Opening presents

This year we decided to open presents at midnight instead of in the morning, well, actually I thought it would be a nice, new tradition since we are older now and everybody went for it!

Bridget didn't want me to post this, that's why it's on here!

Pat got a magnifying glass this year!! I think it will be used more like a toy then for really seeing!

Once of Gyllyan's Christmas gifts was bubbles ~ she loves to blow bubbles ~ so before I took her home we stopped by my aunt & uncle's house where my stepmom was watching my cousins for the day so Gyllyan could see "Passy" ... we took the bubbles with us since she wanted to blow bubbles all weekend!

Love this pic even though it is not in focus at all!
I love how her pigtails are sticking straight out
while she was chasing the bubbles


not looking to happy but it was getting kinda chilly out &

their poor little hands were getting cold from the wet bubbles

Dana's birthday

I wish I would have found these about a week earlier when it was Dana's birthday ~ a few years ago for her birthday I got her a ticket to go to NYC (her favorite place) with a bunch of us to see the Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall ... we had a good time but I remember it was a very busy & cold that day in NYC!

Today is such a nasty, rainy day that Gyllyan and I have not even gotten out of our PJ's yet..we have played with puzzles, colored, played with play-do, watched movies and in between I have been having fun playing with my scanner!!! I love my new toy!

My Christmas with Gyllyan

Again this year my parents & sister came over this morning for breakfast & to open their present & my presents to Gyllyan...this year was alot more fun since she understands presents and loves to open them! I told her when she woke up that they were coming over to open presents & she couldn't wait for them to get here! She was so excited!!
