Christmas - Part One

We started our Christmas celebration with Mark's family on the eve of Christmas Eve, and we all had a wonderful time!  We enjoyed some nice hot Taco Soup and lots of laughs!  The kids came home with so many great surprises, they didn't know what to play with first.  Mark and I were also given several really nice gifts to enjoy.  Here are a couple of snapshots from our evening:

Uncle Myles & Angela surprised Austin with a Tonka truck set.  As soon as Austin opened them, he immediately sat in the back of the dump truck.  He loves them both...even if he can't figure out how to fit inside the tractor... ;-)

Here is Katie opening one of her surprises...The Little Mermaid Trilogy! 

There aren't many pictures of Katie "enjoying" her presents...much of the evening, she was glued to Nana & Pawpaw's TV, watching a movie.  She didn't even want to open presents...she just wanted to watch a movie.  Who is this kid??

Here is Austin enjoying his little truck from his great-grandparents!

And our "family gift" this year...a Wii for our family to enjoy!  Katie had so much fun playing this (when we finally talked her into turning off her movie)...and so did everyone else...even Great-Grandma Evans!!  I think we're in for lots of family fun with this...

I'll try to post a little more of our Christmas as I can...but you must be patient, for I am packing us up to leave early tomorrow morning for a week of more Christmas with my family!  I hope your Christmas was as special as our's has been!
