Christmas 2011

Christmas was great this year. With Brody, Baxlyn, Kylee & Korbin being almost 3 years old (WOW!) they are starting to grasp the whole idea of the season. They knew it was Jesus’ birthday and because of that we were having a big party, birthday cake and all!

We spent Christmas Eve with Bret’s family, starting at Mamaw’s house. This year unlike the two years past, the quads knew how to open presents themselves and waited for nobody. Between trying to read name tags on gifts, looking at what they were opening and encouraging them to take a moment to breathe, I found myself lagging behind in the picture taking department! Below is Kylee with the FIRST gift she opened. Inside her new backpack was a bag of chocolate goldfish that she had never had before. She sat on the fire place and didn’t open another present the entire time. She held that bag, scarfed those fish down as fast as she could and snapped at anyone who came near. DO NOT mess with Kylee and food.

While Kylee was in her own world the other three proceeded to open their gifts (including Kylee’s). Here’s a picture of Brody with another brand new Mickey, spoiled lil’ boy!

Papaw helping Korbin open a gift. Korbin INSISTED on wearing a bow that evening. This little one managed to stay stuck to his head for hours that night!  Christmas 1 362Brody & Uncle BradleyChristmas 1 494Sweet Sisters :)Christmas 1 407Christmas 1 431Christmas 1 368The boys making sure Santa’s cookies and milk were in just the right spot before heading off to bed on Christmas Eve!Christmas 1 506Christmas morning Kylee was the one most concerned about the cookies being gone. Here we are a week past Christmas and she’s still talking about how Santa ate the cookies and drank the milk! xmas2011 007Santa brought the girls a kitchen and the boys a tool set. Both were set up and ready to play with Christmas morning. Like Christmas Eve, the babies wanted NOTHING to do with opening more gifts!xmas2011 036xmas2011 078xmas2011 018I took several group pics of them that morning and this, unfortunately, is the best one I ended up with. We have Brody smiling (not sure what at… but smiling), Baxlyn chewing her finger, Kylee upset about something and Korbin….apparently checking out Barbie’s hind end. Nice. No joke peeps, this is the best one.xmas2011 155Kylee & Mommyxmas2011 044N   Below we have Baxlyn opening (what we didn’t realize at the time) THE gift of 2011. You may remember the vacuum from last year? Yeah, this Baby Alive was the toy to have this year. xmas2011 060 Thank GOODNESS my mom and sister had another one at their house waiting later that day. You can see by the look on their faces that one was just not going to cut it!xmas2011 071    Just a few short hours later Kylee is happy as can be when they receive the other Baby Alive!xmas2011 181 Kylee & Papa looking at the picture in his new frame!xmas2011 184Korbin sharing sugars with Nana!xmas2011 196xmas2011 246 The piano from Uncle Brian was also a big hit.
