Christmas Day

Christmas Continued.....

The kids woke us up around 7:45 and weren't real happy with us that we needed to feed babies first (and make a cup of coffee). That actually went pretty fast and we are able to dive in! I didn't get as many pictures as I had hoped because the boys were jumping beans and just all over the place excited about their new toys. We tried to keep things a little smaller this year for them to open because of their big gift. The older boys each got a large Lego set, Lego Batman Wii, real walkie talkies, scooters, some art supplies they wanted, some Magic Tree house books and Lego books. Britney got Lego Friends, Bath & Body Works, a dress to wear to a wedding, her first heels (she wanted these so badly), some Dolphin books (she is really into Dolphins and Mermaids), and some riding boots. Then all three of them each got a Kindle Fire 8.9 with cases and protective screens!! The baby B's got stacking rings, teething toys, baby silverware and some mesh feeders.

Riley and I had a good Christmas too!!! He surprised me with a beautiful ring with the boys birthstone, at home "laser" hair remover (me power - more on that in another post to come), Vera Bradley purse and matching wallet I had my eyes on, some crafting tools I wanted, some Benefit eyeshadow, and a Skagen ceramic watch!

For Christmas dinner we fixed Prime Rib, homemade mac & cheese, bacon peas, homemade rolls, cranberry orange relish, and a beautiful salad with homemade ranch dressing. For dessert Riley's mom made three different kinds of pies. Although Riley and I had something come up and we didn't get to enjoy pie with our kids which was very upsetting but we made up for it the next day.
