Mati Claire is 9 and getting into the pre-teen stage. She was a little hard to buy for this year, but was happy with books and movies. Mattox racked up on electronics and everything Minecraft!
Merritt got all the "big" gifts this year. She got TWO motorized vehicles that we think she can do for her size and weight. Small girl problems. When you are extremely small, not strong, or coordinated enough to do regular bikes and trikes... she has a hard time enjoying playing outdoors sometimes (especially when the older siblings are running circles around her). She gets frustrated and then chooses to come back in. Hopefully these new toys will let her have some fun too.
It was alot of fun to watch Mason open his gifts this year. This being his second Christmas, he quickly learned how to unwrap his presents! He REALLY liked his new PB chair (it is pretty soft and cuddly!). I have to say that I think his Christmas pajamas turned out pretty darn cute! oh.my. that little tooshie. and.his.curls. Lord help me. I can't say no to the curls!
|Never even had time to finish decorating the tree. No angel or star at the top. Matt never got the last of the decoration down out of the attic... we let Coco, our Elf, stay there for awhile.|
|I let the kids decorate however they wanted!!! its hard to "let it go".|
|But I can do some mean cupcakes. chocolate cupcakes with peppermint frosting. and swirled. yes, that made up for the cookies!|
|Mamaw playing with Mason|
