Christmas and beyond!

Sorry, I think Buzz Lightyear is rubbing off on me! lol Now that things are slowing down a little from all the Christmas festivities I thought I'd share a few pics from the last few days.

On Christmas morning the kids were shocked to find out that Santa had signed Ben's cast. Ben just looked at me in amazement and Olivia kept saying "what? how? huh? but how did he? what?" Too funny!
Yes, thanks to the nurses at the dr's office for planting that little idea in Ben's head!

They had so much fun enjoying all of their new gifts ~ every single one of them. Check out the Olivia the pig and reindeer that was waiting for them Christmas morning. That little piggy was just too cute!
Ben was so happy to see that Santa had brought him a talking Indiana Jones and Olivia was super excited when she opened her Littlest Pet Shop diary!

Yep, even the dogs get a little something from Santa

It's been raining since Christmas so the day after we went to see the movie "Bedtime Stories" with Adam Sandler. It was hee-larious!! You really need to go see it. You'll laugh through the entire movie and feel good at the end. Don't ya love those kind of movies! Here's Ben holding our big bag o' popcorn
And today I broke down and made a fire. I've been waiting. It's been so warm...too warm for a fire. But today I got tired of waiting for the weather too cool off and made a fire anyway! And we had Christmas smores :)
I didn't have any regular marshmallows but I did have some Christmas ones left over from making snowman soup. So we just called them Christmas smores. They were yummy just the same!I know the pics are a little dark. It's so rainy and gloomy right now and my kitchen gets no direct sunlight. You don't care, right?!

Well, I hear the boxes coming in from the garage and that means it's time to start taking down the Christmas trees. Ugh, this is the time of year that I don't like having 3 trees in my house! But, I dislike all the clutter more so I'm off to clean and put away decorations!

That Olivia the pig is so cute! I love her striped p.j.s. :)

Glad y'all had a good Christmas!

I have been waiting for the weather to get cold, too. 70 degrees at Christmas is just wrong.
Glad you had a great Christmas!
