Henry needed a little nap after opening all those presents.
Scott giving Millie some attention, she is so neglected! Ha!

Pretty cute "Matthew grin"
He was tired of me taking pictures.
A pretty good one that I wanted at the end of this post to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
Still not comfortable yet.
I am sure this is common but the challenge this year was not the three month old, that leaves the 3 1/2 year old. She was so silly and not really interested in doing what we would ask her to do that it made getting the picture really hard! I was going for anything, we started out trying to get a good picture of both of them together but Abigail was getting wild and not really wanting to hold Henry up so Matthew said lets just do some separately and put two separate pictures on the card. I think I took 254 pictures to get the ones I used on the card and turns out I was able to put individuals and one picture together. It helped that the picture had to be cropped so much I could take out the flying arms and ugly background things I didn't want in the picture.
I can't believe Christmas is almost here! It looks like Santa will come to our house tomorrow night (23rd) so that we can go to Paris/Camden to my grandparents for Christmas eve dinner and presents. I am finally done shopping and so I am ready for Christmas to get here. Every year with Abigail gets more fun. She is excited and really has no requests about presents so I hope she likes what we picked out. She liked talking to Santa this year and we have a good picture this year that I will get on here soon. We saw him at Bass Pro Shop and that was much better than the mall. Abigial told me the Santa at the mall was scary. It was laid back there and there were lots of things for kids to do in their Christmas village so she just walked right up to him. It probablly helped that we got there about 15 minutes early from when the sign said Santa started seeing visitors, but Santa waved to us to come on up and Abigail went right up to him and started talking. Up until this point she was not interested in Santa and nothing you could say made her want to see him up close. She was ready to sacrifice her toys that he might bring her as long as we didn't take her to sit on his lap. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!
