My Grandpa Turned 90!!!

We had my Grandpa's 90th birthday party yesterday. His actual birthday was Friday. Can you believe he is 90?
Happy Birthday Nono.. we LOVE you!!

Christmas Day.. THANKS SANTA!

Hailee with her new cell phone... from Santa.

Hayden with his new Ping golf clubs.. from Santa.

Were going to Disneyland.. THANKS MOM and DAD!!

Boy.. we have SO much to be thankful for!! The kids had an amazing Christmas as well as we did. But the kids are so much more fun to photograph Christmas morning than we are.. hee hee! Santa was SO good to all of us. Elle got a Step 2 playhouse from him... with it's own mailbox and doorbell. She was ringing that doorbell all morning! Hayden got the new golf clubs he has been wanting to help him in those golf tournaments.. hee hee! And Hailee.. she got that stinkin glyde cell phone with the qwerty keyboard that she wanted. Hailee realized it paid off to sit on Santas lap this year though she fought me about "sitting on some strangers lap".. hee hee! Then the kids did a scavenger hunt to find the gift from Mark and I. After running around the house finding clues.. they found Mickey and Minnie.. then realized We're going to Disneyland. We leave Saturday, January 3rd and come home Wednesday the 7th. We are ALL looking so forward to it! We need the time to go and play and ALL be kids again!
Christmas day was at my house with my family. We had 24 of us it was a full house! There was a bunch of family in town from Michigan because it was my Nono's 90th birthday Friday. It was a tad chaotic but always great to be with family on these special days.
THANK YOU everyone for all the wonderful and generous gifts. We hope you had a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas Eve at Grandma and Poppy Baker's house and did gift exchanges with Mark's side of the family that evening. We went to the childrens service at church and went back to their house for dinner and presents. The kids had a blast with their cousins...Shae and Carson. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful family! Thank you Grandma and Poppy!
