Merry Christmas 2011

Christmas Eve.
We finally arrive and it's late.
We changed the kiddos into their pjs before we left Carthage so that we could just plop them into bed when we got home. Good thing we did. Santa's helpers had a lot of work to to get ready for the morning.
I think we finally got to bed around 2:30 or so and were out as soon as our heads hit the pillows.
Luckily, Layla decided to sleep in a bit, which is a first, & didn't get up until 7:00am, which was GREAT!.

This is what the kiddos woke up to.

 Layla didn't really notice anything at first,
but the look on her face once she finally did was priceless.

Merry Christmas sweet babies!

After eating a bite and getting dressed, we headed to Darren's folks house to finish up Christmas with his side. We didn't get to visit long because they had to get on the road to Jill's folks house, but we enjoyed the time we did get to spend with them.

My sweet babies.
These are the sock monkey hats that Mommy and Daddy got them for Christmas.
Love these two!!
All in all, we had an amazingly wonderful Christmas and are blessed way beyond what we deserve.
I am so very thankful for all the blessings in my life.
I pray for many more happy and healthy holiday seasons to come.
