Well, Santa did come to see the Dalkes this year, and he was oh so generous as always. We had a magical Christmas morning at home.
|Checking out what Santa left in front of the fireplace.|
|Taking it for a spin.|
|Handing out presents to the doggies.|
|Luke finally wakes up to join the party.|
|See brother, this is how you do it.|
|What's in there, Mom?|
|Trying out the new power tools.|
|I love good old fashioned wooden tools. So much fun.|
|Hungry Hungry Hippos|
|Let's see if we can make Addy's hair stick up straight.|
|We did it!|
|Time for a little boxing lesson in a princess dress, of course.|
|Still a victor.|
|Addy with her grammy.|
|The Dalkes on Christmas morning + 2 very large chocolate reindeer.|
That evening we headed over to Kristi and Jason's house (Brian's sister and her husband) to celebrate Christmas with Brian's side of the family. (It feels weird to write that. I consider them my family just as much as they are his.) We had a crazy, loud, exciting bit of fun.
|Kristi and baby Jaxson.|
|Watch this Jaxson!|
|Addison and Kylie playing Santa.|
