Christmas 2010

We had a fabulous Christmas.  What a weekend.  Tons of fun with family and friends.  Here we are at mom's house Christmas Eve. 

Having our Christmas graze at moms.

Paisley was my brother Michaels helper that night.

My youngest brother Michael being Santa.

Jeneva received some great things from Spain.  This is for you Diana.

Paisley helping my other brother Steven open his gifts.

Paisley's favorite Christmas present are these pair of skates that aunt Christine and uncle Thomas gave her.  We can't keep them off her feet.

My favorite new Nike free run shoes.  They are so comfortable!!!!

My other favorite is my new yoga sandals.  Yes, I do enjoy yoga, but have not been for awhile.   They help with posture and balance.  In addition, they will be great for my monthly pedicures.  They have straps between each toe.  Very comfortable!  George gave them both to me along with some dvds I had been wanting and 5 new pride and prejudice sequel books.  Love ya!

Paisley with her stocking.

And this is also part of her stocking.  George was tasked with the stocking stuffers and this is what he bought.  Needless to say they did not fit into her stocking and his theme is pretty obvious.

Christmas morning we opened more presents.

Played with Daddy's new motion sensor stuff for his Playstation 3.  They were having a ball.
More roller skating.

I gave these to Paisley.  They are so cool.  I stood in line for these babies and they are worth it.

Paisley has such great friends that love her.  Valerie stopped by to give her this doll she just loves for her birthday present.  Thanks Valerie-we love ya!

Paisley's best friend Amira gave her these too cute hair bands.  Thanks Amira we love ya too!  Come over soon to play.

Paisley's big gift was this v tech bike game.  It hooks to the tv and she has to get a work out by pedaling.  She will also learn letters, number, colors, shapes, etc.  We can't keep her off of it.
For breakfast daddy made us monkey bread and our favorite neighbor and friend Donna Barrett gave us yummy bear claws to enjoy.  Thanks for letting me come over and spend some time with you Donna and Gus!

Saturday morning we headed down to Belfair where George's mom and Papa Nick live.  Here is Paisley helping papa Nick.

Now the pictures are out of order, but it still works.  Melissa brought along cookies and decor to have a cookie decorating competition.  Here we are making our cookies.

Here is my contribution and entry!  Love it. Great idea Melissa!

George even participated.  He is really good.

George made this for Paisley.

We could not get her off of this horse. 

I had to add this in.  This is the first time she was on the horse.  She is so grown up.  I miss the baby days already.
We had such a great time.
On our way home we were able to ride the new ferry and have Ivar's clam chowder.  So good and the ferry was nice too.  By this time you can see in her face she is wiped out.  She slept really good.

Papa Nick made us fried bread for breakfast.  My favorite.  Yum!

Papa Nick also gave Paisley a new kitty.  It looks real, but it is not.  She has it safely in her room.  Thank you Papa!
Here we are unwrapping Christmas gifts.

Paisley helping everyone with their gifts.

She loves her snow boots uncle Kona!

Trying on grandma's funny hat.

She is so spoiled and loved.

We had a fabulous Christmas.  To top it off when we got home we had a surprise visit from Kekaula and her husband Leonard.  She was visiting from Hawaii and stopped by.  Such a great treat.

We are so blessed and so thankful to all of family and friends that spoil us, take care of us and love us.
