Christmas 2011-Part 1

     For the first time in years we actually had a pretty low key Christmas!!! Which we loved, for the most part, I am one of those that likes "tradition", it bothers me when they change! But it was nice not to have to run from one house to another this year, getting to enjoy our families a little more. Here are some pics of our Christmas!

Christmas morning, a little sleep deprived at 5:30am!!! :)

Santa came!!!

Slow down, mom can't see what your getting!!!! It's like done in 5 minutes!!!

RC car, he was saving for it, but Santa surprised him! :)

All this little boy wanted was a dumptruck and backhoe, Santa delivered!

All this sweet little girl wanted was an iPod! :)

The forced picture in front of the tree!! Are they smiling, they look a little stiff?!?!

I think they were all happy with what they got, makes me happy!!! :)

Introducing Ella!!!!!

     We have a new addition to our little family. We finally got a puppy!!! I have wanted a YorkiePoo for a while now, but really wasn't sure I was ready for another dog. This little puppy came along at the right time though, and we decided to go for it!
This is Ella!!

She is a black YorkiePoo, with a little bit of gray??? Three kids may be giving her gray hair??!!

If you come to our door, this is how she will greet you, she thinks everyone wants to rub her tummy!!!

Here she is on Christmas morning with her new flower bow!!! Oh, and her rhinestone dog bone charm!! Even girl dogs need some bling!!!

She is fitting in with our little family just wonderfully and we are so glad we got her!!!!

Christmas Decorations 2011

     Merry Christmas!!! I know I am way behind, but I want it for my memory! So here is what the house looked like this year. I didn't do as much this year, as I wasn't in the mood...I know terrible, but it's true. So here is what I did put up, I really put up a lot, just not like it was last year!
This is something new I added this year, and I so LOVE it!!! I think it speaks very loud and clear for the meaning of Christmas, most of all "I" Believe in Jesus, and him being the reason for the season, I also Believe in the magic of Christmas. I just love it!!!

Here is my mantel, as you can tell, I painted it! I wasn't going to show this pic, leave it for the the remodeling post, but here it is anyway!

Here is my dining room tree, which I think is my favorite, might just have it next year! :)

This is my big tree, and that is what it is, big, it is getting in my way big time, but I am keeping it all up till New Year's.....


My little kitchen island, which is another thing getting in the way...might be getting moved out too... :(

Kitchen Christmas

New hand towels I got this year, Pier One.

Cooper's tree.

Madi Bell's tree, it's hard to see for some reason???

My Christmas Joy!!!

And there you have it, Christmas Decor 2011!!!

I am going to try to get caught up on this blog thing today before the New Year, wish me luck!!! :)
