Christmas 2012

I cannot believe Christmas has come and gone already. It was such a fun Christmas this year. The kids were old enough to understand it and that made it that much more fun. Christmas Eve we spent just hanging out and getting last minute things done. That evening we had a great Christmas Eve dinner and then they got to open one gift. It was of course their pjs. They also got a Christmas light scavenger hunt so that when we went out looking at lights they could check of certain items on their list. 

 That night it was so so so cold but Santa was able to get our trampoline in the backyard. He also gave the kids a great Christmas.

 Christmas morning was so much fun. The kids didn't get up super early which made things so much nicer.
 The kids got everything they wanted

 This is an Allen tradition we started last year with our kids. They all lay under all the wrapping paper and pop up...

Curtis surprised me this year. He got my a full outfit that he picked out. Jewelry and all. I couldn't believe it. Then I got him skydiving tickets to go with his brothers soon. It truly was a wonderful Christmas.

 Ridge loves his hulk mask
 These girls spent probably over an hour doing each other's hair and makeup. So cute to see this bond grow.

 The whole day it was SO cold so they only enjoyed pieces of the trampoline but hopefully it will warm up soon so they can really have fun.

It was such a fun Christmas. Makes me even more excited for next year. Love this time with my kids and I am trying to treasure it the best I can. I am one lucky mom to have such a wonderful family.
