Christmas 2011

This year's Christmas was by far our favorite yet! We started out on a quick trip down to Dallas to have Christmas with Grant's parents. 
Here is Eli opening his big present, a Cars Geo Tracks.

And Callie ripping into her new baby stroller that she was convinced she could fit into.

We came home from Dallas and spent Christmas Eve and morning just the 4 of us at our house. It was such a sweet time being together!

Pretty good pic for not having an extra person to take it!

Me and my girl!

Could she be any cuter when she's excited? We let them open a present after dinner.

Both presents were actually for Eli but we knew Callie wouldn't care. She got to open one of them and that was enough for her I think.

Eli got some army men and some lego star wars pajama pants.

Callie insisted on putting the pants around her neck and kept them there the rest of the night.

After presents it was bed time for Callie and then the 3 of us watched the Nativity Story with the fire going.  I LOVE that movie! And we decorated some treats for Jesus' birthday party the next morning.

All the wake-up moments were captured on video but it was so fun! We woke the kids up with red and green balloons because every birthday party needs balloons!

Here is Eli enjoying a birthday brownie treat.

Happy girl

Blowing out the candles on Jesus' birthday cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

One of my favorite moments is captured in this pic. One of the main things Eli wanted for Christmas was some glow-in-the-dark planets and stars for his room.  When he opened them up he said, "YES! This is what I was hoping for!" They only cost $3. Sometimes its the little things that bring the most joy.

Callie got some play food for the play kitchen.  Our sweet girl got a nasty rash all over her face and body as a reaction to a vaccine that lasted a while. 

One of my favorite gifts! Being 36 weeks pregnant made bending over really difficult.

After almost 3 years in OK I figured it was time to own some OU apparrel so Grant hooked me up with a hat.

Callie's big gift was this ball pit that she and Eli both loved.

After we finished opening presents we packed up and headed to Missouri to have some time with the cousins and my parents. More presents and more fun!
