Merry Christmas to all!

To all of our family and friends that keep up to date with our family through our blog, "We hope you had a fabulous Christmas!" Be sure to leave us comments so we know you visited!

On Christmas Eve, Tina's parents arrived along with her brother Mike who flew in from Aurora Hills California! We took this photo prior to the kids first Christmas tradition of opening one present from under the tree!
Our second Christmas Eve tradition is to go out and feed Santa's reindeer prior to going to bed. The kids have bags of reindeer food (oats and glitter). Santa's reindeer will be sure to find us because the glitter will shine under the moonlight and the reindeer love to eat the oats and can smell them from miles away!

Then it was off to the upstairs where all of the kids had their slumber party! Ryan, Tyler and Ryley pictured above!
Tori and Sarah!
Brandon all snug in his bed!
Our tree prior to Santa's arrival!

Santa filled all of our stockings!

Loaded presents under the tree and moved one of our couches!

It is a lot of work for Santa and his elves to deliver gifts to all 6 kids!

The kids awoke Christmas morning with smiles on their faces!

"Thank you Uncle Mike and Aunt Susan for the Mexican Train Game!" We are looking forward to playing it!

Santa brought Sarah the baby doll she asked him for!

"Thank you Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Jack for the wonderful train set!" That was a fabulous surprise and we can't wait to set it all up!!!!

Around 9am it started snowing on Christmas morning. It was a magical Christmas snow! The Oregonian (Portland newspaper) stated that statistically there is a less than 1% chance of getting snow in the area on Christmas! We loved to see the huge white flakes coming down that morning! Sarah was the first to run out to play!
