Christmas 2009

We had an AMAZING Christmas this year!! Here are some of the fun things we did!!

Dibble Christmas Party

Abigail, Lauren and Raiyah singing Jingle Bells & Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer for the program!

Beckstead Christmas Party

My Grandpa Beckstead made these for everyone in the family!!

Chrismas Eve.. My cousin Sean came over and gave the girls his present to them.. They LOVE Sean!!

Christmas Eve we went over to the Grandma and Grandpa Flanders and had a Christmas dinner and opened presents!!

Getting ready to go to bed so Santa can come!! They didn't go to sleep until 11pm though!! They were TOO excited!

Christmas Day!!!
Abigail received a new "real" camera from Santa this year. Now she has a better camera than we do!! So we let Abby take the pictures this year!

This is at Grandma and Grandpa Beckstead's house Christmas Morning...

Jason, Sally and Elyse

Daddy and Lauren

Robin, Brett and Kylie

Christmas afternoon we went to my grandma and grandpa Browns house...

Christmas Evening we went to Aunt Mazie's home for Christmas dinner and more fun!!

Aunt Gina and Abigail

This is why Lauren isn't in most of the pictures!! She fell asleep in the car on the way to Aunt Mazie's house and then slept through all the craziness for at least 2 hours!! I finally had to wake her up!!

Sledding and Gingerbread Houses/Train

Abby and Lauren both thought it would be fun to pretend to sleep in the snow!! :)

In Murray, we didn't get TONS of snow, so this is the little snow"woman" we built! They all had a blast!!

I am so sad!! My camera's battery kept running out, so I missed taking pictures of the best part of sledding!! By the time I got the camera back Abby was still having a blast, but Lauren was SO tired!! They both did LOVE it though!!

This year we decided to buy Abby and Lauren each their own gingerbread thing. Lauren wanted to do a house and Abby wanted to do a train. Here are their cute creations!!
