So many pics, so little time......

Yep, it is now Dec. 30 and because I didn't blog over the past couple days, I now have way to many things to post. I won't be offended if you don't read everything, and just want to look at the pics, you will get the general gist, at least I warned you. Basically, we had a very Merry Christmas and then some.......


Christmas Eve
It all started with a lunchtime run to the Pizza Hut in Toole for the all you can eat pizza buffet. (it is a Fulks family tradition) Then that night Jason and Stacy & crew and my Parents came over for an "appetizer dinner" (why in the world did we not take pics?) The spread was awesome and we all ate way too much, but I digress. It was yummy. After dinner, The boys helped Grandma and Papa build a gingerbread train. (I never knew they would have that much fun with cookies, icing and candy...oh, and Grandma and Papa too.)

Grandma and Papa and the boys were so proud of their creation!
Didn't it turn out cute?
Then the boys opened their PJ's and slippers (one of my favorite traditions that I have done since I was a kid) and we all sang Christmas Carols.

Christmas Morning
Mojo got "a hippopotomus for christmas" the boys love singing that song to her. (thanks Aunt KT)After her stocking and her hippo, Mo was ready for a nap.Teenie got her traditional rawhide bone and a new sweater. It was a Merry Christmas for everyone!Grey Bear got this very cute elmo karaoke machine and a gloworm which he loves so very much. He is either singing or snuggling his gloworm (he also got a 1 man tent and is so excited to put it up)Master William got all that he wanted for Christmas, Transformers and Star Wars. He actually got several transformers and we spent half the morning trying to figure out how to convert them. We actually had to keep the instructions around for a couple of them. They were in heaven all day. I think Grey had eaten alsmost everything in his stocking by 9:00.
I was so excited to give Brian his gifts this year because for once, it was a suprise. He was starting to get worried that I hadn't gotten anything for him, I hid them well :) My sweet hubby is a gift hunter and prides himself on guessing what the gift is before he actually receives it so it took planning but I finally pulled it off. This yea Bri got a wii fit and some sweet cordless power tools.This is Bri's "game on" wii face (if you think you are good at Tennis, someone please challenge my husband, I think he is undefeated)

Out with the old and in with the newWhat did Toni get for Christmas this year? I thought I knew what I was getting. Let's just say that I was wishing and hoping and dreaming of a new digital camera. One that perhaps the batteries last longer than 2 hours and you don't have to wait 5 minutes for the flash to reload. I was pretty sure that I knew that was what I was gettig, but my dear sweet hubby had other plans. Much to my suprise tucked in next to my stocking was a very small jewelry box. I was slightly disappointed, but excited as to what in the world was in that little box. Christmas morning I was so stoked to open it and what was inside????? A 2 gb memory card!!!!!! and what does this amazing little card belong to you ask? My brand new Nikon D60!!!!!!! "Holy Crapface!!!!" yep, those were my exact words. I have never been so excited, I just wish that I knew how to use the dang thing! I have some reading to do, but the little I know about it, I have had so much fun snapping photos. That my friends is whole other post :)

I accept the challenge to play Brian- has he learned the "speed serve" yet? Mitch and I are pretty good, that would be fun! toni, where did Teenie get his sweater? We need one for Pip, but I want a cute one like yours. I am totally jealous about the camera! No fair, now you can take awesome pics AND do awesome things with them! Sounds like a great Christmas! Love you guys!
