Christmas Day

We had a fantastic Christmas day! Gracie actually CHOSE to stay in bed till 7 (the time we normally ask her to stay in bed till, but she rarely does!) She came running in and then we all went to see if Santa came. He did! She was very excited.
Grace was the present hand-er out-er. She took her role very seriously.
She loved opening her presents and was happy with each one. (except the jean leggings. I can NOT get her to wear jeans so I thought I'd try leggings. nope!)
Brother got her a new tea set.

and he got even more blocks!

We had a great day and stayed in our jammies ALL day long. We had turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, and rolls for lunch and watched movies. It was a great day!

On our first real snow day (it snowed before but we didn't see it so we aren't counting it!) The kids made a fort under the counter.
Then we walked over to the office in the snow!
ha! Graham's coat is so big.. I asked Grace to take a picture with him and her arm knocked him down. It was like the little boy in Christmas Story!
We liked making footprints in the snow.
This was just the start of it. We had 9 inches!

See the woodpecker on the feeder?
