Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! Our Christmas definitely started out early, around 4:30. Justice came in. She was so excited because "Santa had come". At around 5 o'clock we got out of bed and headed down stairs to let the girls open up their stockings. After stockings we had breakfast and opened up presents. Here is Brooklyn petting a cute little puppy that Grandma Newson got her.Justice
The girls were playing a crazy caterpillar game that they got from Santa. Brooklyn was getting frustrated because she could not get any of the marbles to stay on the caterpillar's hands.

Here is Georgia and Madison hiding out in Maddy's bed playing their Nintendo DS's.

When Matt and I asked the girls what their favorite thing that they got for Christmas this year: Justice's was her new shelf, Madison's was her DS and Georgia's was her bike. Brooklyn said hers was skittles. I was like hummm skittles, "Brooklyn you did not get skittles". Then she says to me, "no, my scooter".

Christmas Eve

After doing all sorts of running around on Christmas Eve, we headed home. Most of the evening was spent stuffing ourselves with shrimp and lobster ( the girls love it too ).Periodically through out the evening Matt and the girls would hop on the computer and see where Santa was. It was definitely driving Justice crazy, every other minute she wanted to see where he was "now". We always open up one present on Christmas Eve. New PJ's.
Justice, Georgia, Madison, Matt and Brooklyn.

Christmas With Nat, John and Boys.

Nat, John and the Boys came up for dinner and to celebrate Christmas. The girls just love it when they come up. As you can see they were acting all crazy and hyper ( which is actually pretty normal for our house. )Brooklyn got a cute little skirt that she has not taken off since she got it. We are so lucky to have such a great family to spend the holidays with!! Love you Guys!!

School Christmas Parties

Justice's teacher put on a cute skit for their christmas party this year. They did a trip on the Polar Express around the world. Brooklyn and I stopped by to see all the festivities and to say Hi to Justice.
Poor little Georgia got sick in the truck while dropping Justice off to school. She ended up missing her christmas party. Brooklyn and I got to stop by and watch the kids all sit on santas lap. Madison was so shy, so I ended up going up with her.Brooklyn was pretty excited to tell Santa what she wanted this year for christmas.

More Fun In the Snow

We took the drive up to Monte and went sledding/snowmobiling. There was so much powder the girls little legs could barely walk thru the snow. Matt would give the girls a ride to the top and then they would sled down. You can't tell by the picture but the hill is huge and you were cruzing by the time you made it to the bottom. Towards the end Brooklyn was pretty tired and it was cold up at Monte, especially with the constant snow falling. Matt and Madison pulled Justice around and King followed behind. Justice was covered in snow and did not seem to mind.

Fun In the Snow

We went to a park in Sunset that has a pretty good sized hill. You could not have asked for a better day to go sledding. BookerBee going head first with Dad and loving it! After about an hour, the hill started to get pretty crowded so we went to Clinton City Park, which we had to ourselves.
Here is Georgia getting some air. Yep, we built a tiny little ramp and the girls loved it!What is playing in the snow without a snowball fight? Dad is definitely not playing fair, he makes huge snowballs.The girls and I buried Matt in the snow. They thought it was so funny that they could stand on him.

Ginger Bread House

Tonight we decorated our gingerbread house. The girls and I definitely had some difficulties with the roof. It just would not stay up. Before you knew it one of the sides started to cave it. In the end we did manage to get the roof on, the sides up and the ginger bread house decorated. And of course Georgia and Madison would not stop eating the candy, so some of the decorations are missing.

So now that Justice is in kindergarten and Georgia and Madison have pre-school, its just dad and Brooklyn for a couple hours every Tuesday and Thursday. Out of all the girls Brooklyn is the one that definitely changes her clothes multiple times a day, which drives me nuts because the pile of laundry is ginormous to begin with. I guess it would only be natural that she would LOVE dress up. Here is what Matt saw coming down the stairs, of course it would not be complete without a little baby doll to top off the outfit.

Justice Lost Her First Tooth

Justice has been SOOOO anxious to lose a tooth. Starting last Sunday Justice woke up with a loose tooth. For the last week she has been wiggling it, and of course waiting for it to come out. Justice and I were sitting on the couch and I told her that it was getting really loose. Matt told Justice that he wanted to see too, well that was it. Matt went ahead and got himself a grip and then pulled it right out. All you heard was alittle ouch.

Starting to feel like Christmas

So now that the Christmas tree is up its starting to feel like Christmas! We finally got the tree trimmed and in the house. It was actually really hard to get the tree decorated. It was SO prickly ( never get a Scotch Pine ). Always a learning experience!

Fun with Gradma Newson

Grandma Newson has been visiting for the last week, and the girls have had so much fun playing games, listen to Christmas music, and just spending time with Grammy.We love you so much Grandma Newson!!!

Finding the Perfect Tree

This year we decided that we would have a real christmas tree. We have had a fake christmas tree for so long, I think that I forgot how imperfect real trees are. When we got to the Christmas tree farm we searched and searched to find our tree. It ended up being a really cold night and the girls really would have been happy with any tree that Matt cut down. When it came to cutting down the tree and loading it, it only took a couple of minutes.

Cant wait to get it into the house and decorate it, then it will feel like Christmas time!!
