Santa came to our house

Santa came to our house Christmas Eve morning. We hadn't taken her picture with Santa yet, so we asked him to come over. Ben, Sam, Mallori and Ashlee also came over to get a picture with Santa.

We had a great Christmas Eve with Britt's family. We got a flag from Lim and Erin. A flag you say why a flag? Well Lim is in Iraq right now serving and protecting the freedoms of our country and other's in this world and he thought it would be cool to send us a flag. This flag is a special one though it was flown on a mission in Iraq. Along with this flag comes a certificate stating when it was flown, the mission and that it is presented to our family. It is very cool, Britt even got teary eyed. We had a great dinner and enjoyed watching the kids open presents and play with each other. Kids love chocolate fountains...at least the kids in our family do. They dipped and ate all night long. I also played Silent Night on the piano for everyone to sing to. I was so nervous, i just sat down without saying anything and started to play. I did OK! We stayed really late, but had a great time. Thanks Bergman's for a great Christmas Eve!

Today we woke and decided to give her a bottle first so she would be happy for presents. When I brought her out of her room she saw the lights on the tree and headed for it. She had that wonderful look of joy in her eyes, it was beautiful. She opened her presents and had to play with each one. We went over to Jen and Joe's to give Ashlee her presents and wish them a Merry Christmas then hit Grandma and Grandpa Martin's. They got us the Planet Earth series. If you haven't seen it and love our planet and the beauty that God has created for us then this is one you will love. We asked for it and have been watching it all day. Spectacular, I am so glad they got it for us! Alexis got presents too, but was so ready for a nap that she wasn't willing to even open them she just wanted to play with them once they were open! We again had a yummy dinner and enjoyed time with our family! Thank you Martin's for a great Christmas day! Oh yeah and it snowed today. Nothing stuck but it was sure coming down, it hasn't snow on Christmas for us since we moved to Washington state 20 years ago!

The reason for this goofy picture is because Alexis was looking at the pictures as we took them with the remote! She would laugh every time the picture showed up, so we made silly faces at her! We are at home now relaxing and spending some time together! We hope you all had a great Christmas and a safe one. We love you and are grateful for our Savior. Notice the matching jamas, I made them!!!
