Christmas 2012

I decided if I was going to get a blog up about our Christmas, I had better get it done seeing as it has almost been two weeks since Christmas! And, again I am having trouble with getting pictures to come up in the order I want them to in have decided to work with it instead of fighting it.....

One of the few pictures that we got of all of us together on Christmas.

On Christmas Eve we traveled the 5 minutes it took to get to the "Grandkids" house! It was a nice relaxed evening and Emily fixed us her yummy green chili for supper! Grandma knows that the kids don't need any more stuffed animals, but she couldn't resist these cute little 2012 Christmas horses that I found at Kohl's at a super low price. That always justifies it, right?

It was fun just visiting and watching Tressie open up a few of her presents and then helping her little brother with his. Gunner looked so cute in his little red outfit!

Before we came home, they opened their packages with their new pajamas in them and got ready for bed so that Santa could come!

I will make this long story short by saying that we had a great Christmas Day! We woke up to about 4 inches of snow that morning which was beautiful, but on the ranch, the cows need to eat before it's Christmas! So, Tony and Justin bundled up and fed the cows some hay and cleared the tanks of ice so that they could get a nice cold drink!

When they got in we had Christmas here at our house. I think Tressie's favorite present from Papa and Gaga was her Rapunzel doll. She also got a Rapunzel dress and crown and wig to dress up with.

It was a very busy day with stops at Tony's Mom and Dad's for lunch and then 100 miles in to my Mom and Dad's house! Happy that we get to spend time with all of the family, but it sure makes for a marathon day! We were again blessed with a great day celebrating our Saviour's birth!
