Christmas Day - pictures

As it turns out...SANTA found our house & ate our cookies! The kids wrote notes & drew pictures for Santa, and wouldn't ya know it - he left a "Thank You" note for them on the backs of their cards! What a nice Santa!
Anson wasn't feeling well in the middle of the night and climbed into bed with us but kept me up from 4-5am. So, when the kids woke up at 7am, we weren't ready to get up yet. They bugged us until we finally rolled out of bed around 8:30am. The kids couldn't wait to show us what Santa had brought them!

Surprisingly, Santa brought everyone exactly what they had asked for. He must've thought they were REALLY good!

Felicia got her fabulous Metal Detector she was dying to have!
Here she is searching for metal treasures!
Nathaniel was thrilled when he opened his Nerf Longshot Dart Gun!
Check out how BIG that thing is!

Anson LOVES his Diego Backpack
Ashley got her beloved My Little Pony blanket & DVD
The Boys got the Girls Silly String
Needless to say, it was all over the house! Oh well, it was FUN!
Nathaniel also got another set of Dart Guns w/ matching vests

Here's the BIG FOOD spread at my parents' house
My parents' Christmas tree
Anson, Ashley, Auntie Christy, Nathaniel & Felicia
Felicia received a nice digital camera from Grandma & Grandpa, so she followed me around taking pictures of everyone last night! She LOVES her camera & taking fun pictures!
Auntie Christy gave Nathaniel & Anson some edible BUGS. ha ha :)

Grandma & Grandpa gave Anson his own Basketball Hoop & ball. He LOVES it!
ME, Mom, Christy
My Mom & Dad
Ben, Anson, Erik (Ben's brother). Erik came by last night just in time to help us unload our car as we got home from my parents' house. And he brought us yummy chocolate peanut butter treats!
