"I won!"

Today, my grandmother, aunt, uncle, and cousins came to moms to visit for the holidays. I fixed cheese dip to go with moms chicken spaghetti. We all ate until we couldn't eat anymore and then we opened presents and played card games. I have to say, I didn't realize until today how competitive my family is. There was so much screaming and carrying on, I don't see how anyone could have possibly been able to think about what moves they were making in the games. Anyhow, we had a lot of fun hanging out with the family and playing card games. I can't remember what the name of the game is we played but I'm definately going to have to buy it! After moms, we went to Merry Ann's house for a few minutes. Rachel and Noah wanted to ride with Gracie in the car. The top picture is the three of them. Gracie had so much fun playing with the kids! She still hasn't taken a nap so she should sleep well tonight! Here are a few pictures Damon, my uncle, took.

All I have to say about these two pictures is..... what a dork!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is finally here! Gracie had a great time opening her presents! She had extra presents this year. She has accomplished everything this year that a toddler has to accomplish (except sleeping in her own bed but that's our fault :)). So she had plenty of presents to open! Santa brought her a Dora bike she wanted and a few other toys. Her daddy got her a 26" flat screen t.v. for her room. We went and ate lunch at my cousins house but other than that, she's been playing with her new toys all day. I've been trying to pick up empty boxes and trash and clean the house up a little bit, but it doesn't seem like I'm getting anywhere! You know I feel like I have three kids! They all leave their toys, trash, and clothes laying around. I finally gave up since the house wasn't looking any better. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow. Enjoy a few Christmas pictures! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and always remember the true meaning of Christmas!

Gracie must have been good this year. Santa brought her a lot of toys!

Gracie loved her vanity!

Jack's first Christmas! He got new inside toys and Christmas treats!

Lip Smackers for a stocking stuffer! She is crazy about play makeup and lip gloss!

I have to say I have the cutest kid ever! I don't think she can get any cuter!

She wasn't supposed to be up on the stairs... She was playing the "nanny, nanny, boo, boo game!"
This kind of picture doesn't happen very often, so we can't leave this one out!

Gracie wanted this bike so bad and I was so glad she could push the pedals!

Christmas is almost here!

Three days until Christmas! Gracie is so excited! I put two trees up this year so I decided to split the presents up so both trees would have presents under them. All of the presents under the nine foot tree are for Gracie! It is killing her! For the first couple of days after I had wrapped her presents, she was constantly asking about her presents. The day I put them under the tree she said, "Mommy, whats in my presents." I said, "they are your Christmas presents." She said, "I know but whats in them?" I said, "I can't tell you, it's a surprise." She began to yell at me and say, " I just want to know what's in them." So when daddy got home he had to make a phone call to Santa. Gracie talked to Santa and Santa informed her that her presents could not be opened until Christmas. After that, she hasn't said another word about opening her presents early! Enjoy the Christmas pictures!

And of course, we can't forget Gracie's beautiful tree!

We went to the square to see the lights last night with Allison and Bentley. The kids had a great time riding the camels and ponies. Here are a few pictures! Enjoy!

I'm going to try and take up the whole "blog thing" so I hope everyone enjoys! Have a Merry Christmas!
