leading up to Christmas

I usually have a lot more Christmas spirit but this year I just didn't really get into it. I have no reason other than I just didn't really feel like it... lol. And I feel like every person in my life has more than everything they need and want, and what's fun buying people things they just think of because they have to think of something to tell you so you can spend money. I do have small children so I had to suck it up and try to make it magical for them. :)

Cayson's first time to see Santa and he had no tears!
Jaxi third time to see Santa and first time with no tears!

Preston first time to see Santa and he had no clue what was going on so he had no tears :)

I love my kids and they are what made my Christmas season!

Allen Christmas 2013

Better late then never with the holiday post I love to be able to look back on all of our holidays as a family! We had Brett and Brenda's Christmas first this year! With Shane's works schedule we have to fit Christmas's in when we can... The day we decided to open presents we got an ice storm and lost power about an hour before dark. So we had to rush and open presents because we had already told the kids they could and we didn't know how long we would be without electric.

Bree, Scott, and Sawyer

Sawyer and Jarrett waiting patiently :)

Bree ripping into some gifts!

Jarrett is so fun to watch open presents because everything he opens is just what he always wanted :)

After church the next day Cayson was so worn out from all the festivities I had set him in his high chair and turned around to get him a cracker then turned back a round to hand it to him and he had fallen a sleep and then slept in his high chair for and hour and a half!!!
