CANDYCANE LANE


Christmas for us began with the arrival of Todd on the 21st! He drove for 60 hours straight with only 3 hours of sleep, through multiple blizzards and 13 states!!! With Todd came a new computer which I can't figure out so stay tuned for lots more pictures!


The next day we were off to buy a tree!(Next post I will have pics of this)
On Christmas Eve we were graced by none other than
SANTA CLAUSE!!!


Christmas morning was wonderful!!! Santa spoiled all of us!!!

I have wanted the American Girl Doll Samantha since I was 10! and Todd got her for me!!! I was so excited and I have no clue how he did it, because she has been 'retired'. Thank you sweetie- oh and Santa got Rylie Kit, another American Girl Doll!


We also took a day trip to Victoria to visit the UnderSea Gardens, where we saw a live show with sea creatures from around here!

Meet 'grumpy' the Octopus

After leaving the UnderSea Gardens we were greeted by over 100 ducks!


Ty decided that they ALL needed to go back in the pond! So he and Rylie single handedly chased all the ducks back into the pond.

Oh the joy of accomplishment!
Me and the rugrats

Thank You Todd for the best Christmas ever!! (I am not the best photographer, hence Livie-lou's face is not in the picture!)

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Looks like Christmas was a BLAST! I can't believe how big your kids are getting, especially the twins. And you look great, what is your secret?
