Holiday Flashback II

Christmas was so fun this year! This was Rogan's first year to really understand what was going on, and the first year that he did not burst into tears on Santa's lap. They were both really into the lights and decorations, and we are lucky enough to live directly across the street from some of the most exuberant decorators ever! Chris worked really hard on Rogan's gift this year. He made him "Sodor", the Island where Thomas the train lives. He made it to where it can be easily lifted off of the train table so that Rogan still has a place to play cars when the mood hits him :) . Ameryn got a beautiful Lee Middleton doll, whom she named "Alice." We spent Christmas eve with Chris' side of the family. Rogan was very excited at the sight of all the gifts around the tree! Ameryn was so happy to get to show off her Christmas dress (that she bought with her own money:).
I was able to sneak some good shots of Sonny, Chris' Grandfather on his Dad's side.
"Pease can I open pwesents Kay?"
That's a heavy one!
Ameryn loves jewelry!
Uncle John is helping her out with her Barbie :)
Pop and Sonny (Pop is Chris' Mom's Dad).
Rogan was so worn out that he fell asleep on the way home. And stayed asleep through getting him out of the car, into the house,...
and getting his jammies on! Ameryn set out brownies (that's how we roll) and milk for Santa, and some carrots for the reindeer before jumping into bed. While visions of sugar plums danced in there heads,
Santa dropped by and left them some great things!
Their favorites; however, came from Chris and me!
This is Ameryn's Lee Middleton doll she named "Alice,"
and here is Rogan's awesome "Island of Sodor"
complete with a sound board for real train noises and Sodor theme songs! Altogether we had such a wonderful Christmas this year, full of friends, family, and fun! I hope that your Christmas was as great as ours was!
