A Very Late Christmas Post

Can you even call yourself a blogger if it takes you two weeks to publish a post about Christmas?
We had a wonderful Christmas!! On Christmas Eve we opened a present that Santa mailed to us. It was the Muppet Christmas Carol, so we watched that and ate goodies. Notice Talmage drooling over the goodies and Mercedes sleeping with my Dad.
These are the Christmas Eve slippers that we opened. I think that they were actually a huge hit with the kids, and I rarely take mine off.And here they are in action... Doesn't Mercedes look like she is getting entirely too big?
Santa brought the kids a fabulous little wagon. Each child gets a seatbelt and a drink holder, and if we ever decide that we are insane enough to have more kids we can even add more cars! They thought it was very cool to ride in. Now we just need warm weather!
Avri got an Alice dress complete with shoes and headband from Grandma and Grandpa.
And Talmage got some big boy undies that he didn't really know what to do with. It took him about a week to decide that they were okay to actually wear (on his bum, not his head).
Kendall and I decided that we got a house and a new baby and a new van for Christmas this year, but I guess we bent the rules a little because I got these curtains.
Other related things, the kids got to ride the train at the mall (compliments of Grandma).
All in all, we had a fantastic Christmas!! Kendall got a few days off for Christmas and a couple for New Year's and we just had a great time giving gifts and spending time together. The kids are almost back to normal after all the spoiling. New Year's Eve was my Dad's birthday so they came over for dinner and carrot cake and a few games. We didn't have any mishaps and we feel very fortunate this year to have such a wonderful family and great friends. We feel blessed to have the gospel in our lives and to have a knowledge and testimony that God lives and that Christ was born, and died, to save us all. We hope you had a great holiday season as well. We love you all!

I LOVE the wagon train thing... You must share where it was bought. Your curtains are beautiful - that is on my "things-to-buy-when-we-have-mony" list.

Oops, I spelled "money" wrong. My bad.

The wagon train was WAY difficult for Santa to find. But if you google "Choo choo wagon" you can find them.
