Topher was so tired, he didn't want to come out. He did write a note for Santa and he gave it to me to put with the snack.

When we woke up the next morning, it was gone!

Santa had left a note for Topher!

Christmas dogs!

You know how there are people that always have their eyes closed in pictures? They are ultra sensitive to the flash. Well, that is Gizmo. I must have taken about 5 pics of him before I got him to keep his eyes open. They were so funny (although he probably doesn't think so!) I finally got smart and turned the flash off!

Well, as the following pics will show, my kids cleaned up! Notice their "interesting" faces when they pose!

I was afraid it was going to be a VERY LEAN Christmas out our house this year. I know it has been for a lot of us. Fortunately, Santa was able to pull it out of his booty one more year and make it great for our kids. We did, however, reflect on how lucky we are, and that Santa may not have been able to do that for all families. We count our blessings everyday! Merry Christmas!
