Happy Christmas 2012

 Josh woke me up about 8 am...he said" mommy, get up, I am ashamed of ourselves, 8:00? I can't believe we "slept" in!

 Our poor, poor dead tree... I guess even with all the watering, over a month in our dry, dry house did it in...It was a great tree.
 Rowan's present was bigger than him!  He did not understand what we were all doing...but he loved all the paper!
She was thrilled with her ipod!

 D and D books and all new computer happy guy...

 Mara could not believe the stash of nail polish...

 Wii games, ipod and a new phone for Aspen!

 American girl doll stuffs...

 Rowan loved all of his gifts...Thank you family for everything!

yessss, more paper!

Such a happy little guy!

The aftermath...

 Time for the stockings!

 Maggie and Junie loved their bones...and even Snowy liked his new outfit!

 And Rowan LOVES his swing!!
Hope your Christmas was magical!

Christmas Goodies

 As usual, Christmas cookies, pretzel treats and this year some toffee crisp were made...
Rowan settled for a fist to eat...mean old mama not letting him have cookies :)

 And delivered to the neighbors...

 And taken to Grandma and Grandpa's to share on Christmas Eve...
Of course a few were left for Santa that evening too.
