Where to begin.
Christmas 2010 was crazy.
In a really, really good way.
All the wrapping and shopping for nine kiddos?
Oh, so worth it in the end.
For moments like these.
The Pillow Pets – “It’s a pillow, it’s a pet… it’s a Pillow Pet!” has been an all too familiar chorus around here for months – were a huge hit.
Did I mention they loved the Pillow Pets?
A whole lot?
Unfortunately, I didn’t think that the older-than-7 crowd was going to be placated by a Pillow Pet.
An NCAA football….
and a “Dangerous Book for Boys” made for some smiles.
And although he looks like a deer in headlights here, Zach was pretty happy with his new headphones.
And a little Bath and Body works goes a long way with my sweet Tori.
Of course, the kidlets did get a few other things… besides the Pillow Pets.
Amazingly similar to the things they loved so much last Christmas.
And while one person opened (we take turns around here) a few of the onlookers found themselves a surprisingly comfortable way…
to watch all the action.
A few more rounds of present opening…
a Zhu Zhu pet…
and a pink electric guitar later…
we were done.
Except for the finale.
Our precious baby Vivienne, who was celebrating her very first Christmas with us, was in for a surprise.
She’d been asking for a bike for months.
Suppose she thinks she’s too big for her tricycle.
And this Footcycle?
Made her smile big.
A few customary Christmas shots with our oldest kiddos,
who aren’t around all the time, were in order.
And then one of the entire crew.
Having all my babies at home with me this Christmas?
Well, there just aren’t words adequate to contain the joy that brings to this old mama’s heart.
