No Coal for the Browns!!!

Christmas morning and day was great!!! Bree woke up in the middle of the night with a fever and she ended up having the same as Owen, but we still managed to have a great day...it just included lots of cuddling of our baby girl :)....here are tons of pictures of the kids loot, them opening presents, going to Nonna and Poppy's for breakfast and opening presents, then going to Nana and Papa's to open presents and Christmas lunch, and then back to Nonna and Poppys for Christmas dinner....long, but fun day, and we would not have it any other way!!  One funny - I had outfits planned for Christmas Day, but Owen got a new Razorback hoodie and hat for Christmas and INSISTED on wearing it, so since Daddy did to, we just let them wear them :)...and Owen has black on his face because Poppy got him that black stuff for under his eyes for Christmas and since we have had gray/black on her face at ALL TIMES!

 Had to sneak in the awesome present that my hubs got me this year!!! This purse and wallet, along with new perfume!!!  I surprised him for the first time in 14 years with his gift...a flashlight/laser for one of his handguns.  He was shocked and I was so proud of myself :)!!!

Sweet baby!!!  That was our Christmas!!!  I am so thankful for my family and my Savior that gave me all these blessings!!!! 


Santa is coming! Santa is coming!

The kids were so excited when they woke up on Christmas Eve!  This year was definitely the best  year yet as the kids were really excited and Bree is at a fun age.  Our plans for Christmas Eve was to get all dressed up for Christmas Eve Service at church, then all of my Mom's side of the family to come back to my house for our annual big Christmas Eve festivities. 

Church was amazing as usual and I was so excited to dress the kids in their matching outfits that I had for months!!! The party at our house was so much fun and Santa had instructed me to give the kids early that night, "Just Dance" Wii game so that we could all dance and laugh until it hurt at each other dancing!!!  Mom and Jake gave everyone Christmas PJs and ours included monogrammed tops :).  It was a fantastic night and the kids literally passed out without laying out cookies for Santa!!  By the end of the night, Bree started showing signs of the same sickies that Owen had the day before in SDC (which he was over that morning), so we knew we were going to have a sick baby on Christmas Day...but she was still in good spirits!

Shane and I decided to change up Santa tradition this year and wrap all their presents from Santa.  We loved how it turned out, but we made a rookie mistake and did not wrap anything until that night!!! We were up until 3am!!!!!  It was fun and the kids had a great Christmas morning...but before we get there, here are tons of pics from our Christmas Eve (once again, Thanks Aunt Tara!)...

Up next, Christmas morning!!!!!!
