CHRISTMAS EVE....

Christmas Eve at our house was very busy and fun...This year we had another child, so everything was alittle more interesting. WE started out by making cookies for Santa, then opened gifts, and ended by reading the Christmas story. What a fun day we had. Nothing makes us happier than to see our children happy. We are soo thankful that Jesus was born! Happy Birthday Jesus!!!!
This pic was suppose to be the last one, but i deleted it, so i had to add it back because I lOVE it. I just love when McCool does this. SOOOOO sweet...Looking up at his dad while he reads...

After reading the story, we put the kids to bed. While waiting on them to go to sleep, Rich went to check on Emma. She was crying when he went in there. She told him she thought she heard Santa and was scared he was going to come in her room. With lots of love and convincing that Santa was not going to come in her room, she finally drifted off to sleep. Now, it was time for Santa to get busy....

Christmas week at our house...

We have been quite lazy this week. Haven't left the house since Sunday. I do need to go run a few errands tonight, though. Since it has been so cold out, we have had to stay inside. Entertaining inside is not too easy, so i take pictures..But, I have been enjoying my babies. They are so fun. And they love each other so much! Here are pictures from us being silly so far. I'm sure there will be many more pictures from this week. WE wish everyone a Merry and blessed Christmas. JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON... my little Santa....
loves to pose...
tired Santa baby...
he sticks his tongue out in every picture now...i think it must feel good to the tooth that is coming in....oh yes, we are getting a tooth!!!
