Christmas Day


We had a nice Christmas. Holly got up at 5:00 a.m. and we let Brooke sleep as long as possible til Holly yanked her out of bed at 6:00. The girls had a ball and paper was flying everywhere. I hope everyone had a nice Christmas!

Here's the tree after Santa came. Being silly

All Bop wanted was her own radio with headphones....she was most excited that it was pink :)

All cleaned up and ready to go to Grandma & Grandpa's house

Brooke was very happy that Grandma made her a bathrobe. She wears it every night.

The weather here has been incredible...it's like spring time. We made good use of the beautiful day and rollerskated a lot. Mommy's sore.... :)

Yay! She got a strike!

Official visit with Santa

We went to Santa's little mall hut on Thursday night. We were glad that he didn't have a black eye this year like he did last year. The girls were very very excited. They both hopped right in his lap. Brooke told him she wants her own radio and Holly wants some new roller skates. Easy enough! :)

Waiting outside for our turn
Bop and Reid
Ho Ho Ho (Santa was kinda crabby this year - maybe we should have brought him some tequila)
Now would it kill you to grin a little bit Santa?

Brooke's Christmas show at school...

Brooke had two little Christmas shows at school (some kids come on different days - so they do everything twice). Santa showed up and brought them a present. She was so excited because her Grandma and Grandpa Maher came to watch. Her Grandma made her two Christmas dresses to wear...which she loved! Her and her class were so cute!

Jaguars vs. Packers

We met up with the Wisconsin Cheeseheads down at the Jags game last Sunday. The Jaguars actually pulled off a win!
