Here and gone so fast...

All the time and energy we as parents put in to Christmas and it's here and gone so fast.

Christmas eve with Frank's family
Sophia loved loved loved opening presents this year, and was so excited after each one.
If your little ones don't have this little tykes camera, go get them one. They are fantastic.
Frankie got air drum sticks that hook up to his ipod from his aunt and uncle
Electronic Monopoly for Katelyn
Little people princess castle
Christmas morning, Santa was here
Every princess needs a throne
Sophia where are you?
There you are...
Katelyn loves Abercrombie
Frankie with his Buckeyes Fathead
Frankie loved his new Jordans
Katelyn looking for her new cell phone that Santa hid in the tree, we thought she was going to knock the tree over looking for it when it rang. And we made her sweat it out, we waited until we started cleaning up and it rang and she came running out of the kitchen to see what it was? lol
Sophia's new baby. It came with the play pen, stroller and high chair. It's awesome!
And the aftermath...What a mess to clean up.

We had so much fun with the kids this year. Katelyn is getting older and it's hard to find things for her that are fun besides clothes and cell phones. Frankie is very easy to please and likes anything and doesn't ask for anything. Sophia absolutely loved all her presents. With each new thing she opened, the excitement was glowing on her face. From the very first present to the very last.

Hope everyone had a blessed holiday!

Now we move on to Sophia's birthday party on Sunday, she will be 3.
