Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve and Angela can NOT contain herself.  she switched presents about 10 times while the movie was playing (Scrooge with Jim Cary in the background!)
 She finally settled on a BIGGIE!!  Liz's reaction says it all...
"When I was her age..."
Can you hear it now??  ha!
 OH, SNAP!
 Appropriate for her!!


Now I know my kids are older when *I* have to wake them up and get them moving on Christmas morning :o)  What a pleasant change to sleep to about 8am!

Lizzie started into her stocking and kept pulling out 1's... more and more and more came out... until Grandma was shaking HER stocking to see if any had made it into her stocking too :)
 Pile of 1's for her trip money next summer!
 WOW - big stack!!  (looks more impressive than it was!!)
 Angela got a new camera and let me tell you - she is USING that thing!!!
 Grandma has a new monogram for her car (installed and everything!)
 Ah... she's not grown up yet... she's loving the new Chloe :)
 Grandma is right - this shirt is sooo her...
it says:
I have been very good
for the last week or so
let's just focus on that
 Beautiful Christmas ornament for Sally's tree from Robin and Donald
(sure missed having them there this year!!!)
 checking out the new bobby pin holder
 Liz got her all time wish and got her Scoodie!

I think she likes it!

And a Sonic Screwdriver from the "correct" Dr - David Tennant.  ha!
A new mouse pad for Sally with the girls all over it!

SHARK!!

Her Sweet 16 book wasn't as big of a hit for her as it was for Grandma! 
I'm sure she'll appreciate it later in life...maybe

Butch was shocked to find I snuck in a cribbage board from Alaska for him while we were there this summer.. there have to be some surprises in life!!

One HAPPY girl!!

This is the "Oh no, you didn't" look....

When will he learn, I really DO listen.... he got his much awaited IPad 2

She REALLY loves that Scoodie!
We had a shortened holiday season this year.. Butch is busy with work, which I guess is a good thing, because it means in this time of uncertainty that he still HAS a job to go to... so we didn't complain too much when we had to head home early. 
We did get to cram a number of Push the Dummy game, a shopping trip for a little after Christmas shopping and a movie (We Bought a Zoo - LOVED it!) and had a GREAT time just sitting, visiting and being bums!
I, however, will be doing partial days this week in an effort to get a few things done :)
