Princess Soran got dressup clothes, a skirt and leggings, a stroller and a baby doll and a tea set.
Princess Alivia got a lot of puzzles this year (she is really good at them) and dressup clothes.
Princess Amber with her laptop. She also got a makeup kit, an umbrella, a skirt and leggings, a sew-a-bear kit, and walkie talkies.
Lyssa's favorite gift was an Ipod from her aunt. She also got a notebook, smelly bath stuff, boots, a dress and lots of jewelry.
Christian's favorite gift was a remote control jeep. He also got a new pillow, a soccer ball, a tube for sledding, and the game Sorry.
The carnage after.
The calm before.
Cracker hats 2012. Scott got the "office edition" this year so we all had useful gifts.
Holding up the walls before it falls.
We had a good Christmas this year. Highlights: Nursing home and Alyssa playing the flute while Amber sang a solo, started a new tradition of reading a story a day for the 12 days of Christmas, 12 days of Christmas for Scott, Scott's company party at La Caille, being at my work and remembering how exciting Christmas is, Christmas Eve baby blessing and party with Reeces, Christmas day at church and finally experiencing enough calm to remember the real reason for the season, surprise gifts for the kids from an anonymous donor and the most relaxing Christmas break we've ever had. Good thing, too. We needed it.
