The kids enjoyed the main gift we gave them so much that it was difficult to get them to open the rest of the gifts under the tree. KayDee was thrilled with her pink legos, Derrick loved the legos he got and Samantha adored her Madam Alexander doll. I love that they love their gifts!
We drove up to Kevin's parents and went to church with them and spent the day. The kids love the time they get to spend with grandma and grandpa.
This year the Town Christmas program was a play. It was “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” and the kids put in a lot of hours to make it as good as it was Christmas Eve.
Samantha had two lines as one of the extra girls and Derrick was a wise man. KayDee was an angel. They all sang the songs. It was fun and definitely a bit of a change.
Santa Claus came later and we were quite worried about how long it would take him to call the kids names. There were a lot of visitors this year and Santa attends to them too.
We were happy to have him call their names about half way through and the kids were delighted with a scrap booking kit,
a Captain America shield
and paints and poster paper.

Me: "Yep, 6 days"
KayDee: "WOW!" Eyes sparkling, cheesey grin, super pleased squeal, happy dance etc...
I wish I was this pleased about my birthday being close to Christmas. That made my day.

|Man O War Ship. Derrick was happy to help buy this ship. It was a little out of our price range. We were lucky and found it on ksl classifieds for a lot less.|
Our little boy is growing up and doing so wonderful. We are so happy he is part of our family. He is so much fun and loves to be a part of what we do. He is thoughtful and sensitive to others. He loves camping and riding bikes. He is very coordinated and has a great inventive mind. He plays the piano and is now getting into sports. He is very excited to play baseball this spring.
