Our Christmas ~ 2008
I haven't had a chance to share our family Christmas pictures yet. For the first time in 12 years, Phillip was able to take time off in December and it was wonderful. We went to a few parties, had family and friends over and had lots of time to relax.
New pajamas on Christmas Eve.
Most of the pictures involved silly faces.
Making reindeer food with oats and cookie sprinkles.
Uh-oh, don't tell Santa!
Christmas morning smiles.
Webkinz are popular at our house.
Later that afternoon, we had Christmas dinner with Phillip's family.
Now it's time to get back to our routine, schoolwork, violin lessons, Boy Scouts, etc. Thank you for taking a look and I hope you all have a great start to your week!
And now let us welcome in the New Year,
Full of things that have never been.

You have beautiful children, I love their pajamas. The pink one looks a lot like a pair I have myself =)
Sounds like you had the perfect Christmas
Kelli, I hadn't noticed how much your kiddos are growing up until I saw that picture of them in their Christmas jammys. Time sure is flying! I'm glad you were able to enjoy the Christmas season with your precious family. ;)
Love the pix Kelli..like you I am ready to get back to a routine. I think vacations are fun but routine is good for the soul. Happy New Year.
I'm so glad you had a wonderful Christmas...loved the pajamas.
Thanks for sharing your Christmas pictures! :-) I am so glad you had a nice holiday. Happy New Year to all of your family! :-)
Looks wonderful. Love all the pajamas and the puppy having a drink. :)
Happy New Year!
Great pictures. Your kids look adorable in their new jammies. And the picture of the puppy drinking Santa's milk is so funny.
Happy New Year!
Great family photos! Sounds like all had a wonderful holiday!
How fun! We love the new pajamas and Daisy drinking Santa's milk made us laugh.
I love the happy looks on your children's faces - very sweet.
Thanks for sharing your pictures. I love the dog helping himself to Santa's milk... very funny!
Love the pics esp the puppy laping milk, that was so cute!
Looks like a fun Christmas! My kids also lurrve Webkinz! It is very addicting!
The kids are growing up fast. It's amazing how much they have changed since I've been coming to your blog.
Happy New Year Kelli! I have missed stopping by here! I am going to get caught up now and look forward to coming back daily!!
Things have just been so busy!
Thank, Kelli! I have been waiting to see the pics of your Christmas. They were worth the wait. Your oldest daughter sure looks like you. Loved the picture of Benjamin being silly. He always looks so serious in your other photos you have posted. But the real winner in my eyes was Daisy drinking Santa's milk. :-)
Have a great week at your house. I am still putting decorations away. :-( Love, Debbi
What lovely photos (your tree looked stunning). Happy children too - loved the smart new "jammies".
Nancy and I have been trying to get into SD forum, but it won't load for some reason - is there a problem?
Happy New Year anyway.
Thanks for sharing pictures of your beautiful family enjoying Christmas.
Sending you my very best wishes for 2009.
A very happy New Year to you and your family, Kelli!
I enjoyed peeking in on your Christmas celebration, Kelli:) Love the new pajamas!
Everything looks lovely. So glad you had a nice time with family! Even Daisy enjoyed the snacks:)
Have a blessed new year.
Thanks for sharing your photos! Your kiddos are so cute! I see you have a little comedian on your hands too! I see your pretty smile in all their faces--sorry Phillip! I'm sure somebody looks like him!!!(smile)
I might have to borrow your Christmas Eve pjs idea. So cute!

Hi Kelli, those are fun pictures. I love your dog Daisy. (remember dogs can't eat chocolate):))) I hope she didn't eat the chocolate. Just concerned. I'm an animal lover as you know. Kelli thx for sharing, you always have good things and yes now it's back to normal. Take care.

Kelli, looks like you and your family had a wonderful, cozy Christmas. Ya gotta do Christmas eve (and Christmas day) in jammies! :)
Don't you just love the faces of the kids on Christmas morning?
Looks like you guys had a wonderful Christmas with food, family, and fun. Mimi
Love the dog in the milk glass, you could win a contest with that one...
Looks like fun was had by all at your house this Christmas...so sad to have to start to pack away our Christmas Treasures!
Happy New Year, Kelli!! It has been so fun to read your posts this past year. By-the-way, thanks for sharing with me the make of camera that you have.

Beautiful as always, Kelli. The children looks so sweet and happy, love it! Especially charming, was the pup getting some treats! hehe =)
Oh what lovely photo's. I loved the pj's. Brings back memories. I bought cowboy pj pants and slippers camo from Old Navy. I couldn't resist came in handy in the cold spell! Looks like you had a lovely feast. The table was so pretty. And, I loved Daisy's photo I'll have to steal it! We didn't leave out milk and cookies. Daisy would have liked that!
Have a great week and enjoy all your daily activies in the sunshine today! Yea.

How cute are your children? Your son looks so much like you (well they all do). I remember the PJs with the feet in them.
Glad you had a great Christmas.
Don't feel bad - I haven't taken down any decorations yet! At the rate I'm going, it might be February! Love the dog drinking Ho Ho's milk!
Sweet Christmas pictures! The children look so precious and Daisy has the right idea about snacking for Santa!
