THEN...everyone opened their presents and played for a little while. Everyone got movies (How to Train Your Dragon, Toy Story 3, Secret Garden, Matilida, and of course Mickey Mouse Choo-Choo Express), the kids got wii games and a DS game, everyone got a camera, everyone got clothes and PJs, everyone got books! Anna and Mary got a doll, Noah and Anna got banks, Isaac got blocks, and a microphone. Anna, Mary, and Isaac got PILLOW PETS, while Noah got a couple of fleece blankets. Noah got a Nerf gun set, Star Wars Legos, Double Light Sabers, and we gave him my ipod touch. Anna got a cupcake maker which she just had to have - it was NASTY!!! So later I got her an Easy Bake Oven. She also got a hair brush microphone, and a keyboard - Jason is going to teach her how to play! Mary was excited about all her stuff too! She got a Minnie Bowtique playset (she is IN LOVE with Mickey & Minnie) and a GUITAR! She loves to play guitar! Isaac's didn't get as much as everyone else b/c I had ordered him a Radio Flyer Bumper Car that never came in...he will get it though! Thank goodness he never noticed...ha ha! But he had a great Christmas - I think I've listed everything he got! LOTS of CANDY too!!!
I was super excited about heading up to Huntsville b/c there was SNOW! At our house it was raining while we opened our presents and then as we were leaving it was snowing - but it was VERY wet and mixed with rain! We hit Cullman and it was SNOW and it was on the ground! We ALL were so excited that we were having a WHITE CHRISTMAS and enough snow to play in! It was absolutely beautiful at my Mamma's house!! My Uncle helped Anna make a snowman and by the time they were giving him personality the cousins got they finished him up and had a snowball fight! They would come in - warm up and got again! It was so much fun when everyone got there!
It was just perfect this year...we had snow, lots of food, a wonderful family to share it with, and new baby to love (baby Timothy - SOOO sweet - we had so much fun passing him around). Blessing abound!!
