Merry Christmas

Our Christmas
In completely random order
We had a wonderful Christmas. We are all truly so blessed beyond words. Our first family celebration was on Monday night and concluded tonight. While I am ready to get Christmas behind us and prepare for the big upcoming events of the new year, I'm always sad to see it go. We hope everyone had a spectacular Christmas filled with joy!
Very neat gift Kollin got from John's sister -Create your own parchment paper document

My two happy little guys! Karson & Karly

My big girls - Karly & Karaline (Poor Karaline bonked heads with Karson on Christmas Eve and got an egg on her eyebrow. Of course it settled into her eye and looks horrible today.)

Karaline bouncing way too high on Kemry's trampoline

Karson - monkey see monkey do LOL
Mister handsome
You can really see her eye here
Kemry loves her trampoline - one more way to burn off energy, YES!
One of our family gatherings here...I loved seeing all the kids playing so well together ranging in ages from 2 (THREE 2yr olds) to 13.
Karson hears a Who
Ladies & Gentlemen, this is NOT what Santa left behind. This is what a set of grandparents and a couple of aunts left behind in Christmas Eve before Santa even came! The gifts extended 10ft from the tree one one side and 8ft on the other side.
My grandmother and my sister, Kasey (Alex's mommy)

Wonderful pictures Kelly! I love the picture of the tree and presents. It looks like a card. Poor Karaline and her eye. Looks like the trampoline looked like a big hit. Kemry looks so different with her hair down. She is beautiful. The kids are all getting so big.

Could you please send some of that sunshine my way. It's cold and rainy here.

Happy New Year!
