The last post of 2011

I worked today until 5.  After work, I met the girls, Granny, Aunt Stacy and Cheyenne for dinner.  Uncle Gordon went to the desert with his friends.  Daddy went to Glamis with Uncle Randy, Jason and Courtney.  It was just the girls for dinner.  Once the girls and I got home, it was pretty low key. 2011 was a great year for our family.  With all of the changes, we expect 2012 to bring even better things.  After a low key night, bed time is coming earlier than midnight and that's ok.  Tomorrow will start a new year and a new blog year!

Christmas Dinner in Pasadena

 After the events at our house in the early part of the day, we went over to Kevin's Aunt Lorie's for Christmas dinner with his side of the family.  Cheyenne loved the sit and spin.

 She really loved to stand on it more though......

 Cailey, Reece, Delilah and Cheyenne had a blast playing together in the playhouse out in the back yard.

It was a great end to a wonderfully peaceful Christmas day.

Late Christmas morning/early afternoon with Granny, Aunt Stacy, Uncle Gordon and Cheyenne

A little bit later on Christmas day, Granny, Aunt Stacy, Uncle Gordon and Cheyenne came over to exchange gifts and spend some time with us.  It was a nice morning, hanging out in our pj's.  Granny got here first and gave the girls cards to open.

 Taking some cute pictures by the Christmas tree.

 Opening and playing with presents!

Cheyenne's bow mohawk

 Reece loved this dog.  It barked Christmas songs and jumped around while it did it.  So cute.

Christmas Morning with Grandma and Papa

Christmas Morning at our house didn't start as early as we thought it was going to this year.  Because we were out late the night before, we were up before the girls.  When they got up it was so neat to see how excited they were that Santa came.  They told Daddy he was bad because he only had one thing in his stocking.
 Sitting by the Christmas tree with all of their loot!

 Opening their stocking stuff.

 Grandma and Papa got here and the real opening could begin!  Look at those piles of presents.  Spoiled girls!

 Pillow pets from Grandma, Papa, Uncle Greg and Aunt Amanda in Texas.

 Sitting in Cailey's new chair!  Reece got one when she turned one because Cailey had a rocking chair.  Cailey had now outgrown the rocker and kept saying she needed a big chair like Reece.

After presents, we had breakfast and then played with Grandma and Papa for a little bit. A nice Christmas morning.
