Christmas Fun and Memories

We had a great Christmas. The kids really had fun this year. I love this picture of Regan! She is just such a little munchkin!! It was amazing how easily they went to bed on Christmas Eve. Santa brought Jacob a "Guitar, with Real Strings" Which he has been playing a lot. His Uncle Dan told him that when he gets really good, he can write on it....Not sure about that one, but that is what Jake keeps telling me. So far, I've been able to keep the markers, pens, and crayons away from it...Because of course he thinks that he is "really good" now. Santa brought Sydney a "Princess Chair" and dress. The dress she immediately put on and wore most of the day. Jake went and got himself a chair so he would site next to the "princess". Hopefully all of this princess stuff doesn't go to her head! She is having fun dressing up though. Her Nana got her a few disney character dresses that she has had fun wearing also.
Jake also got the Smart Cycle. (It hooks up to the TV, and you have to ride to make the game work) Which him and Sydney have been taking turns riding. I need to get to ToysRUs to get a few games for it though. The free one isn't too great.

Until today, I had left all of the new toys spralled all over the house. Mostly because I have no idea where to put them all, and because the kids have been playing with them. Tonight I started trying to put some way.
We really enjoyed seeing all our family! So much fun. My dad was also in town from Florida. He came over last night to visit, it was nice to chat after the kids went to bed. I wish we were able to see him more.

Very cute family picture! My toys are sprawled all over as well. If I put them away, then they tend not to play with them!
