It's almost the New Year and I am just now getting on here to upload my Christmas pics. It's been a busy couple of weeks even though I have been on vacation part of both weeks. We have also been battling the stomach virus (I had it Christmas Day) and both of the kids had bronchitis. But we are all feeling much better, so that's good. Don't want to ring in the New Year with the sickies!
We started our Christmas celebrations on Christmas Eve with Bryan's mom and Dad, brother and sister and law, and my mom. She joined us this year for Christmas dinner and presents.

Then, the children woke up around 7:30 or 8:00 ready to see what Santa had brought them. Carley was already awake at 4:30 after she heard "Santa" eating the cookies and drinking the milk. She ran into the bed room hollering, "Momma, Momma, I hear Santa." I told her we couldn't go see til it got daylight. So, she went back to bed with no fuss! I had to sit at the top of the stairs to watch them open their gifts since I had been up sick most of the night! Bryan was a trooper and took care of all of the pics and opening of the gifts. He even cleaned up some afterwards!

Then the Saturday after Christmas, we celebrated with my family, my uncle Pete, and Savannah's boyfriend Michael.
Here's Michael, Colby, and Austin:

Here's me and Bryan:

And last but not least, Michael, Savannah, and Colby:

I will be back to upload some scrappy projects! I've been quiet productive this weekend. It really helped that I got to Guest Design at Scrapbookers Clubhouse
using the beautiful Crate Paper Prudance kit on pre-order now for January! I hope you all had a wonderful blessed Christmas and I wish you a happy, safe and prosperous New Year! See ya soon!

I have been trying for the past week to get our family pic made in front of the tree. Sadly, we haven't had a family pic made since Carley was 2 yrs. old, except for the occasional snap shot at birthday parties or the beach. It also doesn't help that Bryan loathes family pics. He hates having his picture made for any reason. It also didn't help that my good camera tore up on me a few weeks ago, so I had to pull out my old digital camera. Well anyway, we survived and here are our pics:

I have more to edit and upload so be on the look out for those!
