Christmas Day 2011

I hope you all had a great Christmas! Ours had a lot of tech gizmo gifts this year, so we were all sitting around playing with them! Come join us!!!


Anne Marie and her doll had matching outfits!!

Ann waited patiently to open the gifts.

The dolls waited, too. But one couldn't make it and fell asleep.

Yes!!! She finally opened her new Leap Pad!!!

Meanwhile, our son couldn't tear himself away from the Kindle we got him.


See in this video the fun we had with the coolest gift of all!!!






"The One that God sent speaks God's words. And don't think he rations out the Spirit in bits and pieces. The Father loves the Son extravagantly. He turned everything over to him so he could give it away—a lavish distribution of gifts. That is why whoever accepts and trusts the Son gets in on everything, life complete and forever! And that is also why the person who avoids and distrusts the Son is in the dark and doesn't see life.”
John 3:34

Oh what fun! Looks like you all had a great Christmas. Those little helicopters are so much fun, looks like Phil got the hang of it in no time. Love that shot of Anne and her match doll and also the photos of you in the antlers.

Nice family pictures. I like the helicopter, I tried it once to fly with such a toy but it was very difficult.

Greetings,
Filip

Christmas is so much more exciting with children around. Anne Marie and her doll are adordable.

☺ ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺ Definitely a "5-smile" blogpost, Ginny! What a special picture of that grand-daughter and her dolly in matching outfits. And then there were the three dolls waiting for presents to open with one of them falling asleep. To be capped by two boys and their helicopter! Phil certainly has a "special touch" on the controls!!

Won't it be fun to take that helicopter outside into an open field and let it soar! So much fun! Such great photos of family togetherness and fun! Enjoy your week!

Bobbi said...

Ginny, I really enjoyed the pictures and especially the first one with Anne Marie and her doll. So cute!! Gary got a helicopter like that a few years ago and they are a lot of fun. Robby (Lindsey's bf) got one this year that blinks the most beautiful blues and greens while it's flying... so cool!! Looks like you all had an awesome Christmas. The pics of you and your family are so sweet!! Thanks for sharing with us.

Ann said...

Anne Marie's doll, you seldom get an Asian doll.

George said...

It looks as if you had a wonderful Christmas, and the gifts indicate that Santa thought you were all very good. Anne Marie is cute with her doll with the matching outfit. I think Phil is going to have a lot of fun with his helicopter.

Deborah said...
