Our Christmas

Get ready for a long one! I can't have a Christmas with TWO kids and not have a ton of pictures. This has to be the best Christmas, ever! I loved getting to watch Rowynn open gifts and play with toys. It was a day full of relaxation, eating, gifts, playing, eating and relaxing. Perfection!

Our tree on Christmas morning. Look what all Santa brought the boys! (The table was a gift from Alaska grandma but we had to throw it in the mix)
 Stockings were brimming with goodies from Santa
Here is Rowynn coming in on Christmas morning:
Time to play!!

 More playing!!

Funny story about Rusty's gift. I went out one day to find him the perfect rocker/recliner. I made sure I didn't give away what stores I went to or what I was even looking for. I got home late that evening and had been unable to drop it off at a friend's house before heading home. We woke up that Sunday morning and Rusty said, "sorry we didn't make it to church this morning." I replied, "That's okay. I didn't think we would be going this morning anyway since the recliner is in the back of the van." He replied, "Oh, so that's what you got me?" At that point, I believe a look of shock and horror crossed my face as I threw my hands to my face and just started crying. I tried so hard to keep it a secret and then I just blurted it out.

No one said I was the brightest bulb in the box!

Here is Rusty's recliner. He did great and didn't open it until Christmas day. He tried to make me feel better by saying that he may have known what it was but he had no clue what color or fabric it was. Such a sweet husband.

 I'm not sure who likes it more, Rowynn or Rusty.

Our Christmas dinner was horseradish crusted prime rib, mashed potatoes, burgundy mushrooms, maple bacon brussel sprouts and buttery rosemary rolls.

Rowynn's face in the above picture cracks me up!

 Rowynn helped Brennyn play with his new toy
 Rowynn will most likely be a musician, he received drums and a keyboard this year and hasn't stopped playing since he got them.

All-in-all, it was an amazing day. We are so blessed. It was a wonderful day with our family as we celebrated our saviors birth. We will always instill the true meaning of Christmas to our children.
