Before the New Year is Here...

I thought I would try to post some pictures from our Christmas day. We usually wake in the morning and go through the Santa gifts, go to my parents for breakfast(40 minutes away) and then go to Joe's parents the rest of the day(also 40 minutes away). The morning ones are not completely in order. The kids opened their stockings first and then did presents. There was a large pile of family gifts:) JiaLi in the first picture is showing her girly legos and in the second is showing her ladybug watch. Below, yes she got a monkey webkin--I'm not a big fan of having tons of webkins but we thought one would be o.k. She has been asking and asking to go on the computer--it will be interesting when I do let her try;) Well, Santa broke down and got found a coffee maker for Ms. JiaLi. She is very proud of it and has been making us breakfast every day, a few times a day:) Pepee and Papa were the popular ones Christmas day. Pepee is my Dad and Papa is Joe's Dad. Papa is seen below helping JiaLi feed her new tiger that she received from her Aunt. Here is the group shot of all the kids on Joe's side of the family. Right now there are 11 but we are looking forward to more:) Finally, here is our attempt at a group shot while at my Mom's. I love taking pictures at my Mom's house because it is so bright and I don't have to worry so much about the lighting. Happy New Year everyone--I know this is early but I want to say it in case I don't post. Connie, thanks for what you are doing to the header:) I loved it this morning with the polka dot background and I just looked and I love it even more:) Thank You!!

How sweet of her to make you all breakfast! Hope 2008 is good to your family, and is a prosperous blessed year.
