Christmas 2008


We had a wonderful Christmas this year and the kids were thrilled to get riding toys from Santa.  Miss Tess had been asking for roller skates EVERYDAY for at least a year, so the big man figured it was time to give in!
We were blessed to have Fafa and Punkin join us for Christmas.  We always love having them here.  We're excited for our big road trip in February to Seattle!  Watch out Fafa and Punkin, it will be a loud ride!
Within the first few seconds with her gear on, she was on her bum!  She's getting better, next step - OUTSIDE!
Owen LOVES his new bike!  He would ride it all day if you let him.
Our tree turned out so nice this year.  Brandon is so good at taking his time and making it look so nice.  I felt I should take it down cuz he went through all the hard work of putting it up.....let's just say - it was a HUGE chore to take down and get out the door!!
Hhhmmm.....how many men does it take to put together a trike??!!
Santa brought goodies and new underwear in our stockings this year!
Porter wasn't quite sure how he felt about being upgraded to plain white undies!  I guess we're getting too old for the character underwear!
Owen was just happy to get some candy.  And yes......Santa got him underwear too.......Santa knows that Mommy is anxious to get Owen potty-trained!

Once again, we had  wonderful time during Christmas and feel blessed to have shared it with my grandparents and everyone else we chatted with on the phone and the ichat.  It's sad to see all the decorations tucked away and our home back to normal.  I love the Christmas season and am always sad when it passes.

Rusty: Dad, this tree won't fit in our back yard.
Clark: It's not going in the yard, Russ. It's going in the living room.

Clark: I give you the Griswold Family Christmas Tree.
