It was a "Merry" Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas. We are thankful for friends, family, faith, and all of the things in life that we get to enjoy. We are very blessed.

An early Christmas present

A couple weeks ago I gave the kids an early Christmas present. A kitten! Her name is Sophie. Samantha tortured her for the first day and I thought I would have to give her away- Samantha, not the cat. :) But she has calmed down a little bit and believe it or not, the cat loves her. Ashley and Taylor were SO excited to get a cat and have been great with her.

Christmas Festivities

Every year we decorate Gingerbread Houses. This year I bought a kit and the house was already assembled-so GREAT!!! 

Ashley and Taylor were very intent on making their pattern for the roof
Not sure what was going on here!

As usual, there was lots of candy sneaking going on

Samantha decorated her own gingerbread snowman. She made sure to lick, or take a bite out of every piece of candy as she put it on. I think she was pretty proud of it.
