Christmas 2013

Christmas was at our house this year, and we had a great time! Rhylah still fit into the dress I made her last year and even better, she WANTED to wear it! Seeing her in it just made my heart melt. The most popular gifts of the year included bean bags for all the kiddos, a drum practice pad and headphones for Gabriel, and Disney Princess Elsa/FROZEN dress and acessories for Rhylah and a Kinex Roller coaster and glow in the dark planets for Asher. Of course, we had our Christmas Feast, which started in my family years and years ago when we had only a little money and dad went out and bought pickles and tiny ham salad sandwiches for Christmas Eve dinner. Now, it has blossomed into a full scale extravaganza, with chicken wings and pot stickers, multiple kinds of cheeses, raw beef and onions and little smokies. SOOO yummy! But it's always a good reminder that everything we have is a gift from God!
The kids enjoy the FEAST!

My parents are taking Gabe to Italy. This was one of his clues.
It took him awhile to figure it out...
