Merry Christmas! Ok I know it was more than a month ago but I'm slowly getting caught up on the blogging. Christmas came and went so fast this year. I'll be honest, it didn't really feel like christmas for most of it. Maybe because we were so busy the whole time. I wish I would have gotten pictures of the house. Logan went all out on decorating the outside with lights. We're paying for it now! Our electricity bill was over 200 dollars!! Are you kidding me! There was an artical in the paper last week about the electricity cost in Fresno compared to other cities and apparently it is outrageously priced here. More than San Diego and L.A. by a long shot!. We didn't know that before Logans decorating extravaganza... but I'm sure he would have done it anyway. So, the decorations were great and Christmas Eve and Day were both a lot of fun.

Christmas Eve

We went out to eat with the Henderson side of the family. Tahoe Joes was great! We love food... especially a good steak. :)

Afterwards we came home and played and got ready for Dad to go to work. Yes he had to work the night shift Christmas Eve. It will be a great year when he no longer has to work on holidays and continually go so long without sleep! Poor guy!

Afton playing Peek-a-boo with the blanket. She was crackin herself up.

A Christmas Eve picture of us. Sad to see Logan go.

Look at those eyes! I love them. People ask me often what color her eyes are because they just can't tell. Everyone see's them as something different. I just tell them they're dark. We really don't know. They are this weird greenish grey around the outside and then uneven specs of brown around the pupil. So it's easier to just say dark.

I know not the most flattering picture of me!

Getting ready for bed and for Santa to come!

And he came!!! Even though she's been throwing naughty tantrums! :)

Up bright and early!

Of course the first thing she ran for was the ball. She loves balls.

Climbing in her chair. It was a hit and still is.
Eating breakfast and Grandma and Grandpa's. Every year we have eggs benedict. It's so good... but only if the egg is cooked all the way through. Afton had a candy cane for breakfast. She saw it in my stocking and knew exactly what it was. She wouldn't give it up after that and we didn't want to start fights on Christmas morning!

She put the rest of the candy cane in her mouth sideways. Aunt Ashlee had to help her get it un-stuck! haha

Logan came home and changed into his new Christmas pj's. He couldn't wait to get out of work clothes!

Opening her first present

Aunt Christa got her a cell phone and as you can tell it was a hit. She still loves it!

Uncle Micheal found her this stuffed iguana in memory of my loved pet Walter.

A little after noon we headed over to the Henderson side to open up presents there. Afton's new obsession is chairs. Any chair. She kept sneaking in Avery's new chair that she got for Christmas... Avery wasn't to happy about that. Robbie finally snuck it back in the car to keep the peace! :)

Logan playing with Afton's new recorder.

She loves all her new toys!
