Looking back at Christmas

We had a lot of fun preparing for Christmas this year. The children and I made ornaments and fudge, cookies and wreaths. This year Jessica mad a wreath all by herself. She started by cutting "hands" or pieces of green from the boughs. Then she wrapped them with floral wire to her wreath ring. Finally she decorated it... here she is with the finished product!! Great Job Jess. We had so much fun listening to music and decorating our tree... here are the children with the end result. By the time Christmas was over Nelson had removed just about every ornament from the lower branches!

This is Christmas morning. Jessica and Sarah woke up before six but they were instructed not to come to our room until after 6am. We ended up waking Sammy and Carrie up, you can see here that they were Not the first ones down the stairs!!

Ranny bought the girls these cute dresses for Christmas. I am not sure how much longer I am going to get away with dressing them the same but I am going to enjoy it while I can. They really weren't cooperating here!!

Pam makes stockings for everyone in the family. This picture shows all of them lined up and full! There are 28... that is a lot of people and a lot of work to hand make all of these beautiful stockings. We are grateful for her dedication to making sure that everyone has a stocking!

And here are the 28 people that go with the stockings. It was so much fun to have the Everitt family all together for the holidays!!

And here we are... this picture was taken on New Years Eve (day). Happy New Year Everyone!!!

Cute pics!! I love all the stockings hanging up the stairs. The family pic came out great too. I copied it to our computer so we have an updated one to quiz Emmy with.
