She was able to go see Santa three times this year. First, in Richfield, two days after Thanksgiving. The second time was at Brett's family party, and the third time was at my family party. Dax actually did great in Richfield, but at both family parties he cried when he was put on santa's lap. I think a lot of it was to do with all the noise and all the people there. He is pretty shy. Rylee, of course, was a big girl everytime and got right up there and told him that she wanted a button-eyed teddy bear and a new bike.
It was so cute because everytime she opened a present she would say, "just what I always wanted!" or "I have always wanted one of these!"...and always a "thanks mom and dad." What a sweet little girl. Dax had took the nerd rope from Rylee's stocking and carried it around all morning, it was so cute.
The morning was great! Both kids loved their toys and gifts and were having so much fun with everything. And you could tell by the mess around the entire house.
Later that night Andrea, Kris, Dylan, Trinity & Teyara all came over and brought some games. The kids watched movies, played with toys, and played Jr. Yahtzee while us adults and Dylan played regular Yahtzee. It was a good time. What better way to spend Christmas than with family. It was great!
We look forward to another great year with Family and Friends.....
I truly feel blessed to have such a great family; a great husband, two beautiful and sweet kids that I love so very much! Without them in my lives it would not be the same. They mean the world to me and I am so happy that we are able to be toghether during such a memorable time of the year. I am so thankful that we are able to provide our kids with such a great Christmas....I am very blessed to have such great family and friends and I wouldn't have it any other way!
