I forgot to post these pictures of Bens amazing dessert. He made a trifle with layers of crushed up grasshopper cookies, chocolate pudding, cream cheese whipped topping and candy canes on top. It was sssssooooo good. Them we have the pictures of our gingerbread village. Bens house Jessica loved the best cause the owner cut off an intruders head. Yes he is very sick and Jessica loves it.

We went back to presents after breakfast and the kids got some great things. They got cloths and toys, Reagan got a little puppy that wags its tail and he just loves it. Our families were so good to us this Christmas with there generosity and love. We missed family like crazy today and can't wait to be together soon.
Well the first session of Christmas was a hit. I was up at 6:00 just dieing for the girls to get up. Jessica finally woke up at 8:00 and I had her get everyone up. The kids walked down the stairs youngest to oldest and when they saw the tree they went nuts. We did stockings first and Santa presents. Santa brought Jessica and Katrina a barbie, Sabrina a Tinkerbell doll and Reagan a blocks set. Then we opened Mom and Dad presents. I made the girls robes and we got them sleeping bags. They were so excited. Reagan got a truck that he really liked. After that we had breakfast of french toast and just relaxed for awhile. It was great.
When I was a little girl the Pajama Fairy would come to our house every Christmas Eve and bring us new pajamas. It is something fun that I learned from my Mom and we have started to do with our kids. They were so excited for them this year. I even did a boy pajama which is not as easy as you would think. It is a little big but at the rate Reagan is growing he will be out of it in no time at all. The girls went right to bed last night, they were so excited for Christmas to come.

I have not blogged in so long so here I go. First we went and got our Christmas tree. The kids were so excited and Reagan has only pulled it down on himself twice. My amazing Mother in-law made these great nativity's for us and the kids love them, Reagan walks around kissing them.
There is a picture of Jessica sleeping. She wanted to sleep in a laundry basket the other night. It does not look comfortable.
We had a Christmas party and Katrinas school. They sang for us and had some treats and the girls did some crafts. Katrina has the best teacher, I just love her.
We went and saw the Temple light out here. They were really nice and Reagan loved them. Ben got a great picture of a orange tree.
And then we had our gingerbread house party. The kids went nuts. It was so much fun and I will post a picture of our little village when Ben and I finish our house.
