Christmas '09

Another Christmas come and gone! We had an excellent first Christmas in our new home and the kids got spoiled again. They got up around 6am but Larry and I did not get up until 7am. We made them wait for us. They are really good about not getting up real early on Christmas morning. We enjoyed taking turns opening our gifts. I must say that I am the one that got the most which never happens but Larry really spoiled me this year. He gave me 2 pairs of boots, which floored me because he hates adding to my collection of over 100 pairs of shoes, a coat, chanel no.5 perfume, a big mirror for my entry, and a couple of new shirts, another thing he hates to buy me! He said its because I love you! Oh how cute is he!! The kids each got a big present, big means cost! Natalia got the lg dare phone that she begged for, for 2 months, clothes from Hollister and Aero, and lotions and hair stuff. Seth got a 1776 piece star wars lego set, wii games, clothes, and a new coat. Ryan got a razor motor scooter, air soft gun, wii games, clothes, and new hat and gloves. We got Larry new tools and clothes. So it was a good Christmas for us. To top off the day Larry made prime rib which was sooo good and we had mashed potatoes, homemade rolls, jello, veggies, and salad. I am very thankful for Christmas not only for the gifts but for our Savior who died for all of us. I am also thankful for the spirit of Christmas that is felt everywhere and for the opportunity for us to give to people in need and for the time we get to spend with our families. I love Christmas!!
