new years day
We spent New Years Day celebrating Christmas with my side of the family.
We went over in the morning for breakfast and got spoiled with so many presents.
My mom made the mistake of letting the boys open these FIRST. It was like a repeat of last year with the foam bats. Once the Nerf guns came out, all present opening stopped.
Certain people started running around the house and hiding. No one was safe.
Levi even tried to help out. He was crawling around collecting all the darts.
Owen was at a slight disadvantage with his torn ACL. Poor guy. There is no mercy in this family.
I had to sit by these two. Let's just say I was watching my back.
Finally Ellie stood up and tried to put a stop to the shooting. She said it was time to open more presents. We went back to present opening, but I am pretty sure the shooting never stopped...for the ENTIRE day.
We also celebrated my grandpa's birthday. Happy birthday grandpa!
We had to keep the boys happy with graham crackers. It works every time.
I don't know what is happening in this picture. It looks like Tripp is in trouble, but I don't think he was. He is looking so seriously at his dad in that goofy hat. Funny.
My sister got an old-school trapper keeper. Did you have one of these? I did in junior high. She was so excited. She is a major couponer and she is going to use it for coupons. So, if you see her in the store with that huge pink binder, don't bother her. She is serious about her coupons!
Levi got some great wooden blocks. So fun.
There were lots of cousin hugs throughout the day. Levi isn't so sure about them yet.
We tried so hard to get a cousin picture.
This is the best we could do.
And they were done.
What a wonderful Christmas we had. We are truly blessed. And what a gift to be able to celebrate with Levi this year. There were lots of memories made and now we are ready for a new year!
