Christmas Day 2008
Merry Christmas to all! Here are some fun pictures of us opening our presents...yes, there are pictures including the cat, Dotty and the newest addition to our little family, Piper. She was one of the gifts we gave our kids. You should have seen the look on their faces when they came in and saw all the gifts and then they heard Piper's welcoming bark. I guess you will see that look. It's captured somewhere in the two slide shows I've made up. I took over 200 pictures but I only used 100 so you it's not too overwhelming. Just a run down of what everybody got. Jonathan: Wall stickers, LOTS of candy (darn santa...aka me!) a new bike(from Santa), a Helmet (thanks Papa and Gigi) A new shirt (thanks Uncle Garrett, Aunt Krystal and Kamron)A Nerf Dart Gun (THANKS Grandma Lisa, Grandpa Craig and Uncle Marshall), A Hot Wheels car set (Thanks Joyce's Small World and Staff) and Pj's, Puzzles, Slippers, a stuffed Bear(thanks Great Grandma Lish), and a stuffed Dog that sings annoying Christmas Songs...again, that's me. Sabrina: A dog that sings and dances to annoying Christmas songs, A stuffed Piggy(thanks Great Grandma Lish) Play dough(thanks Joyces Small World and Staff) A new shirt (Thanks Aunt Krystal, Uncle Garrett and Kamron) A stuffed Kitty w/bag (thanks Grandma Lisa, Grandpa Craig and Uncle Marshall) A bike (from Santa), Wall stickers, Lots of candy, A Barbie helmet (thanks Papa and Gigi), Pj's and slippers. Now for family Gifts. Garrett, Krystal and Kamron got us a family movie and game night. It had two movies, The Italian Job and Over the Hedge, 2 containers of Hot Cocoa (Krystal know me well) LOTS and Lots of candy, Popcorn and a bowl to put it all in, the game Hungry Hippo (yay because Jonathan was just asking about it. Ours Mysteriously dissapeared ), and a super sweet soft blanket that is purple and matches our living room walls. You guys Rock. Thanks so much. That's the first game we opened and played. Michelle, Greg and their family bought us a movie, Horton Hears a Who, which we are watching right now. Thanks a ton and your gift is sitting here on my table but we can't get down from the mountain because of the snow. Our neighbors Rod and Kathleen brought us homemade fudge topping, 2 ornements, and hot chocolate. These guys are seriously the best. We are in the middle of the biggest snow storm in the History of Poky and they helped me shovel the walk and the drive. They've done this a couple times this winter already and a couple of times last year too. Love you guys! The Curzons brought over this yummy popcorn loaf that we are eating while watching Horton Hears a Who. Thanks guys and I need that recipe. We also got a family present that we all opened. We got a V-Motion with two controllers and the game Kung Foo Panda. It's such a cool toy. I don't have to worry about the kids playing video games because they have to get up and move around to play the games. It's great. The other part of our family gift is our new puppy, Piper. She is such a blessing and a sweet animal. She's only 9 weeks old and is a pound puppy. We adopted her a week ago today and she has been such a fun little animal to have. We aren't sure exactly what she is. They think that she is a schnauzer/lab cross but she is pretty small so I think she will take after the schnauzer. Yay! She loves to play in the snow. I thought it was going to be hard to potty train her because of it, but she loves to go outside and play in it. That doesn't mean she doesn't go potty outside. She does. She isn't going to be too difficult to teache her. The kids don't quite know what to think about her. She is just a puppy so she is really excitable and licks their faces. We will work on that. Ernie gave me some long wool socks because my feet are ALWAYS cold, a pair of flat brown fuzzy boots that I love and a book light and I gave Ernie a Engraveable Tie Tack, a man Bracelet, and a year pass to the shooting range. Anywho. Enjoy the pictures.
