Christmas in a flash

Found the Camera on Christmas eve- it was a miracle! Here is a review of our Christmas/New Years holiday. I have more photos to upload than I have time to upload then, but this will give you an idea.

Our Christmas this year was fabulous! The kids got to meet Santa this year. I swear he was the real one! Caroline's first Christmas for Santa to visit...

Tobin was overjoyed to finally meet the real Santa!

We made our yearly tradition of Christmas cookies. I didn't think we were going to have time this year- but being snowed in on Christmas Eve made it easier for us to do the things we love to do together like... make Christmas cookies, read books, watch Christmas movies, and just enjoy each other. Mostly, we got to focus on what Christmas really is all about- the birth of our Savior!

Tobin was shocked when he woke Christmas morning! He got a Kitchen(which he plays with all day long every day- I keep thinking he'll get tired of it), and the only thing he asked for - A Slinky Dog!

Caroline got spoiled by everyone this year. Being her first Christmas , it didn't take her long to figure out how to unwrap the presents. She loves tearing paper now! Here she is playing with one of her new toys in her dress that my Grammy made her!

We experienced a real live blizzard this year! When it hit town, we were at church. It normally takes us 15 minutes to get home from church in traffic. It actually took us over an hour to get home! It was unbelievable! A white Christmas we will never forget! We got a record breaking 14.1 inches! Tobin loved making snow angels and of course, throwing snow balls!

Christmas afternoon, we dug our car out of the snow...

... drove through the snowy hills...

... to go see our family!

We had a great Christmas this year! Aunt Serina made everyone these great hats!

Second cousins Kinsey and Caroline finally got to meet.

...And we said goodbye to my sweet Grandaddy, Herschel. He is now gardening with the Lord in heaven, but we will miss him so much!
Tuesday, My doctor said I was officially in Remission. I am now off all steroids- Praise the Lord! I give the Lord full credit for my healing. We are starting 2010 thanking God for our blessings. Hope your 2010 is blessed beyond measure!
