Christmas Day....

Looks like we've had a visitor!

We actually had to wake the kids up Christmas morning..... at about 6:00 am.

Duke actually got the dirt bike that he said Santa was bringing him!

Molly still isn't completely awake.... although she did notice that Santa did not bring her a Barbie doll like she asked. I think Santa thought the Barbie bike would be even better, but I'm not sure Molly felt the same.

We headed out for a little bit so that Duke could try out his dirt bike. He was really excited! The problem was.... he had never even riden his bike without training wheels so we weren't real sure what was going to happen.

Of course, Molly found the one little dog (Lilly) wondering around outside on Christmas morning. The child is obsessed with any type of animal.... it doesn't matter what it is.

The kids had a great Christmas and so did Chad and I. I had to get inside and start breakfast because everyone would be at my house around 8:00!

We started a tradition a couple of years ago for Christmas morning. Each Christmas morning everyone comes to our house to see what Duke and Molly got from Santa and Mother and I fix breakfast for everyone. We all really enjoy getting to be together one more time during the holiday's. Duke and Molly enjoy it as well because they get help with all of their toys and they get to play with their toys and there is always one or two of the men who are running through the house with them. I really enjoy Christmas morning at my house because I get to fix a meal for everyone after getting to eat at everyone else's house. This is a tradtion that we will continue. Chad and I have such a wonderful family between the two of us! We realize that we are very blessed to have so many people who love us and our children. Our family means the world to us.
