who spoiled them rotten. Remember how I'm too cheap to buy my girls American Girl Dolls? Uncle John and his fiancee got Alex Kit.
Audrey received an Itty Bitty Baby. She also got a couple of other babies. She is quite the harried mommy these days.
It's a little confusing 'round here because the babies' names are Sally, Alex, and Audrey.
The boys also received gifts from their lists.
We enjoyed a lovely Christmas Eve service at our new church. Afterwards, I made the kids pose for pictures. "Your cooperation will be your Christmas present to me," I explained. Two of the children were more giving than the other two.
We did, however, manage to get two half-family pictures. And since two halves make a whole, we can actually say we took a family Christmas picture this year. Sorry...no cards. We aren't THAT together!
I've already described the utter Christmas anticipation in this household Christmas morning. It doesn't need to be said that they all enjoyed tearing into their gifts. And they were especially cute doing so in their brand new robes.
We had Christmas at our house with both sets of grandparents. We were also reunited with one of Mark's sisters and her husband who just returned from Africa as well as their grown children, two of whom brought spouses as well. It was a fun house full!
