I'm ready

well, except for wrapping some presents and cracking the whip on the kids to help clean.

Caden's infectious excitement for Christmas has sure helped me get in the mood.

All the kids helped make cookies yesterday.
We teased and laughed talking about Christmases past.

Like when Caden was two, he grabbed a present from under the tree to open - it was a few days before Christmas.
 Colton was going to get the present from him and chased him into the bathroom, where Caden threw it into the toilet!


We went snow machining yesterday too. 
It was cold and fun. 

How about those Packers, eh?

I'm working today so I suppose I'd better get with it. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday with your family!

Awe, so special you have those memories. Sadly I have the one of my step-daughter asking if "that's all" the first Christmas hubby and I were together because we were both flat broke and it still breaks my heart 3 years later.

Merry Christmas to the family!!
your cookies look great. Mine never seem to turn out good enough to give away, so I quit making them. I'm working today too... We are hoping the Governor will let us off early, but not sure that will happen.
Where's Sarah when you need her?

love you guys.

Merry Christmas! LOVE the Christmas photo! Everyone looks wonderful.

And so do the cookies. I'd like to stop by and get a couple, I baked a ton and gave them all away. The only evidence they existed is the stack of clean mixing bowls and cookie sheets on the drainer and the empty sugar bag in the garbage!!

Merry Christmas to you. You have brightened my year.

Your cookies are gorgeous! I'm always envious of anyone who can do good sugar cookies and then does all the decorating - beautiful! And I bet they tasted wonderful, too!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
