When we went to the Everett mall we got santa pictures and then the kids had fun walking the mall and playing in the play area. It was a great day with just us hanging out and not having to rush around in the shops for gifts. I felt bad for all those shoppers. I wondered how many really thought about the reason for the holiday...

Kaylin got a chair that she had been wanting for her room from Santa and a very nice pair of diamond earrings from Kenzie too. She also has an idea of things she can get with her gift card. I think she enjoyed her christmas. She got to talk to her mom last night and this morning and her aunts and Unk.

Well, I realized that the last Santa picture I had was Kenzie with Santa. We had one when Mike was 2 weeks old but Darrel dressed up so we didn't have to take Mike out (he was so little). Well, I decided since we had all the kids this year I was going to get a Santa picture. We drove to the mall in Everett (20 min drive) and spent the day with the kids walking the mall and playing. Everyone had a great time and Darrel got to sleep in a quiet house!

Well, the big boys have gone on a cub scout overnight camp. We have big plans without them. We are making truffles today and going to try and paint some ornaments if we can get Jake down for name. Then we are going to see about going to a movie. Amanda would love for the girls to take her to Princess and the Frog. Kenzie and I last night did some christmas wrapping and I still have more to do. I am almost done with my shopping. I think I have about 6 more gifts left and then I am done.
Well, Mike made a new friend. His name is Harley. He went with us to the school gingerbread night. Everyone had fun. The kids all got to make their own gingerbread houses. Harley and Mike worked on one together. Even Amanda was old enought to make her own.The big chocolate on top of hers is Santa going down the chimney. Her idea.
Well, Mike got to pick today his meal and he chose to go to McDonalds for lunch and everyone play in the play area so that worked out nice. He loved all his gifts and he even got an extra one from someone above. It snowed! First snow of the holiday. Everyone loved it. We hoped it would stick for when Kenzie got here but it rained the next day and melted away. It was fun while it lasted and there will be more I am sure.
