Christmas 2009

Christmas 2009
Kolton's 1st American Christmas.
It took me a while to get these on here, but I wanted to make sure I did. Here is a glimps of the 2009 Cash Crew Christmas.
notice Karaline's blue lips (thanks to blue candy canes) gets harder and harder to get a good family pic. lol

Mindflex gave us some great entertainment!
Uncle Logan, are you focused enough??
Christmas Day at Gran and Grandad's house
Karaline's gift from Santa...yes she asked for a pet RAT. Mama wasn't thrilled at the idea but it really is such a sweet thing. Karly loved it so much she took her Christmas money a couple days later and bought her one too. They really are quite nice....for a rodent.

Christmas morning at home. Kolton's first American Christmas. I think he quickly realized it was overrated. He wasn't ready for it at all. It's so easy to forget when they are adjusting so well that they are still so new to our overindulgent society. He was extremely overwhelmed and didn't enjoy it very much. We scaled back drastically, but it didn't matter.
Our kitty thought the pet rat was for HIM. He still does.
Have you ever seen Kollin with such a HUGE smile???
Christmas Eve...everyone has gone home and we had some great family time to talk about the real meaning of Christmas and why we should, despite all the gifts they had just received (and would receive the next day), focus on Jesus.
Christmas Eve with my side of the family.

Looks like a simply perfect Christmas. Love the looks on all the kids faces, so sweet. Such a cute pic of Karaline and her darling little rat.
Happy New year!!
