Wrappin' It Up!

Well, the pictures I showed you last week about our Holiday Activities pretty much covered about the first week of December! It took me this long to edit/resave all the photos from the rest of the month. Get comfy! Here is how we finished up the rest of our December Days.

A few decorations around the house.

 Gingerbread cookies and decorating thanks to DaddyO!

A special night out. First dinner....... 
 then tons of Christmas lights...

 And a carriage ride!
 We didn't have to wait in line AT ALL, so there was no time to explain to Daisy what was about to happen. We all piled in to the carriage and headed on our way, only to have The Little Miss start screaming at the top of her very frightened lungs! I was terrified that she was going to spook the horse! We eventually calmed her down and we all enjoyed the rest of our ride!!

A Christmas Eve bike ride to the park. Yep, a few
of those cuties are wearing short sleeves!

Christmas Eve tradition: open 1 present.
 Lily knew the drill, Daisy was oblivious, but the boys were PISSED that I got to pick the present. Only the package with sleepy eyes on the gift tag! New Jammies!




The older kids woke us up at 7:30am Christmas morning. Not too bad! We had to wake-up Miss Daisy.

Lily got a new bike!
 Even though he said he didn't like "Justin Biever," Ashton
hasn't stopped listening to him on his new mp3 player!
 Bailey, pretty much, hasn't removed the headphones from his ears or the robe from his body since Christmas Day!
 Daisy got her new kitchen that she practiced asking Santa for but when it came time to actually ask him, she covered her eyes with her hands and wouldn't say a word! LOL

And that is the end!

Oh what awesome Christmas memories you guys are going to have. Bless Daisy's heart being scared of the carriage ride.

What a fun Christmas. I like the idea of a carriage ride. I love the family ornament!!!

Rachel said...

I love all those pictures! And those short sleeves? See, I told ya you didin't have a chance to miss summer! :)

The carriage ride sounds awesome! Glad the horse was bomb-proof and hope Daisy enjoys it next time!

Glad your Christmas was so fun! Is it a bad thing that I'm a wee bit jealous of Daisy's kitchen? :)

Angie Vik said...

I enjoyed the peek into your holidays. I'm jealous you can wear short sleeves on Christmas Eve. I love your decorations, especially the family ornament.

Where did you get the basket for Lily's bike? I want one for mine and I love the size of hers. (And we have almost the same bike but mine isn't so shiny.)

And stupid question- I bought my boys Ipods because I couldn't figure out how to put music on MP3's since they aren't compatible w/Itunes. So how do you do it?

Brandi said...

Aw, great Christmas! Is it just me, or were your xmas tree lights insanely bright? I laughed that the boys weren't excited about pj's. ;)

Tiffany said...

Oh man our girls were giddy about their pjs! Guess that's the difference between boys & girls!

Emmy said...

Looks like a great Christmas

Great pics, looks like you all really had a great time!!!
I've been trying to find it on your blog, but where do you live that you can wear short sleeves for Christmas?

Kim said...

Looks like a really fun December! I have always wanted to go on a carriage ride. I love Lilys bike and Daisy's kitchen! Mason would fit right in with your boys, he could live in his robe :).

Hope you weekend is going great. I am just heading out for some shopping with Jodee. You will be there in spirit!
