Merry Christmas from our Home to Yours

We made it home from Aunt Pat's last night.  Dallas and Reba each wrote a note for Santa, placed some cookies and carrots on a plate, and filled a mug with milk and a cup with water (for the reindeer).

This is what greeted the kiddos this morning when they woke - an empty plate and cups and a letter from the Jolly Guy.
Dallas' note to Santa
For Santa, the milk and the cookies (are for you).  The carrots and the water is for your reindeer. Have a happy new year. Love, Dallas
Santa responded: Merry Christmas! Chip (the Elf that was in Dallas' classroom) says "Hi!" -Mr. C.
 Reba's note to Santa
Santa, Merry Christmas.  We have (cookies) for you. -Reba
Santa responded: Thank you! - Mr. C.
 The stockings were stuffed by the TV with care...
We let the kiddos look through their stockings before we headed to Mass.  The church always looks so lovely decorated for Christmas.
A parishioner was kind enough to offer to take a family picture for us.

When we got home, everyone changed into comfortable clothes, and Dallas and Reba agreed we could open gifts.

Santa brought new batteries for the Gators!

Daddy got the girls matching pink tractors
Another item Reba mentioned more than once that she would like was a combine, I had to twist Daddy's arm to convince him to get her one...

Dallas loved watching Doug and I open presents. I do believe he is learning to love to give.

Santa also brought Dallas and Reba wooden baseball gloves that have Cincinnati Reds on them. The gloves can hold their bat, glove and ball.
Julianne was happy carrying around her new outfit
Daddy also painted a semi truck for Reba
Dallas loves his new lowboy trailer

Until next time...

Christmas with Rosenfelds

We were able to spend Christmas Eve with Gram's side of the family.  Gram found my camera in the diaper bag; therefore, I have pictures to share with you all!

Dallas and Reba always love playing with this toy (I think it's Little People, but I'm not sure) when we are at Aunt Pat's house.
Doug and I joined Christy, Aunt Peggy and Kathryn in a game of Tripoley

The kiddos were able to decorate gingerbread men (thanks to Jeff for bringing the supplies)

(Great) Uncle Junior has a special spot in his heart for Reba - they share a birthday and are both left handers ;)  Reba was happy to climb up in Uncle Junior's lap and share her game today.
Gram helped Julianne open her goody bag
Aunt Peggy had ordered from my Jamberry party in the fall, but was waiting for me to show her how to apply them.  So we had a pedicure session!
Aunt Josie getting some snuggle time with Sugar
A new family photo!
Until next time...

Christmas with the Bergmans

This morning we all loaded up and head north to Pa and Gram's house.  Everyone was a little bit excited to open gifts...
Enjoy the memories that were captured on film...

Love Dallas' face...he didn't even know what it was!
They were excited for Pa to open his gift

I'm not sure if she didn't want her picture taken, or if she didn't need help unwrapping the gift...

One of the few things Reba did have on her list was a dish drain/tray for her play kitchen, so she was pretty excited when she unwrapped this
Until next time...
