Christmas 2010

(Hot Wheels stunt track of some kind with robots, and Playmobile pirate set)
We had a pretty low key Christmas since we got back from our trip on the 23rd. It was quite enjoyable. These photos of the kids are from their Christmas Eve Secret Sibling gift exchange. Bella got Julianne, Julianne got Leia, Leia got Xander, and Xander got Bella this year. They draw names for this annually. We did our traditional scripture reading, etc on Christmas Eve and had personal pizzas and Reindeer punch. I somehow have no photographic evidence of this though.
2 different Etch a Sketches (regular and glowing). Our crispy dry tree!

B- 2 new novels that Daniel helped Xander choose
J- Paperoni, silly bandz, a purple Barbie

I don't have any Christmas morning photos because we always set up the video camera on a tripod and let it run on Christmas morning...so I'm not good about snapping photos during the craziness. The rest of these photos are from Christmas Day at Grammy and Grampy's house. The kids are getting a swing set for the backyard from them, but of course they each still had one personal gift to open from them this year. We really kept the influx of junk to a minimum this year with the Disney trip and the swing set being the large gifts of the year.

Grammy made a fancy beef tenderloin of some sort again this year. It was SO GOOD. It seems to be fast becoming a Christmas tradition for us. Xander loved his new garbage truck...but he unexpectedly threw up right before this, so he is not in the best mood. He is also wearing his Uncle's shirt while his was getting washed.

Percy opening his presents and wearing a wrapping paper dress fashioned by Leia.

A blur of fur. Grammy and her baby...and her feisty Grand-dog.
