Almost Wordless Wednesday---Christmas Morning

Five days into the New Year and I'm only just now getting around to posting a few pictures from Christmas morning. Obviously putting an end to my procrastination didn't make it on this year's list of goals for 2011! Oh well, there's always next year, right?!

And without being too braggadocios, let me just sum up our family's Christmas with three simple words, we're immensely blessed!


Little Drummer Girl




For me?
We quickly discovered that GG loves opening gifts, but enjoys the tissue paper and wrapping just about as much as the present!





And, GG wasn't the only one making Santa's nice list!





Seeing Double---
I had Gillian Grace's silhouette made by a local artist and gave them to both Bret and my parents!


Sweet Bean's favorite gift--table and chairs from Gammie and Grandad




Happy Wednesday!

Look at her with those drums...too precious!! I am sure you will want to throw those out the window in a few days if she is anything like my boys with their drums..LOL! It is so funny, most kids do like the wrap and tissue as much or more than the present! And is that an IPad for Bret? And a computer for Dad?? Looks like you all did pretty well :)

Tissue paper does really have a fun crinkling sound when you wave it. She's so cute and she sure got nice gifts! Love Grandpa's expression when he's looking at her.
