My New Year resolution was going to be to take a picture of the girls everyday this year. My thoughtful husband thought we should take a family picture everyday instead. We will see how long that lasts! Here is our first picture....

After church we headed over the Nana and Papa's for Christmas. Papa had to work Christmas day so we waited for him to get off work before opening presents. The girls asked for Papa to come home for a solid 2 1/2 hours. I have never seen 3 little girls more excited to see their Papa when he finally arrived! The Belle was thrilled to get a scooter and a pottery maker. The May loved her Easy Bake Oven. The Lynn loved all of her gifts but was really sad when there wasn't anymore to open (that was her favorite part of Christmas). After Nana and Papa's the girls had a sleep over at Margo and Jude's. The girls were excited to see all of their new toys. My favorite toy that Margo and Jude got was Just Dance 3 for the wii!
There were LOTS of squeals at our house this morning. The Belle was so dramatic when she opened each gift. It was as if she won a million dollars with each gift she opened. The May kept saying "I can't believe it". The Lynn was a little overwhelmed with her sisters excitement but she quickly got into the routine of tearing into her gifts. After they opened their gifts and ate our weekly Sunday morning cinnamon rolls for breakfast we went to church.

We spent the day celebrating Christmas with husband's side of the family. We always have a blast together. All the grandkids got new bikes/scooter for Christmas. My girls were completely shocked! I can't believe I didn't get a picture of Margo with her new scooter. It was so sweet to see baby Marshall on his first Christmas!
We were cleaning out drawers and closet's recently and the girls came across old Christmas pictures. Before there were any children in my husbands family we had a tradition of making gingerbread houses. When the girls found out about this they were devastated that they had never made a gingerbread house. They have now declared that the gingerbread house tradition is back! The May really enjoyed the final product.

My sweet husband teaches some pretty cool students (who also read my blog). One of the girls favorite is "Mr." Jarred. We have a tendency to run into him at the beach quite often. He also works at Pizza Hut. He was sweet enough to let us know that Santa was making a visit to Pizza Hut and that kids eat free!! It just so happened that it was also The Lynn's birthday. We didn't tell the girls that Santa would make an appearance but they did know Jarred would be working (I think they were more excited to see him than Santa). The girls were very surprised to see Santa. The Lynn was a tad bit scared of him. Their main concern was "where he parked his sleigh".
