Christmas Pics (finally)

We had a great Christmas with our own little family. On Christmas Eve, Reese turned 7 months old. Traditional Christmas Eve: a feast of snacks for dinner (Benj's fav is my cheeseball) , Christmas movies {Elf}, stories read by Daddy, including Jesus' birth from the Bible and opening jammies

LEXI- Santa gifts (she asked for a purple guitar {her old one got smashed} and a camera)

AVA- asked Santa for a Tangled doll and a pet dog

REESE- Santa gifts

She had fun mostly playing with all the wrapping paper. :)

I love getting shots of the mess afterwards. Benj spoiled me {LOVING my Kindle}. He got us an awesome new camera... can't wait to figure out how to use it so I can actually post better pics! I'm so grateful for this past holiday season and memories made. I love that my girls ask for such simple things, it's so sweet... we know it will get more costly with age. :) We are also grateful that Benj's parents, sister and niece were able to come down the day after Christmas and spend time with us! {Those pics are on our NEW camera :) } We spend NYE with friends, eating, playing games and drinking sparkling cider. NY Day was too COLD for our annual hike, so we went bowling. :) Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year to you all!
