Christmas Recap!

I realize that y'all have already read everyone's Christmas recaps...but I'm behind the game and just posting mine now. We started off by heading to my SIL Meleah's for Christmas Eve, and ended up spending most of the day playing on my BIL's Wii. Also, I really want one. With a Wii Fit. I haven't had that much fun in a long time...which is probably pretty sad! But man...that's a good workout!

I had my camera on the wrong setting, but ended up getting this funny action shot of my nephew Cooper. Love it!
The boys paying BIL David, Cooper, and my BIL Kelley.
Their dog Macy brought a special Christmas treat to the entire deer leg. GROSS, but extremely funny.
That night at my MIL's house...Santa came to visit Cooper!
Here's a shot of the adult tree. My MIL always does two trees - one in the front for the adults, and one in the back for the kids. I forgot to get a shot of the kid tree but it looked pretty ridiculous, just like this one. Presents everywhere! Here's Oscar, trying to find his presents.
Christmas day: Cooper's t-shirt. Love it!
This is my niece Jessie. How fun is her hair??! I love it!
The kids opening presents...Jessie got an Elmo bathrobe that she was pretty darn excited about!
Older sister Jaylanne got a monkey bathrobe. They are too cute.
Jessie opening the gift of the year: an Elmo sleeping bag! I had never seen her so excited...there was a lot of jumping up and down and screaming involved, but it's hard to catch that on camera.
Jaylanne also got a good one - a new bike!

My MIL spoiled me as usual with lots of new clothes...and a U of M snuggie!!!!!
Oscar ended up with a new kitty. This one is called "Awful Mad Kitty."
His favorite toys, side by side. Please note the amount of wear that "Big Mean Kitty" has on the right.
We had a wonderful Christmas, and got up early the next morning to go to Florida! I have a few photos from the trip that I will probably post tomorrow.

ALSO: How could I forget to mention the amazing Christmas gift that Matt gave me???! Remember a long time ago, I posted that I wanted this necklace? Well...imagine my surprise when it was under our tree! And he even remembered to put the initials as "M&S" so I didn't have to wear a necklace that said "S&M." Now, that's love! :)

Christmas is for the kids! Too cute!! I loved all the pictures, thanks for sharing them!

I still get a laugh every time I realize your couple initials are S&M, because I am SO mature! Such a pretty necklace tho!

Deer leg - classic.

And ... technically wouldn't Oscar's presents be located under the kid's tree? Therefore, he's looking in the wrong spot, I think.

Seriously - I'm still laughing about your text when I thought it said you SIL showed up to the door with a bloody deer leg in her mouth. Wow. I ran to Rob and was like "OMG listen to this!!"He goes "um there's no way that's what it said...check again." So good thing I did. Lesson of the day, kids. Don't drink and read texts. ;)
