Christmas 2012

Georgia got a tree for her room this year!
Hello Kitty but of course :)
She loved going and sitting on the floor by her tree and looking at it...
then unplugging it and trying to plug it back in, etc... 
Mr. Charlie called me into her room one night and said, "Hey mom!  Come see.  I look like Elf on the Shelf!"
hahahha..he really did! 
This Christmas spent with my side of the family.
The kids had a 1/2 day on Thursday.
We loaded everything in the car [presents and all] on Thursday night then got up Friday morning and drove to Destin to my mom's.

Everything started out grand.
Then fever hit Charlie.
Then throwing up.
Next thing we know, Georgia is running fever.
I came down with it next.

Lana ended up with it.

It sucked.
We drove back home the day after Christmas.
I took all of us to the Dr.

Charlie had pneumonia.
Georgia had croup and flu and ear infection.
I had bronchitis and flu...

So needless to say, we had a low key Christmas.
Lots of handwashing and not touching each other...
Jackson never got sick.
Him and Uncle Beau were into Lego building. 
I cooked all day on Christmas and we had a really nice meal that evening.
It was our first time eating at the dining room table!
Roasted Turkey
Carrot Souffle
Mashed Potatoes
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Cheese Ball
Cheese Platter
Artichoke Dip
Veggie Tray
Pumpkin Pie
Key Lime Pie 
The Sunday before Christmas my mom, Lana, Ryan and I went to Vintij for a girls lunch.
It is our favorite place to go! 
Jackson enjoyed a fun game of War with Cori [Steve's nurse]. 
Christmas Morning!
Looks like Santa came! 
Georgia was inspecting her 4-wheeler. 
Poor thing was running fever.
Charlie was feeling much better by today. 
It took some coaxing to get her on the thing! 
Pappa unwrapping gifts. 
She was so intentional with opening her took FOREVER! strip of measly paper at a time!
We didn't all wake up till 8am Christmas morning and were done unwrapping at 9:30! 
a new dress from Uncle Beau and Ryan! 
Yes, the fat cat was with us.
He got a catnip filled tray of sushi toys.
Legos of course! 
And a Nerf gun that I hate already... 
Taking her sweet time with this one! 
Two twin cabbage patch dolls.
That should keep this little mamma busy :) 
Uncle Beau unwrapping... 
they were ripping into everything. 
Ms Ryan  
out of focus Nonna and Georgia 
Aunt Lana was excited to unwrap her Keurig she's been wanting! 
Texas girl :) 
Me and Mr claus :) 
Daddy always gets the biggest gift under the tree! 
Mom's beautiful Christmas tree 
Lana and Ryan putting together a puzzle on Christmas day. 
I know I've explained my Mom's tradition of the "pickle".
She has this tiny pickle ornament, like 2 inches long.
She hides it and whoever finds it gets $100!
I found it two years ago :)
Beau found it this year!!
It was soooo hard to find this year!
It took us a good 10 minutes!

Despite the sickness that we passed around, it was a great Christmas!
We enjoyed Beau and Ryan's company and just being all together.

Dance Party 4 competition commenced not too soon after dinner :)
I own everyone.
