Christmas Day 2011

Finally I’m getting around to doing our Christmas post!!  I can hardly believe it has been a whole week since Christmas!!   

Our Christmas day was so wonderful.  We changed up Christmas day this year from the way we have been doing it the last 14 years and it worked out perfectly!!  We had all morning and afternoon at home to start our own family tradition.  We didn’t have to be at Chris’ Grandmothers until about 3.  I loved having all that time at home to be with our kids and not be rushed!658

Ryder got up first but he decided to wait until Maddox got up before he opened any gifts!

About 9 Maddox finally decided to get up!!  In the meantime…I mad a yummy breakfast casserole!!


He loved his new shoes!!



These were all the gifts from family and Santa!!


Santa brought them a Jumpy….as Maddox would call it!



After a fun morning at home…we were off to Grandma Nora’s!


Grandma Nora is 96!!


Maddox loves his Mawmaw Brenda!

We ate a bunch and then we were off to my Mom’s side extended family get together!


Kevin and my cousin Kyleigh


We had such a fun, blessed, full Christmas day but one of the most special parts of the day was hearing Maddox sing “Happy Birthday Jesus”!!  I’m so thankful for the real gift that we celebrate at Christmas…Our Savior!!!
