Merry Christmas 20009!!!!!

Christmas at our house was wonderful this year. We woke up to a white Christmas in Texas!!!! The kids didn't get up too early and Grandma Bergen even had to send them down to get up Mom and Dad. That might be a first for a Grandma to have to send the kids in! Part of that may have been because Paisley was already snuggled in bed with us and didn't realize it was a day to wake up early and open presents. We opened presents in our traditional family way were one person gets a gift and we all watch as they open it then that person gets to pick a gift for the next person. This makes Christmas morning last so much longer and we all get to enjoy seeing what was given. It was a very merry Christmas with Grandma and John joining us. But the best part this year was that the kids all wrote letters to eachother and they did a really fantastic job, said the sweetest things, and made eachother so happy.
The kids all lined up being tortured while waiting for Daddy to give the OK
John's elbow had a run-in with Luke's eye the night before

Three of John's favorite things.... KIA and The Tigers and Korean socks

Phoebe was soo happy to finally get her own set of scriptures

Paisley LOVES Tinkerbell

You should have seen the joy on Ethen's face when he opened this warm hat from Nana and Papa. A perfect replacement to the one he lost while in Korea after only having it a few days.

Luke Skywalker!!!

The cutest hat and gloves EVER sent from Korea!!!

Sheer joy in those eyes after asking for a DS for 4 years

Can't believe Santa brought an Ipod Touch

hopefully not Kia's last Christmas

Christmas Eve, Eve

We had our annual Christmas Eve, Eve party this year with good friends. Santa and Mrs. Clause came and delivered pajamas to all the kids. The nativity was a hit again and went very smoothly even though there are sooo many kids :) Phoebe was Mary this year, Ethen and Luke were shepherds, and Paisley was an angel/fairy!
