Merry Christmas

Leah and her magnetic dress up dolls. We've had some of these things before, but she must be at the right age for them. She loves them so much and comes up with all sorts of outfits. She loves to display and explain each outfit just to make sure we know what it is.

Shaunie got a paintable piggy bank. Surprisingly, this is not what the pig turned out looking like. It was much more colorful.

This toy became a favorite of the little boys. They all played it and loved making the doors pop open. It is the simplest toy, but provides a lot of fun for little boys who like to see things pop up and surprise them.

Here is Sam displaying his Leapster. At this point, I don't think he actually knew what it was, but he soon learned all the cool things it could do.

I know, I am finally getting to this. Here are some Christmas morning pictures. The tree was beautiful and we had Emily and Ben along with Kelli and my parents to share Christmas morning with. The kids loved their presents and we are very grateful for all of our blessings at this time of year. Shaunie loved her MP3 player, Sam couldn't put his Leapster down, Leah thought the magnetic dress up dolls were the coolest, and Troy loved his balls and random toys. It was all so much fun and, like always, the best part was seeing the faces of the kids as they opened their presents.

And your comment about Shaunie's "colorful" piggy bank cracked me up. I can only imagine what it ended up looking like. haha.
