Christmas Day!

The kids were pretty excited to see that Santa came during the night!

I was pretty excited to snuggle with this sweet girl. :)

Somehow I didn't get a single picture of the kids opening their gifts from Santa! Jordyn got a jeep for her AG dolls, Jayla got a horse for her AG doll, and Jax got the Batman robot that he had been begging for since August!

Jusitn bought a new game a couple of weeks ago, and he decided our family needed a tournament! My brother even made a trophy for the Klask tournament!

The championship between Justin and Eric ...

I guess this will be displayed at our house until the next family tournament!

The kids spent the rest of the night playing ... the guys all went to the Star Wars movie, and we spent an extra night at my parent's house!

I just love this - Jax was helping Tessa with the piano. :)

We had a great Christmas!

Christmas Eve Night

After church we headed to BJ and Devin's house for the rest of the evening.

Talk about energy ... these 7 had it! 

 They had one gift from Grandpa and Grandma that they had to open that night ...

 New PJ's!

Getting a picture was nothing short of a challenge! :)

It's crazy to think how close they are in age ... 
Jordyn - 8, Jayla - 6, Jaxon - 5, Logan - 4, Ryleigh - 4, Calvin - 4, Tessa - 9 months

Tessa was on the move!

 We all had Santa hats/head bands, so we decided to throw those on the kids too. :)

 They love their Auntie Kiki and Uncle Josh! 
(AND!! I can FINALLY share ... they're having a baby!!!)
Oofta ... it was a busy day, and I was pretty excited to head to bed ... but not until we tracked Santa in Iowa at about 11:45. :)

Christmas Eve Morning/Afternoon

 We went to Justin's parent's house on Christmas Eve morning and spent the day there! Of course the kids were excited to open gifts! 

Jax loves those $2 bills!!

Tights!! He was so excited to get sport tights!

Badminton for our new sport court!

Megan taught Jayla how to "play" with her olives so we sent her a picture. :)

This puppy has been a bit of stinker lately ... but he sure is super cute!

We taught the girls how to play Fill or Bust!

Jayla taught Grandma Helen how to play Pie Face Show Down! :) 
(They just used the wet sponge.)

We all played some basketball ...

Then it was off to the candlelight service at church!

 Whew! It was a busy day ... and I was the only who took a nap!! I very rarely take naps, but Jax and I had been up half the night with growing pains (UGH!!!) and I felt like a zombie! Somehow he managed to be a ball of energy all day though! :)

We enjoyed spending our day with Justin's parents and Grandma Helen!
