I am pathetic

Well, I still have hopes and dreams of eventually getting caught up on this darn blog... but since that is not going to be happening any time soon, and I have had too many complaints to count... I temporarily give up. Without further ado, here are a few recent pictures of my ADORABLE children! Maybe you can look forward to another post in approximately 6 months. :-)

Almost forgot... more Christmas pics

I forgot to include a post with the Christmas pics we took at the mall. They turned out pretty cute for last minute pictures. Lila wasn't particularly smiley, but she was cute anyway. Davis was giving the best smiles I've ever seen him do for pictures, and he looked like such a handsome little man. I'm also throwing in some cousin pictures that we took for the blanket I made for Pam and Gary.

These two might be my favorite... check out Lila's finger. My dad still wants me to send these in to Ellen or Leno or something. :-)

Christmas Day

Who doesn't love Christmas morning?! It is so much more fun for me since we've had kids... the excitement is literally tangible. Our usual Christmas morning routine starts out when Davis comes in to wake us up, and we open stockings on the bed. Then we go downstairs to see what Santa brought. Davis was so cute opening his presents this year! He was so excited about everything. Lila wasn't quite as pumped, but she'll get into it next year.
After we open presents, we get ready to head back over to Brandon and Mary's for Christmas brunch. I am usually in charge of most of this, and I have to say, it's pretty yummy. We rotate the food each year, but the staple is Jane's apple pancakes (german style baked in the oven). This year we also had Ryan's homemade buttermilk pancakes and syrup, as well as cinnamon rolls, bacon, quiches, and fruit. Sooooo good!
We spent most of the day at their house so the kids could play and the adults could talk and hang out.
Around dinner time, we head over to Bry's parents' house for Christmas dinner and presents with the family. Always very yummy and very fun. By the end of the day, we are completely stuffed and completely spoiled. Can't complain about that!
