Christmas 2008

Ok- I've SO been procrastinating... I even joined Face book in an effort to feel "updated" but have yet to post on the blog about Christmas... almost a MONTH ago!! :) So- I'll spare you every little detail- and hope that the pics tell the story!! :)

Ruthie's favorite pre-Christmas toy- Reindeer antlers!! She loved to wear them on her eyes-like sunglasses- and then crawl all around the house. Amazingly enough- she never bumped into any furniture!! :) It was really cute!!

Our family after Christmas Eve candle light service. One of my favorite traditions!! After the service we went to Carrabbas to eat- it was YUMMY!!!

Santa's gifts Christmas morning!! She loved her play food and tea set!! (I loved her cute Christmas PJ's!!)

After seeing what Santa brought, opening stockings, and eating homemade cinnamon rolls and scrambled eggs for breakfast- we ripped into the presents under the tree! This magna-doodle was a gift from Mommy and Daddy!

She loves to draw!

And this stroller was is so much fun!! Her baby loves to go for walks and eat in this stroller. Ruthie is such a good little mommy!

After a wonderful morning at home, we went to Grandma and Paw-Paw's house for dinner (around 3 pm). She thought the musical decorations were so much FUN!! I don't have many pictures of this part of our day- I must have been pooped by then!! :) But, my mom was with us as was Tony's sister Mardi and her family! We had a lot of fun and eat wonderful yummy food- again!

The next day Uncle Matt and Aunt Rachel (Sa-chel as Ruthie says) came from Orlando to have "Christmas" again! On Sat. morning we eat monkey bread (do you see a theme with our Christmas... eat-eat-eat!) and opened presents!!

Ruthie playing peek-a-boo with Uncle Matt while the girls were helping to get dinner on the table!!

We forgot to get a full family pic before Matt and Rachel went back to Orlando- so here is half the family- next to the Christmas tree!! :)
