Christmas 2008

Can you believe another year has come and gone????

This year, Tyler and LeeAnn decided to exchange "home made" gifts. One day Tyler stopped by my desk at work and we were talking about what he was going to make for Leeann for Christmas, he wanted to make something that was over the top and not what she would expect or believe he could do. I jokingly said he could make her a skirt which he thought was a fabulous idea. The following Saturday he came over and after a trip to the store for fabric which by the way he picked out, he sat down and cut it out and sewed it together. I guess the sewing class in junior high actually paid off. It really looked good and I think Leeann was truly suprised he could do it.

Our Christmas tree. Christmas night after everyone left, we shut off all the lights and listened to Christmas music and gazed at the lights. it was so relaxing.

Iviemarie helping Gaelynn get the Christmas eve table ready for our annual dinner of clam chowder and corn chowder. yummmmm!!!!

Thayn and Alison invited us over to watch the kids open their presents and unfortuantley I forgot my camera because they got a Wii. The kids were beyond excited and it was funny because Kyle sat there hugging it with a permanent grin on his face. It was cute to see them so excited.
After breakfast with them, we braved the weather and went out to see what Kyndra, Garrett and Peyton got for Christmas.

Garrett was so excited he got a Thomas the Train track.

Peyton received this toy from Grandma and Grandpa.
Kyndra was very excited for the Tea set she received and has already been working on invites for her first tea party.
Later that evening, everyone came over for our annual Christmas party. The younger kids did a gift exchange and the adults did a $5.00 gift exchange. It was alot of fun expecially since my gift kept getting taken so I would have to pick another one.
