Christmas Day

Santa came! We woke up Christmas morning (a lot later than 6 am, since there is no one under 23 in the house!) and opened our presents from each other. Some of the highlights were Mike and I got a new laptop, we have some new games, dvd's, and clothes. My parents got a new fire pit and I made my mom a scrapbook of our yearly Christmas pictures (from when I was a baby)and my dad a shadow box of his Marine pictures and medals. They both turned out really amazing! Brad got a new weight bench, shoes, games, etc. and my grandma got lots of puzzles and clothes too. It is always my favorite thing to pick presents out for family members! I love gift-giving...and Mike can tell ya...I love spending money! Kelli and Kris brought their two dogs, Lucy and Koby, and Jack was introduced to them. :) At first, they weren't too sure of each other, but once they were worn out from playing fetch, they were okay with each other. We had a great Christmas lunch of turkey, mashed potatoes, salad, dressing, corn, rolls....thank you mom and grandma! It was yummy! We were in St. Louis from the 22nd to the 25th and Mike, Jack and I had a great visit with my parents, brother, sister and her hubby and my grandma. We headed back to Columbia after lunch to put our presents in the house, get another suitcase full of clothes and went to drop Jack off at Mike's parents house. They are going to watch him until the 29th when we get back. We are celebrating our 5th anniversary down at Osage Beach.....I still can't believe it's been 5 years! I'm sure I'll have lots more pictures to post later...we are celebrating the Laughlin side on the 29th-1st! Enjoy!
