Christmas 2012

Well I thought this post was a tad bit over due and apparently I never posted it.  My goodness time is flying by, all three of our kids are growing up way too fast.  I guess better late than never, right?!?!?!?

It's the "Christmas Post" ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeeeeahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are watching a Christmas special on television odds are it's "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" for the 1000 time...........................  I love it they are all sooooo cute!!!  We let them open one gift together on December 23rd, Mada left the next day for Utah to spend Christmas with her Dad!!!

We had so many deliver at our door that turned out to be BIG boxes of gifts that now every time the door bell rings Max yells out "presents" and runs to the door!!!  We are just so blessed and lucky!!  

As you can see from the picture Zoe is thrilled to be taking the photo...  Actually Sarah had suggested we eat breakfast first before opening presents and oddly enough Zoe was cool with it in fact she thought it was a great idea, Max on the other hand is a normal child and wanted no part of that idea....  Max won!!!

It's our first Christmas all together in California and as usual the presents were over whelming.  After the first gift it all became a blurrrrrrrr.................  The kids would open one present and barely look at it before requesting the next.  The challenge was slowing them down.

Max got a new Strider (blance) bike from Santa Claus and Zoe got a scooter just like her big sister Mada except pink was the only acceptable color.

Dad's visit to California

Mada is doing AMAZING in school!!!  While this is the first time she has shared the outstanding news with us, it is NOT the first time.  Apparently the other certificates are......................somewhere she has no clue where.  Regardless, she is consistently on the honor roll and we could not be more proud of her!!!!
