Christmas was lots of fun for us this year. I had to work until 2 on Christmas Eve, but then I met the girls at my parents' and we had homemade pizza for dinner. Then some family came over and we did some singing and made (and ate) homemade doughnuts. They are, of course, amazing!!

This year, instead of getting pajamas on Christmas Eve, the girls got robes, which they love
Which they love, obviously! In fact, Lylli would now like to be Obewan-ka-lylli for Halloween! Silly kid!
Seryn and Layla loved the sing-a-long. Lylli was off crocheting somewhere. I taught her to crochet that night. She loves it.
Santa even stopped by our house this year. Lucky us!
And it should be known that Santa and I coordinated gifts this year. So mine was the first to be opened so that Santa's would make sense. For Christmas this year, I bought all four of us plane tickets to Seattle Washington. My brother, Dean, lives out there as well as my boyfriend, Brian. The girls were VERY excited to learn they would be seeing everyone AND flying on an airplane!
Here is Seryn putting togethe her Kinex with Grandpa. (Brian got all the girls Kinex, which they love.)

Layla got some beautiful earrings. I think they're too big, but she loves them! Of course!

And this is the ferris wheel Lylli made with her Kinex.

Of course, I can't begin to name all the wonderful gifts we received this year. Harry Potter wands, a mini food processor, suitcase, jewelry. Well, you saw the pile of gifts. I could go on for a while. But what's most important is that we had a nice time. I made dinner and my parents joined us. It was laid back and really nice.

Santa's Lap!

We weren't excited to see Santa at all! Can't you tell?

Bed Spread

This is my new bedspread Lenay got for a me a couple months back and it just came in. I LOVE it!! And I painted my room gray and white to match and will be putting some teal accents in my room too.  It's so much fun to decorate! I wish I had more money to do it!
