Christmas Cheer

We had a wonderful Christmas season this year and you all know that I took a TON of photos. Especially given the fact that I had a new lens! I won’t bore you with all of them, but I will share some highlights over the next few days.

We had our Christmas with Ronnie’s family on the 22nd. They spoiled the kids rotten as always! The girls got clothes from Justice and they all got new jammies. They got video games galore and girly lotion and lip gloss. All good stuff.

We went outside to play football because my father in law gave Brandon a new one for Christmas. The girls were wearing mini-skirts but they had thick tights on underneath. It was actually pretty cold. We were all laughing at their stylish football uniforms.

We also celebrated Ronnie’s 33rd birthday. Yes, he’s getting seriously old! He had a lot of help blowing out the candles. We were concerned that he wouldn’t be able to manage it without help. Ha!

Ronnie’s parents posted a mystery game on the wall when we got there and it drove the kids crazy. Of course, I already knew what the puzzle said. We’ve waited three months to tell the kids! Here’s Alexis with her best puzzled face…

We are going to Disney World!!! They read it and said, “Oh we solved the puzzle.” “This is what it says.” They didn’t understand at first that we’re actually going sometime in 2013! When they got it, they went INSANE. There was a lot of jumping and shrieking. They were very excited. The last time we went Brandon was only 18 months old so I don’t think he remembers much at all. I’m so looking forward to going! It killed me to keep it a secret for so long.

I’ll be back tomorrow to post the rest of our Christmas adventures!
