MERRY CHRISTMAS... The girls were so excited Christmas Eve. We headed to the stores for some last minute shopping. Here are my "little elves" as we were ready to go.

Holly and JB were sick and unable to join us for dinner. Caiti came early to the delight of the girls.

Caiti and Stephen became engaged earlier this year. Stephen, his mother and nephew joined us for dinner.

The girls love being with Caiti.

We lit a fire in the backyard and the girls lit some sparklers.

We opened stockings

and put reindeer food on the front lawn so Santa could find our house.

The girls went to sleep and we watched "White Christmas".

Christmas morning

Every year Santa brings the girls a nutcracker to add to their collection.

Aunt Pam made a photo blanket for Mariah and Caeli.

This is Caeli's blanket with her dance pictures on it.

Mariah got a new bag.

We had a wonderful Christmas!
