Christmas 2007

Well it is the day after Christmas and I can't believe it is over. What a busy and exciting few days. On Sunday we went to Jay's mom and dads house to celebrate with the Jeeninga's. A great time was had by all. Here is the best picture we have ever gotten of all 5 kids!! the kids
And this is a shot of the kids enjoying the awesome gift from Grandma and Grandpa Jeeninga air hockey
Oh yes it is a full size air hockey table. The kids love it. Jay and I like it too. On Sunday night Jay and I stayed up quite late playing.
On Monday we went to my Grandma's house for our Christmas celebration with my family. This is always the greatest day of the year. All of my cousins and their families are there as well as all aunts, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents. It is a full house but so much fun. This is the only time of the year we are all together with our children. Here is a picture of the boys before we left the house

This is the only time I will ever put a picture of me on the blog. Here is me with my cousin Lisa. She has been my best friend since birth and now I love to see our children playing together. She has 2 boys and then she went and had a girl in October. Not too sure what to do with her:) I am the one in purple for those of you who have never actually seen me.

On Christmas morning we actually slept in a bit. Jay, Jacob, Tyler, Camden and I were all up by 8am waiting for Sam who strolled out of bed about 8:30. After opening our stockings, each of the kids had one present under the tree. Jacob and Sam opened theirs but Tyler didn't have one. He looked a bit concerned for a moment, even fought back the tears, when Jay ran down stairs to get the video camera ready. Once ready he called Tyler down. Ty found a large blob covered by a blanket with a large bow on top. We told him to open his present and this is what he found....
the greatest xmas present

I can't believe I actually bought drums to keep in my LOUD house of boys, but there is something about finding that perfect Christmas present that tends to send all reason out the window. He was ECSTATIC to say the least.
Here is the baby on his first Christmas....

I had 3 different baby's first Christmas outfits for him to wear for each day of our Christmas's but apparently I never took any pictures of him while he was wearing them. Since he pukes a gallon every 3 minutes, none of the overpriced outfits lasted too long. At least I got him in the bib.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas, and if you didn't, at least it is over:)

I know you are all proud of me finally adding pictures to my blog. I FIGURED IT OUT!!!!! Now I need to learn how to upload videos, but don't hold your breath-it took me almost a year to get a handle on the picture situation.

Looks like a fab Christmas! LOVE that pic of all 5 kiddos. Wyatt puked all over all of his cute outfits too. You are nuts to buy drums. NEVER in a million years. You are a mother among mothers.

Oh yeah. One last thing. How 'bout them Packers? :-0

I cannot believe how old your boys are looking! WAY OLD! Do mine look that old? Tyler has always looked like Jason, but he seriously looks like a shruken him now. Mostly Jacob looks older. He must have hit a maturing stage. Yeah, mine don't look any older... they're still babies... ;-)
