It has literally taken me all day to get these pictures loaded to blogger. I don't know if it is blogger or our Internet, but it has taken forever!
We tried to get a picture of the 3 kids on Christmas morning - I have to remind myself constantly that it will probably be a long time before we get a picture of all 3 kids looking and smiling!
My parents have a dancing Santa that Jayla LOVES. She carried that thing everywhere!
She even told us she was going to go "night-night" with it ...
Pretending to take a nap ...
They also have the YMCA dancing Elmo that Jayla loves!
Jordyn's favorite thing is this piano!
As I mentioned in the previous post, I didn't do a very good job of getting pictures this Christmas. Poor Jaxon was in like 2 pictures!
The girls were great helpers with passing out presents!
Jordyn has been begging Santa for a "big big Barbie car that I can drive." She saw some neighbor kids with one this past summer, and for the last 6 months, she has told us that Santa would bring her one! With a little help from G & G VB, Santa made a special delivery to Grandpa's shop!
A new Barbie Ford Mustang! (we need to put on the decals yet)
The girls were so excited ...
And then ... this happened ...
... even though Jordyn wanted to "drive" the car ... she was scared to death. We kind of had a feeling that this would happen. So for now, Jordyn will sit in it, pretend to drive, and play with the radio in it. :)
This little one though is fearless!
We showed her the gas pedal and let her go!
And when she couldn't go forward any farther, we would put it in reverse, let her hit the gas, and she would back it all the way up. It was hilarious!
This thing can 5 mph, but we have it locked at 2.5.
Before leaving my parent's house that afternoon, we tried to get a picture of Kiki and Josh with the kids. Ha ... Jayla was in total meltdown mode ... disaster! :) Jayla loves Josh though, so he was the lucky one to get the screaming child on his lap! (She really does love him - she always run straight to him to hug him.)
The next stop that evening was Justin's grandparent's house. We played some "minute to win it games" ... Meggan and I lost - and were shocked by how much kleenex we wasted to play the game. :)
Justin and Brody also lost their game ...
Cheap toilet paper = difficult game. :)
Jordyn and Meggan (Jordyn calls her "my Meggan")
Jayla and a new toy ...
Meggan met Jaxon for the first time. :)
Christmas sure flew by! We have one more to celebrate tomorrow with my dad's sister and her family.
We took our tree down this week, and the girls were just devastated. They were also so sad that Elfie went back to the North Pole. We told them that Elfie might just come stop by again at different times throughout the year. Jayla still shouts his name every morning and everyday when we get home from school. They sure loved Christmastime!
