Better late than never!

So I should be packing because we're leaving for Bend in less than 3 hours, but I hate packing and I still haven't posted Christmas pics. We really didn't have it together this year, as you may have noticed we didn't send out Christmas cards either. And what's worse? We had them printed out, we just never got messages on the back and never labeled the envelopes. Oh well, here's to a new year. But before we totally move on, here you go Ninnie, here's a couple of cuties.
Christmas Eve gingerbread house making with lots of family:
Ninnie and Meri, who is showing her muscles
Hard at work
The annual Christmas Eve puppet show with lots of helpers

Christmas morning excitement in Christmas pjs
I love the excitement! We didn't have much to spend this year but they didn't care. The gifts from the dollar racks at Target were just as much fun to them to open - can't imagine that'll last forever but we'll take advantage of it while it's still here!
Then Christmas night we did something very untraditional and went to the Blazer game as a family. My dad's client gave him a luxury box and we had a blast with my parents, my siblings and sister-in-law, Aunt Patti and Uncle Jim, Uncle Craig, Grandma and Grandpa Berne, Grandma and Grandpa Smith, Coop's parents, and the Colletts. I sure hope I remembered to mention everybody. It was fun all being together on Christmas!
The girls had the time of their life and the space to roam around and say, jump on the soft chairs was very appreciated.
They would come and cheer at times too. The highlight was Jell noticed how people had made signs and got their picture on the big screen so she wrote go blazers on a pad of paper about 3 inches x 4 inches (the only paper we had) and kept holding it up for all to see.
Go blazers!

I am loving the Target dollar racks, too!! Olivia's one big Christmas wish (which Santa granted) was a Hello Kitty toothbrush and Princess toothpaste. I'll take - as I'm sure it will be an iPhone and a Coach purse soon enough!!

Your holidays look so fun! We had a bit of confusion over the snow and Christmas too, but all's well that ends well!
