Christmas 2010 (Part One)

We celebrated Christmas at our house yesterday. It was a good time but we missed Logan and Jenn. Logan is sick with a high fever and is in fact, very close to having meningitis. Pray for him. He doesn't have insurance, is in the Police Academy and working. He's feeling the pinch to need to work to pay bills but is way too sick to go in. We'll celebrate Christmas with them on Christmas Day.
At the risk of having waaayyy too many baby pictures ... here is our first Christmas with the twins.


Owen opening his gift




Eli opening his gift










First visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus
(thanks Toby & Maxine)






Owen thinks this guy is a little strange



Mrs. Claus is cool though



Eli is checking him out
.... thinking about it ...
and decided that he's one of the good guys


Eli also likes cold, hard, cash


Cody made me a stable for Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus





and Brian gave me a cycling helmet to keep my head from being splattered.
It has tattoo designs on it and the wording ... well ... seemed appropriate.



Merry Christmas!!
