Christmas 2008

Wow, I can't believe that it has been almost 2 monthes since my last posting. It's been so long, it doesn't feel fun right now, with all the updates it almost feels like homework. Let's face it, homework was never anything I was great at. Well, I'm going to do a little at a time. More updating in the weeks to come!
Here is our Christmas tree after Santa came. He left a Wii for Amberly and Brenton, and a swingset for Avery and Brily.
This was my favorite dress when I was little. Dad and Susan cleaned it for me and sent it. I gave it to Amberly, and now she is wearing all around the house.
Avery and Brily got new babies and strollers. They love them so much!
Robin got a set of juggling balls. Now he is just trying to learn some new tricks.
Avery and Brily love thier new table that mom and Tracy got for them.
Mom and Tracy also got Amberly a scooter, and Brenton a go-kart. Do I even have to tell you that they love them?

Mom had Brily in a trance during a dance.
My sister got to come for Christmas this year. While she was here we celebrated her and my mom's birthdays.Here was our house all lit up. We had a wonderful Christmas!!!!

Rudolph Musical

On Tuesday Brenton's class went to Fort Worth to see Rudolph the musical. It was really good. Brenton was so excited he clapped and sang and danced the whole time. After the musical they had lunch. This is Brenton's best friend Justin. I'm so glad that they got to go. This was a really good field trip.

Santa and Mrs. Clause

On the 13th we had a get together with the Moms of Multiples group. Santa and Mrs. Clause were there. Avery and Brily were not going to have any part of Santa at all, so Robin had to get in the picture. Maybe next year they wont mind. Santa and Mrs. Clause had a very involved conversation with Amberly and Brenton. There was also a breakfast, games, and crafts. It was a lot of fun. I am really glad that I joined this group.

A Christmas celebration

Robert, Susan, Blake, and Barrett came to our house on the 6th for our community Christmas celebration. It was really cold that night too. Robin, Robert, and the girls played the cake walk. I'm am so glad that Robin won after only 3 tries. Last time he played 6 rounds, and still walked away with nothing. It was a really good cake that we all took back to the house and enjoyed later on in the evening. The babies stayed all bundled up that night.

Amberly, Brenton, and Blake had a blast dancing. It was a great night with cake, hot chocolate, dancing, games, and family.

Singing at Six Flags

On the 5th Amberly's choir class was singing at Six Flags. It was so cold that night. I would recommend to go in December if you want to go though, because there were no lines. We had yummy hot chocolate. It was so rich and creamy, not the watered down kind.

Robin, Amberly, and her friends sledded down the snow hill.

Here is Amberly and a couple of her friends with Frosty the Snowman.

We all had a cold but great time. The kids all performed really well.

Oh Christmas Tree ....

We went to get our Christmas tree on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. We went to Flowermound to a really pretty farm to get it. It was however our most expensive tree ever purchased at $80. Sorry, but all of the pictures are backwards. We had to get a gate to go around it to keep the girls out.

The kids posing in their new Christmas pajamas.

It was soooo cold! The kids wanted to sit in these buckets for the tractor train ride.

Here are all of them in front of the tree that we all picked out.
