Christmas at our house

The kids open their presents in front of aunt Sarah.

Lizzie opens presents dressed in her Sunday best!

Stockings hold goodies too!

It takes a crew to put things together.

We don't have many pictures of our best photographer.
This one is blurry so that tells you I'm not the best photographer.
Lori is checking out her new kindle cover and light.

Christmas is high tech, using the video cameras to watch gift opening.
We miss you Sarah and Rusty!

A lady and her castle.

Sharing a sweet moment with her Daddy.

The oak handmade back pack was a hit with Jeremy!
 Dudenhoeffer's baskets are awesome.
So an awesome basket, for an awesome son.

Dinner time! Santa is ready.

The menu:
 baked ham, broccoli casserole, 2 cranberry salads, river potatoes, and grandma's fruit salad!

Aunt Sarah and Uncle Rusty bought Alex the blacksmith shop lego set.
It took a real blacksmith for the assembly.

This is the morning after photo.
 No need to do dishes with company,
it's time to visit and watch the kids with their gifts,
 the big kids too!

It looks like you had a wonderful family celebration.

Love Lizzie's castle!

We left our dishes to do later, too. :)

Looks like you had a fantastic time! My counters still have dishes on them too! LOL!!! I've got to go put them away soon - my sister's coming over, she's the "Clean Queen" so off I go! Happy New Year!

My morning after picture would have looked a whole lot worse than yours. So I didn't take one.

It looked like everyone had a wonderful time. I'm still finding snippets of wrapping paper everywhere!
